What to Expect
After a stress-free pickup at your Cairns hotel, settle in for the ride along Captain Cook Highway, recognized as one of the world’s most scenic drives. Listen to in-depth commentary on the area from a naturalist or Eco/World Heritage-accredited guide, as you enjoy the scenery of centuries-old melaleuca trees and the Haycock and Double islands. Stop at the Rex Lookout for views and photo ops over Trinity Beach before a brief tour of Port Douglas. Continue to Mossman Gorge, where you’ll be refreshed with tea at the Mossman Gorge Centre. Then take a walk in the rain forest along the Mossman River, stopping for a refreshing swim, if time allows. Afterward, head to the sugar cane fields of North Queensland and grab lunch at the historic Daintree Tea House before embarking on a Daintree River cruise. Next up is Cape Tribulation, stopping at the Mount Alexandra Lookout on the way to the Marrdja Boardwalk, where you’ll take a guided walk in one of the most biodiverse areas of the rain forest. Spend some time at Cape Tribulation Beach and then at the Daintree Ice Cream Company for afternoon tea (own expense) before heading back to Cairns.

Thank you for taking the time to write a reply. Our small group tours help you to appreciate the rainforest without the crowds and a guided tour really does help you appreciate all that our region has to offer including our wild and beautiful cassowaries and crocodiles. Thank you for traveling with us.

It takes a while to drive up from Cairns to Cape Tribulation, so once you are there it is well worth staying an extra night. You can then go on the Ocean Safari half-day tour, and the rainforest guided night walk, which are excellent! Mossman Gorge is lovely for a walk in

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It's always lovely to hear how much you enjoyed our full day Cape Tribulation day tour. I'm glad that Jean made you feel so welcome and was able to help you to experience this area with plenty of time at each of our attractions. Our day is as much about the people as it about the area we visit and our guides do go above and beyond because they love it as much as you. Thank you for traveling with us.
