Your tour commences at your accommodation in Cairns where our experienced Rainforest Guide collects you.

After picking everyone up we depart Cairns by 8am. We head North and travel along Australia’s Premier scenic coastal road in a comfortable air-conditioned bus. Our first stop is the famous Mossman Gorge. Surrounded by lush rainforest – The gorge is a magical location for a refreshing swim. The clear mountain river cuts through thick rainforest and tumbles over boulders on its journey to the sea.

After the Gorge we have morning tea.

Heading North we cross the mighty Daintree River on a cable ferry and enter the Cape Tribulation section of the Daintree National Park. Here things really begin to change, we think, for the better. We find the road narrows and the rainforest towers over us as we enjoy the ever-increasing beauty of this ancient Gondwana Rainforest.

We stop at the Alexandra Range Lookout, which gives you a birds-eye view of the Daintree River, Port Douglas and on a clear day, landmarks south of Cairns.

After the lookout, we experience the Marrdja or Jindalba Boardwalk. Here we see trees that have been caught in a time capsule – they haven’t changed in millions of years. As we pass through the ancient rainforest, the Marrdja Boardwalk leads us over a complex mangrove swamp system. Very interesting.

Passengers staying overnight will be delivered/collected to/from their selected accommodations at approx 12pm. For passengers staying overnight, lunch is not included. This is due to the separate locations of accommodations and the time taken in pick-ups and drop-offs.

On return journey we head back towards the Daintree River. We stop at the Daintree Ice-Cream Company to give you a chance to buy a tropical fruit Ice-Cream (Time Permitting & eaten on the bus).

It’s Croc spotting time! Your Crocodile/Wildlife spotting adventure on the Daintree River takes us through the domain of the large Estuarine Crocodiles. Egrets wade near mangroves in the murky water of the river where crocodiles wait patiently for a meal. We look for Pythons, Tree Snakes, Butterflies and lots of other wildlife on this cruise. Everyone will have afternoon tea at this time.

On our way home we visit the picturesque township of Port Douglas. We stop at Rex Range lookout before arriving back in Cairns after an exciting day at about 6.30pm.
