Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge

Well organised tour, amazing experience but be prepared for a long day. Comfortable bus with aircon which makes the trip so much better especially on really hot and humid days

We did a tour of Daintree Rain Forest with Down Under Tours and were very impressed. Our guide Daniel was most informative and interesting, the vehicle was great and we had a wonderful day, would definitely recommend the tour and especially the guide.

Booked our visit to Kuranda through Value Day Tours which pick you up at your hotel and transport you to the Cable Rail with light commentary along the 30 minute drive. They drop you off at the Rail and give you tickets for the rail and our return ticket on the scenic rail. They then picked us up at the... More

We enjoyed both days of tours with Down Under Tours. The first was Cape Tribulation and The Daintree Forest. It was well organized and very enjoyable but was overshadowed by the full day Kuranda tour which we loved. The first stop, Tjapukai was extremely interesting and fun. We got to try using native spears and boomerangs. The ride up to... More

Riding up in the sky rail left a lot to be desired but, out of fairness, I think this is one of those things that has more wow when there are actually waterfalls and blooming foliage in the rainforest! There was almost not a drop of water during our tour. The cabs them selves were very clean and the staff... More

Me and my wife went on this tour, which included a walk through Mossman Gorge, lunch at Silky Oakes Lodge, a river cruise and a short trip through port Douglas. The attractions were good, especially the walk through the gorge which was led by Skip, a local to the area. He was informative and passionate - really good! The issue... More

I've always wanted to travel the train and it did not disappoint. However, this tour was the last value for money off the many that I did. I spent a fortune on the recommended activities in Kuranda - including lunch. It was a good day but very very overpriced. I do acknowledge that this is not the fault of Down... More

We booked the Daintree Walkabout tour with Down Under Tours (booked through AAT Kings), which includes the most informative walk in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area Mossman Gorge, a scrumptious lunch at Silky Oaks Lodge, and a very exciting river boat trip to see huge, prehistoric crocs in their own environment. All of the tour components are interesting and... More
