Tour description provided by Viator

You've done the reef now spend a leisurely day exploring the rainforest on a Daintree day trip from Cairns, Palm Cove or Port Douglas. You'll start your day with a gentle rainforest walk around Mossman Gorge led by a local Aboriginal guide. Enjoy lunch at secluded Silky Oaks Lodge before continuing your Daintree day trip with a croc-spotting cruise on the river and take a short tour of stunning Port Douglas.

On arrival at beautiful Mossman Gorge you’ll meet your indigenous guide for a relaxed 1.5-hour walk. You’ll see culturally significant sites, pass by traditional bark shelters, and cross over cool, clear rainforest streams. Your guide will introduce you to many aspects of traditional Aboriginal culture including bush tucker, dreamtime stories and medicinal plant use. They will also give a fascinating narrative of the rainforest and their personal relationship with the environment.The guided walk takes you along easy-graded tracks and is suitable for all levels of fitness however it is not suitable for wheelchairs, walking frames, etc. After your walk you’ll stop for tea and damper, and the opportunity to ask your aboriginal guide more questions about their tribe and the area.Continue your Daintree day trip with a short tour through historical Mossman, Australia's most northern sugar town, on your way to Silky Oaks for lunch. Bring your appetite along as a delicious barramundi lunch awaits in this beautiful oasis amidst the rainforest, overlooking the Mossman River. Alternative lunch options are available for non-fish eaters.After lunch you'll board a cruise on the Daintree River. This relaxing one-hour cruise is a great way to spot local wildlife including birds, tree snakes and of course the fearsome saltwater crocodile. Have your camera ready - these cheeky crocs could pop up anywhere without a sound!Before returning to your hotel, you'll finish your day with a short tour of the once sleepy fishing town of Port Douglas, which is now a vibrant seaside village and popular local holiday spot.
