Cape Tribulation Tropical Research Station Gallery

Station laundry area

The station's laundry facility consist of one "rescue" washing machine (shown here) and lots and lots of clothes line. The washing machine is mechanically sound, but a tad eccentric and requires a bit of human intervention to guide it through its cycles. The clothes lines in the yard can be propped up with long, lightweight plastic poles to take advantage of the Daintree's scant breezes. The tank for the composting toilet system can be seen next to the washer.
