The scenic drive from Cairns to Julatten via Port Douglas is around 90km. This tropical drive is a beautiful experience, especially between Palm Cove and Port Douglas. As you drive along this picturesque road, you feel that your driving on the edge of the sand. Along the way, you have the time to stop on the side of the road and take photographs of the natural world – Ocean that leads to Great Barrier Reef, Cape tribulation and the high mountains on the background.
Been living in this beautiful part of Australia so long, this time, I decided to take this road trip to Julatten to experience this scenic coastal drive. As you start to head north of Cairns, just before the scenic drive from Palm Cove, there is a rehab center for Kangaroos, just after Trinity beach roundabout. I decided to stop on the side of the road to see the Kangaroos, which are regarded as one of the iconic animals in Australia. Kangaroos are very fascinating animals, purely live on grass and are very important and symbolic to indigenous Australians. For those visitors who never seen the Kangaroos before, this is the best place to see this animal up and close in an enclosed area without been frighten. It was worthwhile taking some pictures before I started my scenic drive.
