Tour description

Take a day trip from Cairns or Port Douglas to cruise the Daintree River and explore the Cape Tribulation rainforest. You'll have free time at Cape Tribulation to take a guided walk and drive the 4WD-only Bloomfield Track.

Your naturalist guide will take you north along the scenic route to Mossman, where lush farmland contrasts with coastal scenery as you approach the majestic Daintree River. Board your vessel for your informative Daintree River cruise and enjoy morning tea as your glide on the water.Relax and enjoy the Daintree's splendor as you learn about estuarine crocodiles and mangrove forests, and enjoy nature at its best.

After your cruise you will be guided to the National Park Board Walk. You'll ascend the Alexandra Range and pause for panoramic views of the tropical rainforest merging with the Coral Sea. You will have a scrumptious barbecue lunch with homemade salads and Australian wine. While at lunch you might have the opportunity to hand-feed the wallabies. 

After lunch there is no set timetable or schedule, so throw away your watch and enjoy elevated walks through Cape Tribulation with your experienced guide, with ample time for questions and photographs. Make your way to Emmagen Creek which is a 7 kilometer track up along the 4WD-only Bloomfield Track and swim in the freshwater. From here we head to Cape Tribulation Beach to enjoy a stroll along the beach or walk to the photographer's platform for amazing photo opportunities. 

On your return journey there will be a short afternoon refreshment stop where you can pat a kangaroo, have a beer or sip a cup of local tea, feeling fully refreshed from your "Rainforest Experience" at Cape Trib.
