A good night at the Daintree Store

We're feeling a little tired today after a great night at the Daintree Store restaurant, "Eleanor's Place" in Daintree Village last night. The new managers, Mary and Des, put on the first of what will be a monthly 'special' night - this time it was a Roast night with delicious beef and fresh vegetables for only $11.50.

It was run in close collaboration with the Daintree School (only about 18 students) and our lively and enthusiastic Principal, Nathan, kept everyone entertained with raffles throughout the evening - prizes donated by local businesses - and not only just about lost his voice but managed to raise about $500 for the school.

There was a huge turnout of locals (officially the local population is 'nominal') and visitors to our tiny Village and Mary said this morning that they served ninety-nine meals - a fantastic result. Now we're all looking forward to the next one!
