Full description

Discover the rich diversity of the Daintree Rainforest through various national park walks on a guided tour from Port Douglas. Travel in a modern, comfortable, and spacious vehicle that offers great visibility. Visit Mossman Gorge and enjoy a river cruise.

Be picked up and dropped off at select hotels in Port Douglas. Relax on the drive to the Daintree Rainforest which contains 30% of the frog, marsupial, and reptile species in Australia.

Walk through the Mossman Gorge, an ancient rainforest, to see the crystal clear waters of the Mossman River flow over giant boulders. Rainforest boardwalks guide you through this pristine rainforest to uncover its incredible diversity.

Stop at stunning beaches and learn about Captain Cook’s journey along the coast of Queensland. Go for a walk along the beach where the rainforest meets the reef. Cruise on Cooper Creek where you can spot estuarine crocodiles on the banks of this mangrove-lined creek.

Have lunch at the Heritage Lodge, which is a hidden rainforest resort. At the Daintree Ice Cream Company, taste four delicious scoops of tropical fruit ice cream in a cup. Relax and enjoy your ice cream in a tropical garden and fruit orchard.

We had a fantastic day with our guide Ben. The whole day ran completely seamlessly between the different activities and delicious food in between. Ben was really friendly, engaging and welcoming ensuring that all of us in the group felt comfortable. Additionally, he was like a walking encyclopaedia with his interesting knowledge about the area bringing the Daintree to life. Honestly could not recommend this tour or Ben more highly!! A huge thanks to Ben and the team!!

Our guide, Ben, was extremely knowledgeable about the native wildlife and agricultural activities nearby, as well as the history of the rainforest and human development. The tour had the perfect balance of immersion into wildlife with short walks on the beach and in the rainforest with a nice ACd van to return to.

Our Daintree Forest Tour was a wonderful experience. the tour was extremely well designed to give the visitor a strong and lasting sense of this extraordinary place of ancient forest and tranquil, remote waterways. Notwithstanding the large number of visitors to this world heritage site, the tour enabled us to be in quiet spaces for many wonderful hours, and to have a unique experience of the majesty, complexity and diversity of this remarkable place. Well never forget the feeling of being amid ancient places, relatively untouched by modern life. It is a testament to the devoted people who manage to keep it that way for us, and for future generations. And we cannot speak highly enough of Ben, our guide. He was charming, extremely capable, and left no stone unturned when it came to our comfort. (For morning tea at Cape Tribulation he had gone to the trouble of providing plunger coffee, instead of instant!) It's only a small thing, but is emblematic of his attention to every detail.
