What You Can Expect
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.
This tour was great. Got to see all the things you want to see plus had a great tour guide
Thoroughly enjoyed it. A great way to nitrogen detox from scuba for a day before flying on to Perth.
Very good driver/guide helped to make this an excellent day - though the land itself was fascinating. Well planned day, with stops at a good wildlife centre, then a walk at the gorge, a lovely location near the beach for lunch, then the excellent river trip to see crocodiles and a lot of baby crocs.
Was really a Perfect, Great, Excellent day.
I will never forget this trip, my wife and daughters had a great and happy time.
In spite of very wet weather and a change of itinerary due to long queues at the lagoon our guide did a superb job and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
Great way to see the animals and scenery of the Daintree. The wildlife sanctuary was a highlight, would have loved to spend a bit more time here. The crocodile cruise was excellent, guide was very informative and we were able to see 3 crocodiles. The scenic parts of the tour were brief but provided enough time to get a sense of the area. I appreciated how we were one of the few groups in the areas at the time, it never felt too crowded. Our driver / guide Russell was excellent, he had a good sense of humour while also keeping the group well on schedule. Make sure you eat breakfast before the tour, it is awhile until the lunch break.
Nice tour and definitely a must do when you are in the north-east of Australia. You see a lot of beautiful places and the tour guide knows a lot of information.
This was a fantastic tour. Daniel was fun and well organized. He took the needs of the guests and made it happen. It was a very long tour but it never was dull.
Our tour guide was fabulous. He was very informative and really looked after us. This was a great day out seeing Mossman gorge, wildlife park which was excellent and cape tribulation which was absolutely stunning . Unfortunately we didn't see any crocs but it was a lovely boat ride down the river. Would highly recommend this tour. Oh and of course lunch was delicious we had the Barra.
We had a great time and saw so many different areas on this trip. The weather was perfect and we loved the stop at the Sanctuary where we spent a lot of time hand feeding the kangaroos and wallabies.
