Overview
With a naturalist guide in the lead, explore Cape Tribulation, Daintree Rainforest, and Mossman Gorge. Listening to commentary about the UNESCO World Heritage Sites highlights allows you to learn much more about the unique ecosystem, history, and culture than you would by simply exploring on your own. Additionally, round-trip transportation from Cairns allows you to focus on the scenery on the journey down the picturesque Captain Cook Highway.

What to Expect
After a stress-free pickup at your Cairns hotel, settle in for the ride along Captain Cook Highway, recognized as one of the world’s most scenic drives. Listen to in-depth commentary on the area from a naturalist or Eco/World Heritage-accredited guide, as you enjoy the scenery of centuries-old melaleuca trees and the Haycock and Double islands. Stop at the Rex Lookout for views and photo ops over Trinity Beach before a brief tour of Port Douglas. Continue to Mossman Gorge, where you’ll be refreshed with tea at the Mossman Gorge Centre. Then take a walk in the rain forest along the Mossman River, stopping for a refreshing swim, if time allows. Afterward, head to the sugar cane fields of North Queensland and grab lunch at the historic Daintree Tea House before embarking on a Daintree River cruise. Next up is Cape Tribulation, stopping at the Mount Alexandra Lookout on the way to the Marrdja Boardwalk, where you’ll take a guided walk in one of the most biodiverse areas of the rain forest. Spend some time at Cape Tribulation Beach and then at the Daintree Ice Cream Company for afternoon tea (own expense) before heading back to Cairns.

Simon was accommodating and knowledgable. The day was long but well planned. Both Simon and our river guide did their best to search for wildlife and point out anything unusual. If you are interested in learning more about the rain forest, this is the trip for you.

Thank you for taking the time to write a reply. I am pleased to hear that our guide Simon was able to help you appreciate our region. Our small group tours help you to appreciate the rainforest without the crowds and a guided tour really does help you appreciate all that our region has to offer including our wonderful cassowaries and crocodiles. Thank you for traveling with us.

Great sightseeing of tour - not at least crocodile spotting on Daintree River. But we were not impressed of the guide at all. Didn`t bother gathering the group before talking. Took a quick scrool through the rainforrest in order to find time to swim instead and the guide were

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It's always lovely to hear how much you enjoyed our full day Cape Tribulation day tour. I'm glad that Mario made you feel so welcome and was able to help you to experience this area with plenty of time at each of our attractions. Being a small group tour, we do try to take the time to allow flexibility in your day and if that means taking time out to show our clients something we think they will enjoy, then we can. Our day is as much about the people as it about the area we visit and our guides do go above and beyond because they love it as much as you will. I will pass on your fabulous feedback to Mario. Thank you for traveling with us. Regards Chris
