Daintree Afternoon

Very few visitors to the area
have the opportunity to visit the ‘Oldest continually growing rainforest in the
world’ at night!”
Tour not recommended for children under 14
Starting in
the mid afternoon when the sun is highest in the sky, experience the magical
views of the Great Barrier Reef Drive,
perhaps the region’s most scenic coastal highway. Observe the changes in
habitat diversity as we venture north to the Daintree Tropical Rainforest

the beautiful Daintree River spotting wildlife on a quiet, clean

prior departure

Arrive at
Cape Tribulation, a World Heritage area with pristine beaches, rainforest, cool
streams, towering mountains and freshwater valleys that captivate our visitors.
We often spend an hour exploring the natural assets of the coastline

Dining in
the evening Rainforest is an experience not to miss! The delicious range of
cuisine on offer at Whet Restaurant is sure to make your visit to the Daintree

A wildlife
tour in Far North Queensland is not complete without a night walk. Much of the
local wildlife has adopted a nocturnal lifestyle to avoid to heat of the day in
the tropical climate. Perhaps the most unique part of this experience is to
observe nocturnal wildlife in the Wet Tropics.

Time to sit
back, relax and watch the back of your eyelids in the comfort of our modern
vehicles. Return across the Daintree River on the Cable Ferry and we’re back in
civilization so you can look through and share your photos

Returning to
Cairns approximately 10:30pm
