After an early morning pickup from your accommodation, in a comfortable air conditioned bus, this tour makes it's way north along the scenic Captain Cook Highway. This section of road, between Cairns and Port Douglas, is considered one of Australia's most scenic tourist drives. The mornings first activity is a stop at beautiful Mossman Gorge. Surrounded by thick lush rainforest you can either have a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters or enjoy a easy short bush walk. Mossman Gorge is the traditional homeland of the Kuku Yulangi tribe. We now have an extended stay at Mossman Gorge - so you can experience it at your leisure.
Next we cross the Daintree River Cable Ferry and enter the Cape Tribulation section of the Daintree Rainforest. With no bridge and no mains power north of the Daintree river you'll definitly be leaving civilisation behind. We'll stop at the Scenic Alexandra Range lookout. You'll enjoy views of the Daintree Rivermouth, Port Douglas, Snapper Island and even as far as Cairns on a clear day.
Please note that if you don't select the lunch option you will need to take along a packed lunch - luckily for us there's no Mcdonalds or KFC in the Daintree.
We'll then enjoy an informative guided bushwalk at either the Marrdja or Jindalba Boardwalks. These easy walks will take you deep into this ancient forest. These trees haven't changed in millions of years. It's almost like stepping into a time capsule. The Maardja boardwalk also takes in a complex mangrove swamp ecosystem.
After the guided bushwalk it's time for a picnic lunch on stunning Cape Tribulation Beach. This really is where the rainforest meets the sea! You'll have some free time to enjoy either the beach or do another easy bushwalk. After lunch we'll stop at the Daintree Ice Cream Company. If you like you can sample the unique tropical flavours with this tasty home made ice cream. Then it's back accross the breathtaking Alexandra Range to the ferry.
A crocodile and wildlife spotting cruise is next. This 1 hour cruise along the Daintree river will educate you about the marine and mangrove ecosystems as well as highlight the local wildlife. The Daintree River is home to the fearsome Estuarine or Saltwater Crocodile. You'll see crocodiles in their natural environment on most cruises.
On our way home we'll visit the picturesque tourist town of Port Douglas, the playground of the rich and famous. We'll arrive back in Cairns at about 6.30pm
