Hi Philip,
                Think halfway between Cape Tribulation and Cooktown on the 
Bloomfield track (the bulldozed track that started the major rainforest 
conservation movement that eventually led to World Heritage listing for the wet 
tropics). It's a better road now and serves the Wujal Wujal Aboriginal 
community.  Lowland wet tropics species and the prospects of a few rainforest 
migrants in summer. Not too far to go north to Shipton's Flat for a bit more 
elevation and interesting species. Or south to the Daintree. Mangroves, 
riparian/riverine species (Bloomfield), rainforest and edge species.
