Daintree and Cape Tribulation Tour from Cairns

Experience Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation with the added benefit of a guide's in-depth commentary on this full-day tour from Cairns. Learn more about the area's history, environment, flora, and fauna than you would on your own. Get access to a private rainforest retreat for a traditional Aussie barbecue lunch and embark on a cruise down the Daintree River. All activities are planned ahead, making this a stress-free experience.

What to Expect

A coach picks you up at your Cairns hotel, allowing you to relax, knowing the day’s transportation and activities are set.

Arrive at Daintree River and transfer to a riverboat to go deep into the rain forest, learning about the diverse habitat and surrounding ancient ecosystem. Your guide points out crocodiles, tree snakes, and exotic birds that call the area home.

Back on the coach, travel to lookout points in the Alexandra Range before stopping for a stroll along a tropical creek with access to a private rain forest reserve, where you sit down for a traditional Aussie barbecue lunch.

After lunch, head for Cape Tribulation for a walk between the rain forest and Coral Sea. Included is a stop at Mossman Gorge Centre for a heritage presentation by members of the Kuku Yalanji people and a walk through a forested gorge.

You return to your original departure point by coach at the tour’s end.
