Know More about this tour

Depart from your accommodation in Cairns (6:45am), Palm Cove (7:15am), or Port Douglas (7:45am) and travel through rich farming areas toward the World Heritage-listed forest region of the Daintree National Park. The Wet Tropics are one of the richest sites for biodiversity on the planet, and Daintree is a place of rugged mountains, deep gorges and flowing rivers.

Step aboard your own craft for a cruise along the smooth waters of the Daintree River under the overhead canopies. Spot Ulysses butterflies, Kingfishers, pythons, and other wildlife and cruise the silent backwaters where crocodiles can usually be seen basking on the muddy banks. Arriving on the northern side of the river, enter the Daintree section of the Wet Tropics World Heritage protected rainforest and enjoy a home-made morning tea underneath the rainforest canopy.

Next, head to the beautiful Alexandra Range, passing through local rainforest along the way. Take a scenic hike through this incredible ecosystem with a guided walk to view ancient plants and fascinating wildlife. Get an insight from your guide into the local aboriginal culture.

The next stop is to one of the pristine beaches that adorn the coastline of Cape Tribulation, where your guide will highlight the wildlife and ecosystems unique to this part of the world. Enjoy a delicious included lunch of rainforest-inspired local produce amid the serenity of the jungle. Get to see reptiles and frogs in the area or see the kangaroos and wallabies at a nearby private zoo.

After lunch, see unusual, exotic fruit trees originating from all over the globe's tropical regions. The orchard here is also host to some exotic species of tropical flowering plants, both native and introduced. The sole purpose of the fruit grown here is to make pure, fresh, ice-cream and sorbet, which is made on the property and sold nowhere else on the globe. (Ice-cream is an optional extra.)

The last stop is the outstanding panoramic view at Alexandra Range Lookout. From here, enjoy spectacular views of the mouth of the Daintree River, Snapper Island, and (on a clear day) Port Douglas. One final treat for the day is the crossing on the Daintree River Ferry the iconic vehicle punt that transfers you out of the rainforest at the end of the day.

The tour concludes at your original departure point at around 4pm.

    The tour was beautiful, feeding the kangaroos was awesome. Our guide was attentive and knowledgeable. Seeing the cassowary in the wild was amazing. We appreciated you still taking us on the tour even though there were only two of us.
