      Daintree Rainforest Visit with a 1 year old

      State of Queensland Apr 2, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      Hi VTers!

      I have been doing a lot of reading on the Daintree Rainforest. Little did I know that there are so many different areas to explore! It seems like these all offers different things to see in the rainforest, but my main concern is that we will have a 1 year old with us. I am trying to determine if there is an area that will be easier for us to visit with him. We will most likely have to carry him. As much as we would like to do a hike through the rainforest, I don't think that will be possible, but we would definitely like to see as much of the environment as we can.

      Cape Tribulation has caught our eye, but the Daintree Discovery Centre and Mossman Gorge Center also sound like they provide good options for traveling with a young child.

      We will have a rental car 4WD. 

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

      Thanks so much, Kimberly

      Hi guys, my name is toshi, i am from japan and Just starting to plan a potential MP trip in May this year. We would fly in to Cuzcu thru Lima, and then would like to take the train to get to MP (already checked Inca Rail which is available).

      Does anyone have any suggestions on how many days to spend in MP before taking the train back? Also how long does it take to hike up to the top? We don't want to hike down the trail (which is why we are taking the train), but what is the remaining route to reach MP?

    • Suggestions for returning to Canada?

      Australia Apr 10, 2014 at 8:08 PM

      I've been traveling Australia on a working holiday visa since September 2013. I've seen most of the things I had planned to and I had an amazing time, but I think I may be ready to move on to somewhere new. For the past few months I've basically been working a crappy job with just enough to get me by, and the registration on my car is about to run out. I don't think it is worth it to spend any more money on it as I don't know how much longer I will be around here.

      Originally I was planning to go back to Canada some time between July and August, but now I'm thinking I might do it sooner as I haven't really been doing anything interesting lately. I don't really have a time frame, but I recently came up with the idea to travel to some other places on the way home. I have a very low budget - basically next to nothing, but If I can save up enough money for a flight to say.. Thailand?.. then I could travel, work for a bit, travel, work, etc. and just work my way back to Canada, rather than just fly straight back home. Does anyone have any suggestions for cheap traveling, and possibly some suggestions for jobs as a backpacker? I realize it is next to impossible to do this without money, but I'm sure it has been done before. Probably not the most realistic idea but I'd like to see more of the world before I go home and get back to every day life.

      A little about myself:

      • I'm a 23 year old male, single, open to anything really.

      • I love learning about new cultures and I don't mind doing some hard work for accommodation.

      • I don't particularly need to be back in Canada at any certain time, but I would like to be back for Christmas.

      • Next to no money, but if I save for a few weeks I could maybe come up with 1000 dollars or so.. not enough for a flight straight back to Canada.

      Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    • Jim Jim & Twin Falls in May

      by leighjohnson Online Now Nov 8, 2012 at 12:04 AM

      We are planning a trip of the Darwin/ Kakadu & Katherine Regions in late May 2013. One of the areas I have read about which interests us, is the Jim Jim falls and Twin falls area. We will be hiring a 4WD from a hire car company (and need to read the fine print on using this) but I cannot find much information on whether this is feasible or not.
      Is there enough water running in the falls at this time of the year, and therefore worth the extra money to hire a 4WD, as this is really the main reason for us to do this.
      I researched doing a tour of these falls, but they don't start until June, so this bothers me a little as well, as is it unsafe for us to drive in this area?
      Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi, Lady Gaw and I have been lucky enough to score a half price booking (buy one get one free) for The Ghan from Darwin to Adelaide in July. We are now quickly considering a 10 day holiday in NT where we've never been to before. We are NOT huntin, fishin campin types, but are thinking of 3 nights Darwin then rent a 2WD for time in Kakadu followed by 2 nights Katherine and then finish up with a further 2 nights Darwin. Everything in the way of accom in Kakadu is expensive but we can't decide between 2 or 3 nights and perhaps all in Jabiru with 2 day trips from there and see something else in the half day available before we head to Katherine. We want to be able to go see Katherine Gorge but not a "hurry up and get going" whistle stop tour from The Ghan with only 4 hours stop over in the town.

      1. Where would you stay in Kakadu and I'm leaning towards Aurora Kakadu Lodge?
      2. How long would you stay?
      3. Is the park pass @25 per head usable in Katherine Gorge as well as Kakadu?

      I'll be in Kakadu National Park in November, on the 21st and 22nd. I read that this is the wet season, and some attractions or access to attractions is not permissable. Then, I also read that the real wet season is not till late December and January. Can anyone share what I can really expect? What sights will I not have access too? Also, this time of year, what is open, and what are the sights and attractions not to be missed? Thank you?

      Kakadu entry fee

      by 1+1 Online Now Dec 13, 2004 at 4:17 PM

      Actually a notice rather than a question. As of 20 December 2004 the entry fee into Kakadu ($16.25 per person) will be abolished. If you go in on the 19th you'll have to pay. The camping and other fees will stay the same. The latest information now is that they are planning to close the entry station (fee collection place) at noon on the 19th. So going in during the afternoon will save you money. The entry station normally closes about 6PM. But after that day it won't be opening again.
