What to Expect

Tick off all of Tropical North Queensland's natural highlights, including the Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation, Mossman Gorge and Port Douglas, on this full-day premium tour. See lush tropical rainforest, cascading rivers and the iconic Cape Tribulation beach, the only place on earth where two natural World Heritage-listed sites – the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforest – exist side by side. 


The adventure starts with pick-ups from selected hotels in Cairns, the northern beaches and Port Douglas. Guests travelling from Cairns and the Northern beaches will journey along the scenic Great Barrier Reef Drive, stopping to admire the views of the Coral Sea from Rex Lookout


On arrival in Port Douglas, you'll collect any additional guests before stopping at Flagstaff Hill, which overlooks 4 Mile Beach. It makes for a great photo opportunity.


Moving away from the coast, the next stop is Mossman Gorge, where you'll refresh with local tea, coffee or a cold drink before exploring this secluded gorge and rainforest paradise. Mossman River's cool, clear waters tumble through and over giant granite boulders. Take a guided walk and enjoy the opportunity for a swim.


You'll then enjoy a quality restaurant lunch, with a choice of meals available, before stepping aboard a solar-powered electric boat to take a 1 hr cruise on the Daintree River. Keep your eyes peeled for crocodiles and other local wildlife.


Driving on to the Daintree River Cable Crossing, it’s a short ride over and into the ancient Daintree Rainforest. Alexandra Lookout provides panoramic views over the Daintree delta, river, and the Coral Sea, so don't forget your camera! 


You'll then wander beneath the ancient rainforest trees on a guided botanical walk, learning more about the biodiversity of the fantastic ecosystem.


Finally, the most northern point of your adventure is Cape Tribulation, where the rainforest meets the reef. Take it all in from the Kulki Lookout


Heading back south, you'll stop in at the Daintree Ice-Cream Company, where you can purchase locally made tropical ice cream (own expense). The tour returns to Port Douglas around 5:30 pm and Cairns around 6:30 pm.

The operator also has the right to substitute vehicles or an alternative operator, transport, and carrier. The tour operator can also charge at any a “fuel levy” if it there is a dramatic increase in the price of fuel - we would be very reluctant to impose such a charge and would only do so under extreme circumstances.

    DTA are not responsible for any loss, damage, injury or death caused to a passenger by another passenger.

    Itineraries are correct at time of publication; however slight differences may occur as we endeavor to improve our tour throughout the year. No refund is given for altered Itineraries however, we do so with your tour satisfaction as our number one goal.
