Your day begins with morning pickup from your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation.
Your first stop, Paronella Park, is situated about 75 miles (120km) to the south of Cairns on the banks of Mena Creek near Innisfail. The beautiful buildings are surrounded by lush heritage gardens and acres of Australian rainforest. Learn the history of the Spanish couple that built their dream estate there in the 1930s, and visit the Spanish Castle ruins. Have free time to explore this ethereal landscape on your own before heading into town.
Have a choice of five dishes for your lunch at the Mena Creek Hotel, which includes a glass of beer, wine or soft drink. Afterward, continue about 20 minutes further along the Palmerston Highway to Mamu Tropical Skywalk. There you can enjoy a 45-minute self-guided audio tour that takes you along more than a half mile (1 km) of elevated boardwalk tracks that wind through the rainforest. The tracks connect to a sturdy elevated walkway that climbs up through the tree canopy to an observation tower.
Travel in an air-conditioned vehicle with a small group that has a maximum of 10 participants, ensuring a more intimate experience. Your tour includes entry fees, lunch, and hotel pickup and drop-off.
