Sample Itinerary

Your naturalist guide will meet you at your accommodation and after introductions all round we then drive north along the scenic route via Mossman to Cape Tribulation.

Lush farmland contrasts with seascape as we approach the majestic Daintree River. Time for a short morning tea break then its 'all aboard' for an informative Daintree River cruise. Relax and enjoy the splendour only the Daintree can offer as you learn of Estuarine Crocodiles, mangrove forests and wildlife, this is nature at its best!

We ascend the Alexandra Range and pause for a panoramic view of World Heritage Tropical Rainforest merging with the azure colours of the Coral Sea. Experience the rainforest intimately on our elevated National Park Boardwalk. Accurate interpretations of flora and fauna will be given with ample time for photographs and questions as we search for the elusive, rare, and totally unique Southern Cassowary and other wildlife species within this habitat.

A delicious lunch is served at a local café (special dietary requirements must be notified at time of booking or at least 48 hours prior to travel). Our tour does a little more, it takes you beyond Cape Tribulation along 7kms of the 4WD Bloomfield Track to pristine Emmagen Creek where you enjoy a refreshing rainforest freshwater swim without the crowds. Seek fish and turtles in the creek, butterflies and exotic birds in the trees which enhance the tranquil surroundings.

At Cape Tribulation Beach, spend time strolling along the beach and boardwalk to the photographers' platform overlooking the mountains and coast where the 'Rainforest meets the Reef. A perfect photo opportunity!

Before beginning the journey home, we stop for a short afternoon refreshment stop for an exotic homegrown icecream at the Daintree Ice-creamery (ice cream at own cost). Sample unique flavours like Black Sapote, Soursop, Wattle Seed, Jackfruit and Coconut. Then, it is time to cross the Daintree River by cable ferry to begin our homeward journey somewhat wiser for our 'Total
Rainforest Experience'.

Shoken Nimi, 01 Aug 22
My favorite tour in Cairns. It is very interesting and exciting to see the jungle and the crocodiles.
Emma Lahey , 22 Jul 22
WOW, we covered so much in one day! It was an incredible tour! So much fun, wouldn't have done it any other way.
Niall Barton, 29 Jun 22
Really fun day out. Got to feed kangaroos and saw 2 big crocodiles on the river. The lunch was really nice. A good way to see the world's oldest rainforest.
Bianca Meadows, 26 May 22
I have wanted to see a rainforest since I was little and this did not disappoint. The place feels ancient with giant dinosaur birds crossing the road, and monstrous reptiles sitting by the river. The ice cream, lunch, and stop off at the wildlife park are the cherry on top of an already wonderful day out.
