Full description
Experience the diverse beauty of Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation, and Mossman Gorge on 2 day trips from Cairns. Day 1: Learn the Aboriginal history of Babinda Boulders in the Atherton Tablelands, and go for a swim in the crystal clear waters of Josephine Falls. Slide down a waterfall on a natural rockslide before visiting Millaa Millaa Falls. Enjoy lunch at a Australia’s largest timber pub before a bush walk and time to swim behind a waterfall. Gaze into a volcanic crater and look for wild cassowary in their natural habitat. See the Curtain Fig Tree before heading to Lake Eacham, a dormant volcanic crater lake full of turtles. Watch the sunset before the drive back to Cairns. Day 2: Take a scenic coastal drive towards the Mossman Gorge and enjoy panoramic views of the Coral Sea along the way. Get a warm welcome from the local Aborigines on arrival, and then cross the Daintree River for lunch at a beach. Explore the ancient rainforest on a guided tour of Marrdja Botanical Boardwalk and learn more about the flora and fauna, from low-lying ferns and shrubs to the massive canopy and mangroves. Taste some locally made ice cream, and enjoy a wildlife cruise to look for crocodiles before the return trip to Cairns via Port Douglas.

I found it a little confusing after I made the booking as you refer to the two day experience as Atherton Tablelands, Mossman Gorge and Daintree Tour however the tour company referred to the trips as 'Waterfall Wanderers' and 'Cape Tribulation' When I had to register my details with the tour company it would have been more straight forward and easier if the tours were called the same name. I am going to Darwin next month and have looked on line for day trips and your website came up, but I will not use it. I'll book directly with a Darwin tour company.
