When we got up this morning and checked with the tour desk at the hostel about renting a car and heading out to Daintree his was response was pretty much, "Good luck." He also was not overly helpful with suggesting things to to do. He told us we should have left over 2 hours earlier if wanted to actually see anything.
Not only did we beat all of his time estimates for driving we saw most everything worth seeing between Cairns and Cape Trib. Don't believe me? Check out some of these shots.
