Tour Cape Tribulation & the Daintree Rainforest by 4WD on a personalised tour! The morning of the tour, your naturalist guide will meet you at your accommodation and after introductions all around will drive you north along the scenic coastal route to Mossman. Lush farmland contrasts with seascape as the tour approaches the majestic Daintree River. There is time for a short morning tea break then its 'all aboard' for an informative river cruise. Relax and enjoy the splendour only a Daintree River tour can offer as you learn of estuarine crocodiles, mangrove forests, 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 the 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 form the bar. Then there is even more. Enjoy the scenery as you travel along the 4WD Bloomfield Track to pristine Emmagen Creek and 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 complimentary glass of white wine and a cup of Billy Tea, all of which enhance the tranquil surroundings.
At Cape Tribulation Beach there is a little time to swim in the Coral Sea (seasonal) or stroll along the beach and boardwalk to the photographers' platform overlooking the mountaains and coast where the 'Rainforest meets the Reef". After a short afternoon refreshment stop, cross the Daintree River by cable ferry and begin our homeward journey somewhat wiser for our 'Total Rainforest Experience' in the Daintree Rainforest & Cape Tribulation!
