Overview

Make like Tarzan as you swing through the trees of the world’s oldest rain forest on this fun 2-hour jungle surfing tour, including hotel pick-up from Cape Tribulation. Clip on your harness, power your way to the treetop platforms on a giant human hamster wheel, then tackle a thrilling treetop zip-line course through the UNESCO-listed Daintree Rainforest.

What to Expect

On arrival at the harnessing centre, you’ll meet your team of guides who’ll be taking you ziplining through the jungle. Each guest will be fitted with a full body harness and helmet.

A 350m walk through the forest leads to the Departure Lounge, where you’ll be given a safety briefing before leaving the forest floor to be hoisted up to platform 1 by the Human Hamster Wheel Cable Lift.

On each platform, a guide will greet you, connect you safely to the tree, and tell you fascinating story of the Daintree Rainforest before sending you on your way to the next platform.

From Platform 1 – 4, you will travel in pairs a few metres apart. The guides control your gentle flight, leaving you free to take photographs or just admire the stunning views. Platform 3 is cantilevered off the hillside and gives you some amazing views of the Great Barrier Reef and canopy. Platform 3 to 4, you’ll stop briefly at the highest point of the tour, 20 metres above Mason Creek. If you visit during the green season, this creek will be a raging torrent of white water.

Platform 4 to 5, is the opportunity for thrill seekers to try something different, and if you choose to do so, you can flip yourself upside down and watch the ground beneath you speed past. Don’t forget to give us your best Tarzan cry!

The final span to the ground features side-by-side racing ziplines with speeds over 45km/h! Or there’s an option to take it slowly!

Then you have a short walk back to the harnessing centre where you'll be taken back to the Jungle Adventure Centre to view your photos and then on to your Cape Tribulation accommodation if you’re staying in the local area.

Amazing Staff Made Us First-Timers Feel Comfortable!

We were hesitant about zip lining above the canopy however the expert staff at Cape Trib Jungle Safari made us very comfortable. You can tell personal safety is their number one concern even though you need to sign a bunch of waivers. The instruction is...More

Do It!

Wasnt sure at first if I wanted to do this, as I thought it might hurt my back or hip more than it does. But it was so worth it.
