What You Can Expect
Step aboard the Osprey V for your high-speed cruise to the reef, cruising at more than 30 knots. Once you arrive at your exclusive mooring point on the reef, take a guided snorkeling tour or try a free scuba-diving lesson.
Your Australian barbecue lunch includes fresh fish, steak, sausages and a selection of pastas, salads and prawns.
When your five hours on the reef are up, head back to shore by boat, enjoying a cheese platter and selection of tropical fruit while musicians and entertainers make the trip back as fun and enjoyable as the rest of the day.
Kuranda Scenic Railway Day Trip from Cairns (Day 2):
Departing Cairns aboard the Kuranda Scenic Railway, learn about Far North Queensland's pioneering history on the leisurely train journey to Kuranda, the 'village in the rainforest.' Relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery as you wind your way through the rainforest, stopping briefly for a photo op at Barron Gorge and when you cross Stoney Creek Bridge. Then arrive at Kuranda Station, one of the most photographed railway stations in the world.
You have free time in Kuranda to do a little shopping at the heritage markets if you wish, grab some lunch in one of the many restaurants and cafes, or have a wildlife encounter at Birdworld, the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary or Kuranda Koala Gardens (all shopping, food and entrance fees to attractions at own expense).
Then make the return journey to Cairns aboard the stunning Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Hear the birds singing and smell the fresh scent of the rainforest as you silently skim just meters above the tree canopy in a six-person gondola. Enjoy unbeatable views from the rainforest to the reef as you pass over the peak of the mountain range. There are two stops along the way where you can hop out and explore this amazing environment from the forest floor on boardwalks, at scenic lookouts and at state-of-the-art Rainforest Interpretation Centre.
Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation and Rainforest Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary Day Tour from Cairns (Day 3; L):
This tropical day trip takes you along one of Australia’s most scenic coastal roads to the coastal resort town of Port Douglas. Pay a visit to the Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary to see native animals, including koalas and rare cassowaries, and have the chance to handfeed a wallaby or kangaroo.
Cross the Daintree River by cable ferry to enter the Cape Tribulation section of Daintree National Park, where you'll enjoy a delicious lunch at Cape Tribulation Beach House Restaurant (included). Spend an hour at your leisure on Cape Tribulation Beach before taking a guided walk through historic Mossman Gorge and the heart of Cape Tribulation. Along the way, your guide will share the fascinating secrets of the rainforest, its food, medicines and history.
Your journey then returns to the Daintree River, where you will enjoy a wildlife cruise, searching for crocodiles, birds and other mangrove wildlife. Before your day in the rainforest concludes back in Cairns, stop for spectacular views from the Rex Lookout.
The Tour was super. A high light snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef. We loved Sydney. A vibrant, friendly atmosphere. Everything works and runs to time. Efficient, beautiful shops, clean streets.
Our drivers were friendly and most informative.
The trip was fantastic. All the guides were amazing, especially the awesome crew!
Don't miss this tour! Great facilities, boat, crew, service. Snorkeling was wonderful - the highlight of the entire 4 week trip was seeing a 4 foot giant clam growing out of the reef (because I didn't believe they existed). One of our traveling companions is a certified diver, but preferred snorkeling to diving because of lighting conditions. Food was good, but line up early for best selection since it is first-come, first serve.
Great trip. Staff on the boat were excellent. They went out of their way to make sure everyone was having a good time and didn't miss out on anything. Would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of going to the reef.
An excellent trip very well-organised. Couldn't fault it in any respect.
Absolutely fabulous! Would highly recommend this trip to anyone! My favourite had to be the Great Barrier Reef Cruise, but going to Kuranda and then the beautiful calm beach of Cape Tribulation was wonderful too!!
Brilliant 3 day package!! Thanks Downunder Dive and Cruise.
We were taken to two sites. Both were excellent with the second being best. Saw many beautiful fish...including Nemo... crew was excellent. All in all this trip is highly recommended.
Perfect 3 days, got to see all the sites in the area.
I am not a good swimmer and made the decision not to snorkel even though the crew gave me a lot of encouragement. Jeff dove but felt that the trip was more for snorkelers than divers. That said, we had a great time. We were taken good care of by the crew (who even gave out sea sickness tablets to those that needed them!) The lunch was cooked fresh, and was really good with enough for everyone. Then "Elvis" a crew member sang reggae and other songs on the trip back. We really enjoyed the trip.
The Kuranda Railway was amazing. Everything from the platform to the train etc. is a must see journey. I do not like heights at all so it was a stretch for me to go on the sky rail. I would have preferred to come down again on the train but Jeff really enjoyed the sky rail and felt it was worth it. Cape Tribulation day the heavens opened and everyone got soaked probably within the first 5 minutes of the trip. That said, it really didn't matter as we just went with the flow. When we stopped at the Wild Life Park in Port Douglas I did not know that you could feed the Kangaroo's so when we walked through the park they would come up and tap our pockets for food. We felt so guilty as they are so cute. I would recommend having $2 AUD handy to buy the food on the way in. We went back 2 times after this trip just to feed the "roo's" One of the Mum's had a baby in her pouch. This to me was the highlight of my trip, just feeding the Kangaroo's!! At Cape Tribulation we saw some of the biggest spiders, as usual our tour guides explained and taught us so much about the eco system and the plant and animal life. I would definitely do this tour again, also the lunch at the Cape T was really good. All the tours turned up on time, everything went really smoothly from beginning to end, and we really relaxed and fun.
