What to expect

This exciting day tour begins when your friendly and experienced guide picks you up from your accommodation. Leaving Cairns and the Northern Beaches, you will travel along one of Australia's most spectacular coastal drives to the resort village of Port Douglas and learn of some of its highlights and interesting history. Then drive to the Daintree River where morning tea is provided before embarking on a one hour Daintree river cruise. The Daintree River is home to a diverse ecosystem and the cruise guide will help you spot some of the wildlife including birds, snakes, frogs, flying foxes and crocodiles, so make sure to have your camera ready! After the river cruise, you will travel to the spectacular Alexander Range Lookout before arriving at your private lunch location at The Daintree Entomological (insect) Museum. This quaint museum houses the largest live and dead collection of insects in Australia. You will be taken on an interesting 20 minute guided tour of the Museum during which you will learn some very interesting facts about these creatures and the roles they play in the ecological balance of our rainforest. Nearby, there is a lovely picnic area where you will enjoy a nice lunch and a refreshing swim at the beautiful private rainforest creek.

After Lunch, travel further north to the isolated Cape Tribulation where the beach beckons for you to stroll along it's coral sands. This is the only place on Earth where two World Heritage listed areas touch one another. There is time to visit the Cape Tribulation lookout before departing for a relaxing and informative guided walk through the Cape Tribulation National Park. After the walk, you will be offered afternoon tea before boarding your air-conditioned vehicle to traverse the Alexander Range where you will see the rare and primitive King Ferns growing in abundance. You then cross the river by Cable Barge and enjoy a leisurely drive to Cairns with spectacular views of the Coral Sea before returning to your accommodation.
