What You Can Expect

Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation and Rainforest Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary Day Tour

Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation, Mossman Gorge and Rainforest Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary Day Tou

Honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988, Daintree National Park is a great destination for sampling the exceptional biodiversity of the Wet Tropics of Queensland. Your full-day adventure begins with pickup at your Cairns or Port Douglas hotel and a scenic drive north along the rugged Coral Sea coast.

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.

Amazing and educational! Andrew was our driver on this day trip and he did a great job. I learned a LOT about these places, learned small details that were fun! I even got a chance to eat a kangaroo steak! I was yummy! The time spent on the beach was short, but relaxing after the long day of adventure!

It was a rainy day, but nothing stopped us from enjoying the DaintreemRain Forest. It was so peaceful in the Mossman Gorge as we had the trail to ourselves. Saw incredible plants and birds. We especially enjoyed the Wildlife park as well as there were very few people and the wallabies were everywhere hoping to be fed by us. Seeing the giant Cassowaries up close was incredible. Stopped for a great lunch at Cape Tribulation and then did an hour long river cruise where our guide gave extensive knowledge about life on the river. We were just feet away from huge crocodiles and traveled into water passageways which were lush and dark. Really a wonderful tour. Thanks to Daniel our guide for a day to remember.

Really good day trip to the Daintree. Excellent guide/driver. Didn't see any crocodiles but the trip on the river was still fun. Gave us a great overview of the area so if we go back in the future we can explore further.

Amazing tour with such an inspiring guide, Eddie. The Rainforest and Cape Tribulation are such beautiful and unique places that you won't get to see anywhere else in the world. Unfortunately we couldn't spend much time in there because of the tight schedule but overall it definitely was an unforgettable experience.

We loved this trip! Our tour guide was Eddie and he was just amazing! He was so passionate about the area and the people. We enjoyed the variety during the day. We stopped first at the Wildlife park and were able to feed Kangaroos and Wallabies so sweet!. Then we went to Mossman Gorge and walked in the Rainforest. After that we carried onto Cape Tribulation and had a lovely lunch there with some time afterwards to wander on the beach. To end the day we went on a river cruise where we managed to see some crocodiles! I would thoroughly recommend this trip!

The tour and guide were great. The tour started late for me, I got to the wildlife habitat later than my fellow tourists. My guide gave me return ticket so I could go back before I left. The place is amazing. Mossman gorge and the Daintree are both pretty. The boat ride on Daintree river was fantastic.

Loved this tour, our guide Eddie was so knowledgeable about the area and the Aboriginal people!! This area is so beautiful reminds me of Hawaii. The wildlife sanctuary was fun with being able to interact with some of the animals. Enjoyed the trip on the Daintree River and getting to see some crocs along the river.
