Know More about this tour

After pickup from your hotel, travel by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle north along the coast, taking in rugged mountains to one side and miles of golden sand and crystal clear waters to the other.

When you reach Wildlife habitat port douglas, disembark to explore the wildlife park, which features native Australian wildlife in rainforest, wetlands and grasslands exhibits. See the critters up close, including cassowaries, tree-kangaroos, crocodiles, koalas and a variety of birds. You can even hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies.

Next, travel another 15 minutes north to Mossman Gorge, located in the southern section of Daintree National Park. Your guide shares informative commentary as you take a leisurely walk through the rainforest to viewing decks above the Mossman River. Learn about how local Kuku Yalanji people utilize forest plants for food, shelter and medicine and look for wildlife such as the Ulysses butterfly and Boyd's forest dragon.

Continue up the coast to Cape Tribulation, using the Daintree River Ferry to cross the river. Stop at the Mt Alexandra Lookout for spectacular views that extend on a clear day from the Daintree rainforest and Daintree River across the Coral Sea to the edge of the Great barrier reef.

Arrive at Cape Tribulation and enjoy a delicious lunch at Cape Tribulation Beach House. For your main course, choose from locally caught barramundi (fish), steak or a vegetarian option, accompanied by garden salad, chips, fresh-baked bread and tropical fruit.

In the afternoon, enjoy free time to explore the white sands of the world famous beach. You can swim in the Coral Sea (in season), cool off in the rainforest pool at Cape Tribulation Beach House or stroll along the beach and boardwalk.

Then return to the Daintree River for a 1-hour cruise in calm waters. Be on the lookout for birds, butterflies, reptiles and saltwater crocodiles, and marvel at the tall mangroves that line the banks.

After the river cruise, your guide returns you to your hotel with a brief stop at Rex Lookout between Port Douglas and Cairns.

    The wildlife habitat in Port Douglas was the best part of his tour. We didn't actually walk thru the Daintree forest just drove thru. Spent alot of time on the bus with the aircon.

    This tour was well beyond my expectations. The stops on the itinerary were all interesting and informative. The tour guide was personable and knowledgeable. Also, the weather was amazing the day we went. We saw a Boyd’s Forest Dragon, a cassowary, and two salt water crocodiles in the wild! The tour even ran 15 minutes ahead of schedule in the morning due to a small group and everyone being on time.

    The guide Steve was very knowledgeable and nice. He pointed us many small animals we would not see ourselves such as insects, spiders and baby sharks.
    At the end of the tour, we left our camcorder on the bus but Steve found it and left at the office for us to pick up. We appreciate it a lot.

    This tour was great, and our tour guide made it an even better experience. He was enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable. He showed us (and demonstrated) so many things in the rainforest, it was such a fun experience. He even went out of his way to show us things that weren't technically on the tour, but were incredible and made us feel so lucky to see. Highly recommended!

    Excellent tour and guide. Gavin was very knowledgeable about every facet of the tour. All the stops were very enjoyable I would highly recommend this tour and Gavin.

    If your time is limited in Cairns this is a great way to see a lot in a short amount of time. You could use a little more time at the animal sanctuary but other than that this tour is perfectly timed out. Cape Tribulation is beautiful! The guide was very good and knew a lot about the history of the area, as well as was an expert at pointing out specific vegetation and wildlife. I highly recommend this tour!

    Good trip. Lots to see. It was really nice doing lots of bits. Would have liked a little longer at wildlife habitat

    The guide was very knowledgeable and he can answer most of our questions in the trip. The tour was very well organised and lunch was good too. We had a great day and got a lot of take away about Mossman and Daintree back from the trip:)

    Late start to the day, clearly flustered bus driver. Well under an hour spent at the wildlife park (tickets were offered for the next day but as we already had a full itinerary we couldn't accept as much as we would have loved to see more of the park). Bus trip out to a shuttle bus to access the gorge for a quick board walk. Back on the bus for a very long drive to a backpackers type place for lunch. No Rainforest walks near this site, just a rather ordinary stretch of beach. Not sure why the drive was so far to that particular place when others were passed along the way, unless they have a super cheap deal. Another long drive back to the saviour of the day Daintree River Cruise, a great time with a super informative guide. Much of this tour was unfortunately spent on the bus and in an extremely hurried fashion as the points to visit were far apart. Most people actually ended up falling asleep on the bus for stretches of the 'tour'. Would be better off to take a self drive to see the parts worth doing (the Wildlife Park and Daintree River Cruise) and exploring the Daintree yourself to actually get the chance to walk amongst the Rainforest. Other tours we did during our stay were the Kuranda Day Tour and Quicksilver Reef tour which were both amazing and so well run.
