Cape Tribulation and Daintree Day Tour Depart from Cairns

Commence the adventure with a scenic coastal drive from Cairns to Port Douglas. This is the far north's very own great ocean road and provides panoramic views over the sparkling Coral Sea. Heading north the first stop is at Mossman Gorge, which is in the southern sector of the world famous Daintree National Park. This gorge has been carved out by the cold mountain waters of the Mossman River, which winds through large granite boulders, bordered by lush green rainforest. It's a magical place and you'll participate in a "Welcome to Country" with the traditional owners, the Kuku Yalanji people, who will also cleanse you of evil spirits with a smoke ceremony and apply traditional rainforest body paint to you. There’s the opportunity for you to enjoy a refreshing swim in the cascading waters.

Continuing north cross the mighty Daintree River and head to Cape Tribulation for lunch. This is absolute waterfront dining with the sand between your toes. After lunch, it's time to explore this ancient rainforest environment on an interesting guided tour of the Marrdja Botanical Boardwalk. The highly trained guides will give expert rainforest interpretation, which will inform and impress.

Be amazed at the huge diversity you will encounter, everything from low lying ferns and shrubs, to the massive rainforest canopy and even mangrove ecosystems all in one short easy walk. Next stop – Floravilla – which has 26 flavours of locally made ice-cream, including dragonfruit, coconut ginger, black sapote and goji berry with rainforest honey. Yum! (*Ice cream tasting and purchases are at own costs)

Photo opportunity at the Alexandra Range Lookout (Walu Wugirriga), which provides sweeping views over the Daintree River, its rainforest delta and out to the Coral Sea. This afternoon it's onto the river for a wildlife cruise where you might get to see a crocodile, while learning about the fragile ecosystem of this impressive serpent-like river system.

Then it's back on to the bus for the return journey to Cairns, including a quick drive through Port Douglas, a picturesque beachside village with a laid back vibe and loads of bars and cafes.
