Join us for a day trip to Cape Tribulation, where the world’s oldest continually surviving tropical rainforests meets the world’s greatest the Great Barrier Reef. This is the only place on the planet where two natural World Heritage listed sites exist side by side. Such is the natural beauty and precious value of this, We give you ample time to explore this truly stunning piece of paradise on this full day tour

We begin the adventure with a scenic coastal drive from Cairns to Port Douglas. This is the far north’s very own version of the Great Ocean Road, providing panoramic views over the sparkling Coral Sea!

We head on to the Daintree River where we’ll cross on the Daintree River Cable ferry, while learning about the fragile ecosystem of this impressive river system

From crossing the mighty Daintree River we continue to Cape Tribulation where there is ample time to stop and eat lunch and an opportunity to purchase from the restaurant (however please note lunch is included on this tour). There will be a chance to explore the world famous Cape Tribulation beach, where the rainforest really does meet the reef!

Next it’s time to explore this ancient rainforest environment on a guided tour of the Marrdja Botanical Boardwalk. Our highly trained guides will give expert rainforest interpretation of this hugely diverse ecosystem. Stop at the Daintree Ice Cream Company to sample some of their home made tropical ice cream from fruits grown on site such as dragonfruit, sapote and macadamia.

A stop at Alexandra Range Lookout (Walu Wugirriga) provides a great photo opportunity of views over the Daintree River, its rainforest delta and out to the Coral Sea.

Time now to sit back for the return journey to Cairns, including a quick drive through Port Douglas, a picturesque, laid back, beachside village with loads of bars and cafes.

Wonderful tour

Great tour that meant we got to have a packed day visiting mossman gorge, spotting crocs on a cruise on the daintree river, walking through the rainforest to cape tribulation and stopping off at some beautiful look outs. John, our tour guide was lovely-a very well organised day which I would highly recommend !

Cape tribulation

We had a great day with Jimmy and Tom. The rainforest walk and the swim at Mossman gorge were the highlights . Oh and Jimmy’s jokes were good also

The best, the guide-driver

Too far from Cairns for only two static crocodiles behind the forest and a short visit to the beach. You can never be sure with wild animals, maybe it was just bad luck.
