    I did a similar road trip last year to Tropical North Queensland, but only went up as far as Cape Tribulation. I was gob-smacked by the raw beauty of The Daintree . Did you go to Mossman Gorge? It was very impressive as well.

      Yes I did go to Mossman years ago. This time I skipped it, unfourtunately. I did not they have opened a new visitors centre with a guided rainforest tour. I think I missed out….but there will be a next time, I am sure 🙂

    What an amazing trip – how was your experience with Juicy Crib? Was the campervan comfortable for a 15 night journey?

      Hi Savi! The campervan Jucy Crib is a small, compact one, suitable for one or max 2 people. I had to stow my bag on the sleeping compartment. I am small and thin, so I had enough room to move comfortably, however I think it is going to be a bit too small for 2 persons, you are better off with a 4berth (Penthouse), as there is much more space on top of the camper. I travelled 7 days with it and I cannot complain. I was looking for a small compact campervan and Jucy had all the features I wanted. As for comfort, you sleep on the unfolded rear seats of the campervan.If you travel as a couple and have luggage with you, I would definitely suggest to rent out the 4th berth campervan. I hope this helps. Where are you heading next?
