Lets be clear, this trip is all about the wildlife. Paul has some very useful local knowledge, and tries his best to put you in a position to see the animals. To that end he drives you out of Cairns to the Tablelands, and then from location to location looking for birds/animals/trees/plants/insects of interest. I was in a group that was very into it, and it was very enjoyable bonding with these people. Food stop was more than adequate at pleasant village hotel. For the record we saw: platypus incredible ... we got very close!!, tree kangaroos, wallabies, possums 3 types, flying foxes, cane toads, white tailed rat, bearded dragon, brush turkey, huntsmans spider, fig tree. The after dark part is a treat. Totally safe. No issues with creepy crawlies or biting bugs. Most memorable tour on my month-long trip to Australia/New Zealand.
My family and I took this tour with Paul and I wasn't disappointed with respect to the wildlife. We spotted many wallabies, platypus, opossum, and three tree kangaroos. Dinner was pretty decent and we got the veg food we had opted for. Paul seems to know exactly where to look for animals and I am sure you will like the experience.
Paul does drive fast and the roads weren't kind to those of us seated behind in the van. My family and I were hit by waves of nausea while in the van. So, that bit, I wasn't too happy with. Everything else was just right.
Absolutely THE best trip to go on if you love wildlife and nature. Paul, the guide and owner of the company, is brilliant, has a wealth of knowledge and is passionate about what he does. He really, really made the experience very memorable. We saw animals and birds during the afternoon and evening that we didn't expect to see and as it is a small group tour it really is all the more special as you can share the experience with just a few like-minded people. We also experienced the Southern Hemisphere night sky in total darkness where you really can appreciate the night sky with its millions of stars and a very useful App!. A definite MUST DO excursion if you get the opportunity.

Once in a life time experience! My friend Joy and I both loved the experience. The tablelands rainforest is mysterious and full of life. Our guide Paul was very passionate and knowledgeable about the forest and the wild animals living there. We felt safe traveling in the pitch dark rainforest under his guide, and had fun seeing the tree kangaroos, possums, flying foxes got pooped by one on the face too...so wear hats and shut your mouth when you look up...-D fireflies and more! Because of the high altitude, there weren't mosquitoes bothering us either, which was a plus. Dinner was awesome too, would go with rare on the steak if ever going back the next time though. Thank you Paul!
This tour was amazing!
Amazing tour! Saw some really cool wildlife.
That was a really amazing day !!! Paul knows perfectly the area and the animals to see. We've seen so much all day long: platypus, wallabies, possums, etc. So much to dicover for a wildlife lover !!! I highly recommend this tour :.
Our guide Paul found many Australia animals and gave us knowledge about each one and plants/tee we can across. We saw a tree kangaroo, platypus, 3 different types of possums,leaf tail gecko, forest dragon, chameleon gecko, and bats flying above. We really enjoyed this tour and saw some amazing animals.

This was one of my highlights in this holiday. I did just book the same tour again for my next visit to Cairns. We saw a lot of nocturnal animals witch you cant spot on the mostly offered tours in daylight conditions. Even the sounds in the night are worth to visit the jungle after sunset. Strongly recommended!!

Take this tour if you want to see as much wildlife as possible. Paul has his ego involved in being able to show as many people a platypus as he can- which of course is a win-win situation. and we did see one! this really was quite a quest, and fun! We also saw three kinds of possum, a lot of spiders, a dragon, and a leaf lizard, and a tree kangaroo. We also saw ancient trees, including a couple of amazing fig trees. The drive up there is also beautiful. The place he takes you for dinner is a place you would choose as well, the food was great.
