Day One (Lunch and Dinner)
At Port Douglas, you’ll have the chance to take a walk along the sandy shores of the famous 4-mile beach and take a dip in the cool shallows. Afterwards, we’ll take a cruise in search of the region’s saltwater crocs, learning all about their natural habitat and history in Cape Tribulation.
Then we’ll cross the Daintree River on the ferry and duck into the depths of the rainforest to look for some of Australia’s most elusive wildlife – keep your eyes peeled for the prehistoric cassowary.
After lunch, you’ll have time to kick back and relax on the beach, swim in the crystal clear creeks, and discover two impressive lookouts that provide panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Before we bed down for the night in accommodation at the heart of the rainforest, we’ll take a night walk through the undergrowth to experience the landscape under the veil of darkness.
Day Two (Breakfast)
On the morning of day two, you can choose to get up early and witness the sunrise before you’re free to do as you wish. You might choose to venture out into the Great Barrier Reef and experience one of the world’s most fascinating ecosystems, or you might want to ride horses through the rainforest or take a zip line adventure through the canopies of the ancient trees.
We then make our way back to the Daintree River for a crocodile and wildlife spotting cruise. After hopefully spotting a plethora of wildlife we journey to the renowned Mossman Gorge. Watch as butterflies and dragonflies fly around the giant boulders and mossy rocks. Take a dip (pending conditions) or sit back and enjoy the scenery.
Our last stop for the day will be the Rex Range Lookout. From here you will get the chance to take photos of the stunning stretch of coastline locally known as the ‘Great Barrier Reef Drive’. We then make our way back to Cairns where we finish the tour.
