Daintree picnic at the beach.

Thornton Beach - where is it?

Picnic ground at Thornton Beach

North of the Daintree River there are no electric BBQ's so we take out own single burner camp stove. (Available for under $30 at Woolworths in Mossman.)

One of our favourite picnic meals is deep sea fillets in beer batter available in the freezer section of Woolworths Mossman. (8 fillets for $7)
Cooks in 15 minutes turning 3 times at the 5 minutes mark. 

Serve with fresh leafy salad, $2.50 at Woolworths and chilled white wine. 
(Gossips Sauvignon Blanc, $3.99 at Dan Murphy's Smithfield.)

The picnic ground is a rustic setting behind the beach.

The picnic ground is somewhat rustic and the tables and seats are not very clean. Visiting in the wet season we took insect spray and were glad of it. The quaint shelter sheds are not insulated and there are holes in the roof. Insulation would be handy if for nothing else but reducing the sound of heavy rainfall in the wet season.
There are no toilets close-by. There are no rubbish bins either so you need to take your rubbish with you.

The nearest accommodation to this spot is Thornton Beach House and Thornton Beach Bungalows
