Full description
Start your adventure with a scenic coastal drive from Cairns to Port Douglas - the far north’s very own great ocean road with panoramic views of the sparkling Coral Sea. The first stop is Mossman Gorge, which is in the southern sector of the world famous Daintree National Park. The gorge has been carved out by the cold mountain waters of the Mossman River, which winds through large granite boulders, bordered by lush green rainforest. It’s a magical place and you’ll be welcomed by the traditional owners, the Kuku Yalanji people, who will also cleanse you of evil spirits during a smoke ceremony. Also, enjoy a refreshing swim in the cascading waters. Cross the mighty Daintree River and head to the beach for lunch. Experience waterfront dining and enjoy the sand between your toes. After lunch, it’s time to explore the ancient rainforest environment on an interesting guided tour of the Marrdja Botanical Boardwalk. Highly trained guides will give expert rainforest interpretation, which will inform and impress. Be amazed at the huge diversity you will encounter, you will discover everything from low lying ferns and shrubs, to the massive rainforest canopy and even mangrove ecosystems - all in one short easy walk. You can choose to taste locally made ice-cream, at your own cost, and prepare for a photo opportunity at the Alexandra Range Lookout, which provides sweeping views over the Daintree River, its rainforest delta and out to the Coral Sea. In the afternoon, experience a wildlife cruise on the river. During the cruise, you may see a crocodile, while learning about the fragile ecosystem of this impressive serpent-like river system. On the return journey to Cairns, drive through Port Douglas, a picturesque beachside village with a laid-back vibe and loads of bars and cafes.

It is a long day but well worth it. The scenery was amazing to see the lower and upper rainforest of the Daintree, the oldest rainforest on earth. Even saw a baby croc, 1.5m female and 4m male croc on the river cruise. I am glad to have done this and having things pointed out to you which when doing yourself you miss a lot without the local knowledge.

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We were able to see several things on our tour. We saw crocodiles and even a Cassowary and its chicks. Quite an experience to see so many beautiful things in nature. Loved swimming in Mossman Gorge. JJ, our tour guide, was great and very knowledgeable. He also took some great pictures for us to remember our trip.

The tour was flawless. Thomas, the guide, was super helpful on the day as we couldn't get our meal options registered online. The information and local knowledge presented by Thomas gave context and perspective to the beauty that is Mossman, Daintree and Cape Tribulation. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time and the tour, we will be recommending this to our friends and family!
