BEST DAY EVER!! Billy Tea Rain Forest tour is the best kept secret in Australia. This was the last tour we did on the last day of our trip and it was far and above the BEST. Small, comfortable, attractive 4 wheel drive buses driven by excellent guides we LOVE Uncle Neville. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better it did. Morning stop for coffee, tea and biscuits before the river tour, walks in the rain forest, a swim in a forest pool, tropical fruit tasting with 'billy tea' prepared the traditional way over a camp fire, a walk on the beach, a ferry ride, a stop for ice cream and a beautiful drive there and back. OH...and did I mention the incredible lunch prepared for us on the grill by our guides while we fed and petted wallabies. We cannot say enough about this tour and the tour company. If you are in North Queensland it is well worth the time and money.

The intimate nature of this tour combined to the unique route the tour takes combine for a recommended experience. The buses are low-capacity and the guide was friendly. We took multiple photo opportunity stops and the food provided was good and provided opportunities to try new things.

A lovely day trip to Cape Tribulation. Start with the cruise tour, it is excited to find crocodiles hiding under the water and mangroves where they came in different sizes. The naturalist is good enough to brief the group with the life of crocodiles. Afterwards, it is forest broad walk into Cape Tribulation with another naturalist Cathy. It is very amazing to have her introducing the rainforest and wildlife inhabitants. She is v knowledgeable and has great passion for nature. It is also a v memorable experience to watch her imitating a bird calling in the wild and the bird called back (responding to her call). To Chinese, it is like nature and Cathy are united in one. Isn't is amazing!

This was an amazing day. I liked the variety of things to do and the guide really knew is stuff so we learnt a lot about the area we were visiting. Obviously seeing Cape Tribulation was the best bit but I also really enjoyed swimming in the creek and the delicious BBQ lunch.
