Daintree Rainforest Cape Tribulation
1 Day Guided Jungle Tour
Departs daily from Cairns around 7.00am

Scenic Coastal Drive
After we depart Cairns we travel along one of the most scenic drives in Australia. The Captain Cook Highway passes by the Cairns Northern Beaches before travelling along the edge of the ocean as the mountains come down to meet the sea. We pass through Hartleys Creek, Wangettti Beach and the Rex Lookout as we take in the fabulous landscapes.
Car Ferry Crossing Daintree River
We cross the mighty Daintree River on an old style cable car ferry where we drive onto a floating platform that travels across the river on two steel cables to the other side. Once on the other side we will stop for a hearty lunch at the Beach House (included).
After lunch you have some time to take the boardwalk to Cape Tribulation beach which is one of the most scenic beaches you will ever see. Take a stroll along the amazing white sand and admire the palm trees that line the beach.
Guided Rainforest Walk
We continue our journey into the afternoon watching out for local wildlife on a guided rainforest walk and taking in the ancient ferns and trees in the lush green thick rainforest.
After driving through the windy rainforest roads on the Alexandra Range we stop at the Alexandra Lookout for one of the best landscape views in the region. Keep your camera handy to snap the views over the Daintree River estuary, Snapper Island and the Coral Sea.
Daintree River Wildlife Cruise
We take a one hour wildlife cruise on the famous Daintree River past mangroves and muddy banks. Keep your eyes peeled for the large salwater crocodiles living in this river as well as a large variety of birds and other wildlife that call the river home.
Once again we cross the Daintree River as we travel back along the scenic Captain Cook Highway and arrive back in Cairns around 7.30pm.
