Cairns is the gateway to Tropical North Queensland. Get set for all that Cairns can throw your way. This tropical city is bustling with nightlife, restaurants, shopping and great places to stay. The majority of day tours depart from Cairns making it an ideal base to explore the best that Tropical North Queensland has to offer. White water rafting, ballooning, diving, reef cruises and rainforest tours are just a few of the wide range of activities accessible when staying in Cairns.
Your naturalist guide will meet you at your accommodation and after introductions, drive north along the scenic route to Mossman. Lush farmland contrasts with seascape as you approach the majestic Daintree River. Time for a short morning tea break then its 'all aboard' for an informative river cruise. Relax and enjoy the splendour only the Daintree can offer as you learn of Estuarine Crocodiles, mangrove forests and wildlife. This is nature at its best!
Ascend the Alexandra Range and pause for a panoramic view of the World Heritage Tropical Rainforest merging with the azure colours of the Coral Sea. Experience the rainforest intimately on an elevated National Park Boardwalk. Accurate interpretations of flora and fauna will be given with ample time for photographs and questions as you search for the elusive, rare and totally unique Southern Cassowary and other wildlife species within this particular habitat. A delicious barbecue lunch with freshly prepared salads is served while you have the opportunity to hand feed a kangaroo and enjoy a cold drink from the bar.
Travel beyond Cape Tribulation along the 4WD Bloomfield Track to pristine Emmagen Creek and take time for a refreshing rainforest stream swim. Seek fish and turtles in the creek, butterflies and exotic birds in the trees and indulge in a feast of tropical fruit, a cup of traditional Billy Tea and Damper. At Cape Tribulation Beach there is time to swim in the Coral Sea (seasonal) or stroll along the beach and boardwalk to the photographers' platform overlooking the mountains and coast where the 'Rainforest meets the Reef'. Cross the Daintree River by cable ferry and begin your homeward journey somewhat wiser for your 'Total Rainforest Experience'.
