What You Can Expect
Swap the coach for a river boat and delve deeper into the rainforest on a 1-hour cruise down the Daintree River. Learn about the diverse habitats of the surrounding ancient ecosystem, and keep an eye out for exotic birds, tree snakes and estuarine crocodiles lounging on the riverbanks.
Continue on by coach through the mountainous rainforest of Alexandra Range, stopping at a lookout to soak up views that stretch all the way to the Coral Sea and Snapper Island. Next, stroll along a tropical creek and enjoy special access to a private rainforest property for a secluded lunch spot. Enjoy a traditional Aussie barbecue featuring grilled meats, fish or a vegetarian option served with fresh fruit and salads, topped off with specialty Daintree Tea.
In the afternoon, make your way to Cape Tribulation and stroll along a famous beach where the rainforest stretches all the way to the shores of the Coral Sea. Get a taste of indigenous culture with a visit to the Mossman Gorge Centre, where you’ll be treated to a heritage presentation by the native Kuku Yalanji people. Finally, explore the landscape and legends of this beautiful forested gorge on a guided nature walk.
The trip was very well organised, we saw a lot in one day without feeling too rushed. The food included was very good. We were picked up in Port Douglas but most of the coach occupants had been picked up at least an hour earlier in Cairns, a very long day for them but just right for us.

No shop stop ! Some nice food and BBQ, proactive guide, fast driving, we even succeeded in avoiding the rain that day, incredible. The stop in Cape Tribulation was maybe too short but we had plenty of time in Mossman Gorge. The coach is so comfy with its lorry chassis and leather seats. The cruise was enjoyable but I was a bit worry with the 'leaking' of the boat : at high speed, water entered the boat on the right hand side and we had no explanation, quite frightening in a crocodile river...
An excellent taster experience of Daintree and the cape! Magical places and a great, knowledgeable driver and tour guide in Daniel. Would definitely recommend to all wanting to explore the area - and then head back to Cape Tribluation to spend the whole day on that beautiful beach.
Excellent day out, great places to visit , good time levels out of the bus. Very good driver cum guide and really comfortable mini coach. Highly recommend this a tour to do if in cairns area.
Driver provided lots of interesting information. Weather didn't cooperate.
