Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation and Rainforest Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary Day Tour
From US$132.25
Experience the wildlife, mountains, sea and rainforest that define the Wet Tropics of Queensland on this diverse full-day tour from Cairns or Port Douglas. Hand-feed kangaroos and observe other native creatures at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, and explore the World Heritage-listed biodiversity of Daintree National Park. Take a guided nature walk through the rain forest of Mossman Gorge, savor a delicious lunch at Cape Tribulation, swim in the Coral Sea and cruise down the beautiful Daintree River.
What to Expect
Honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988, Daintree National Park is a great destination for sampling the exceptional biodiversity of the Wet Tropics of Queensland. Your full-day adventure begins with pickup at your Cairns or Port Douglas hotel and a scenic drive north along the rugged Coral Sea coast.

Your first stop is Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, an eco-park where you can observe the unique wildlife of Australia’s rainforest, wetlands and grasslands. Browse the well-designed habitats to observe cassowaries, koalas and crocodiles, and hand-feed friendly kangaroos and wallabies. 

Continue on to Mossman Gorge on the southern border of Daintree National Park. Take a guided nature walk through the rainforest, keeping an eye out for native species like the Ulysses butterfly and Boyd's forest dragon. Observe the lush landscape from platforms above the Mossman River and learn about the customs of local Kuku Yalanji people.

Cross the Daintree River on a ferry, and make your way to Cape Tribulation. Admire spectacular views from Mt Alexandra Lookout, where you can see all the way to the Great Barrier Reef on a clear day. At the Cape Tribulation Beach House, stop for a delicious lunch featuring your choice of steak, locally-caught barramundi or a vegetarian option.

After lunch, enjoy leisure time to stroll along the white sandy beaches and boardwalk at Cape Tribulation, swim in a nearby tropical pool or take a dip in the Coral Sea (depending on the season).

Finally, take a 1-hour cruise along the Daintree River, where you can spot saltwater crocodiles, reptiles, exotic birds and butterflies that make their home in the mangrove wetlands. On the return drive south, make one last stop at Rex Lookout before your full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Memorable outing

We drove ourselves and had the best day, stopping for walks through rainforest and the beaches which where white sands and post card material.

Too Long but Guide was Great

I normally don't mind super long tours as long as you get to spend some time off the bus, but this day was so full that every location was so brief that it felt like you never got off the bus. It said it included...More

Unless you want to hear about local information you can easily do it in your hire car yourself. On tour we were taken to a local private water hole but then you are on a time schedule.
