Experience the Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation with the added benefit of a guide's in-depth commentary on this full-day tour from Cairns. Learn more about the area's history, environment, flora, and fauna than you would on your own. Get access to a private rainforest retreat for a traditional Aussie barbecue lunch and embark on a cruise down the Daintree River. All activities are planned ahead, making this a stress-free experience.
  • Cruise deep into the Daintree Rainforest to see crocodiles, birds, and snakes
  • Access to a private nature reserve for a traditional Aussie barbecue lunch
  • In-depth commentary from a guide on the local ecosystem
  • Round-trip transport from your port for seamless travel
What to Expect
A coach picks you up, allowing you to relax, knowing the day’s transportation and activities are set. Arrive at the Mossman Gorge Centre for a guided walk through one of the world's oldest rainforests. Then, transfer to a riverboat on the Daintree River to go deep into the rain forest, learning about the diverse habitat and surrounding ancient ecosystem. Your guide points out crocodiles, tree snakes, and exotic birds that call the area home. Then it's time for a traditional Aussie barbecue lunch at a private rainforest reserve before heading to Cape Tribulation for a guided walk between the rain forest and the Coral Sea. Stop for refreshments at the Daintree Ice Cream Company before traveling to lookout points in the Alexandra Range. You return to your original departure point by coach at the tour’s end.

A great day out, but go as early as you can
Well worth doing, but no need to go from the centre of Cairns. Just park your car at the cable car terminal. First
