About
With a naturalist guide in the lead, explore Cape Tribulation, Daintree Rainforest, and Mossman Gorge. Listening to commentary about the UNESCO World Heritage Sites highlights allows you to learn much more about the unique ecosystem, history, and culture than you would by simply exploring on your own. Additionally, round-trip transportation from Cairns allows you to focus on the scenery on the journey down the picturesque Captain Cook Highway.

Highlights
  • Naturalist guide for expert commentary on the biodiverse ecosystems
  • Round-trip transportation so you can focus on the scenery during the drive
  • Morning tea and lunch inclusion lets passengers travel light
What to expect
  • After a stress-free pickup at your Cairns hotel, settle in for the ride along Captain Cook Highway, recognized as one of the world’s most scenic drives. Listen to in-depth commentary on the area from a naturalist or Eco/World Heritage-accredited guide, as you enjoy the scenery of centuries-old melaleuca trees and the Haycock and Double islands. Stop at the Rex Lookout for views and photo ops over Trinity Beach before a brief tour of Port Douglas. Continue to Mossman Gorge, where you’ll be refreshed with tea at the Mossman Gorge Centre. Then take a walk in the rain forest along the Mossman River, stopping for a refreshing swim, if time allows. Afterward, head to the sugar cane fields of North Queensland and grab lunch at the historic Daintree Tea House before embarking on a Daintree River cruise. Next up is Cape Tribulation, stopping at the Mount Alexandra Lookout on the way to the Marrdja Boardwalk, where you’ll take a guided walk in one of the most biodiverse areas of the rain forest. Spend some time at Cape Tribulation Beach and then at the Daintree Ice Cream Company for afternoon tea (own expense) before heading back to Cairns.

Just a heads up, if you do the right thing and cancel because you have covid symptoms you won't get your money back or even a reschedule. You have to cancel a full 24 hours before hand to get a reschedule...which is not always possible when you are sick...

Our day was amazing. Our tour guide Daryl was so informative especially his knowledge on bush foods and dangerous plants, he was fun and had a great sense of humour. The day went so fast and we had so many great experiences. A delicious morning tea of damper with jam and creme, Swimming in Mosman Gorge was amazing followed be an amazing lunch and talk on tropical fruits, a gorgeous boat trip with a fabulous guide talking about and finding local crocs, views of Cape Tribulation and Daintree followed by a delicious ice-cream at the Daintree Ice-cream factory (I chose the Daintree flavour.. So yummy). Thank you for for a perfect day.

Thank you very much for your kind words and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your day. Our lunch at The Daintree Tea House is always very popular and Solar Whisper offers an excellent way to see wildlife as part of your day. We are glad that you were able to appreciate the benefits of taking a small group guided tour - the only way to "experience" the real Daintree and it's great to hear that Darryl took such good care of you. I will pass on your feedback to him. Thank you for traveling with us.

We spent the day with Shane as our guide and he was so knowledgeable and personable. We learnt so much from him! We managed to fit everything as depicted in the itinerary and it was fun the whole time. The food and fruit tour at the Daintree Tea House was an extra highlight as well as the Daintree IceCream. Highly recommend this tour to experience Far North Queensland as it should be

Awesome day tour spent exploring Far North Queensland wilderness!
Our tour guide, Mik, was very friendly and informative: he gave us additional details about the ecology and history of the places we were visiting during the day, making the tour a richer experience. Highlights of the tour were the visit to Mossman Gorge, the delicious lunch at the Daintree Tea House Restaurant and Cape Tribulation.
A day well spent and a tour that I would recommend to other tourists visiting Cairns.

Travelling in a small tour group led by an expert tour guide is the best way to see the beauty and listen to the history of our land. Steve was our guide, very jovial, knowledgeable, informative and safety conscious- could not ask for more. Trip on the Daintree River was superb, actually saw 3 crocodiles at a safe distance. Lunch at the Daintree Tea House was delicious. The walk an Cape Tribulation beach nice and serene. Many other awesome sights and rainforest walks on the day. A day full of enjoyment, value for money.

We spent the day with Simon who really focused on making the trip more than just another tour. He connected the tour group before introducing us to language and the greeting of the local Indigenous mob. We learnt about the tropical fruits of the region and had a fine lunch before heading into the Daintree proper. An amazing day.
