Cape Tribulation and Daintree Wilderness

This Cape Tribulation and Daintree tour will take you to the only place in the world where two UNESCO World Heritage sites meet. The Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest within the Wet Tropics of Queensland. This is the only place in the world where you can see where the Rainforest meets the Reef.

To begin with, cruise along the coast and take in the sights along the Great Barrier Reef Drive. This has been voted as one of Australia’s most iconic coastal drives. Not only do you have luscious rainforest lining the drive, but also stunning beaches and ocean views on the other side! This scenic drive will lead you to Port Douglas, where we will stop in at the award-winning Wildlife Habitat.

Meet the local Wildlife

Discover the local animals on an interactive guided tour led by one of our expert Wildlife Keepers. You will get the opportunity to hand feed creatures such as the endangered Cassowary, which is really difficult to locate in the wild! You can also be a Wildlife Keeper for the morning with this one-of-a-kind experience available only on your trip. To capture the event, you may also purchase a picture with an iconic koala.

As soon as we have gotten our fill of furry friends, it will be time to continue our journey north.

Explore the Oldest living Rainforest

Cross the Daintree River on the cable ferry to continue our journey north into Cape Tribulation to see the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest. Sooner or later we will reach a freshwater swimming hole, where you can go for a quick swim and cool down.

Join our expert local guide, so that you can explore the world’s oldest rainforest. On a boardwalk trip tailored to your group’s interests, learn about unique plants as well as the creatures that make the Daintree Rainforest home.

Where two World Heritage sites meet

Explore Cape Tribulation Beach to see where the Rainforest meets the Reef. In fact, this is the only place in the world where you can find two world heritage sites converging. World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics Rainforest as well as the Great Barrier Reef.

On our way home to Cairns, we will stop in at the Daintree Ice Cream Company. After your huge day of exploring this is certainly the best way to top off your day! In fact, the ice cream is made from locally grown fruits, something you won’t find anywhere else! You will certainly see why this ice cream has received many awards!

If you’re looking for a great photo op with a backdrop of the Daintree Rainforest and the Coral Sea, Alexandra Lookout is certainly the ideal spot!

Cruise the Daintree River and keep your eyes peeled for wild Estuarine crocodiles. After all, this river is famous for them! With this in mind, your guide will even try to get them to jump up out of the water so you can see their size. But it’s not all about the crocodiles. Take a look around the area’s distinct mangroves in the hope that you can spot more of the native wildlife. By all means, there are many species of birds and snakes that call the mangroves home.
