On this full day Daintree Rainforest tour from Port Douglas, you will explore all the Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation region has to offer, including a 4WD ride along the rugged Bloomfield Track!
Your naturalist guide will meet you at your accommodation and after introductions all round you’ll drive north along the scenic route via Mossman to Cape Tribulation. Lush farmland contrasts with seascape as you approach the majestic Daintree River. Time for a short morning tea break then it’s ‘all aboard’ for an informative river cruise. Relax and enjoy the splendor 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 World Heritage Tropical Rainforest merging with the azure colors 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.
You will have a lunch stop at a local cafe in the Daintree Rainforest region. Next go beyond Cape Tribulation along the 4WD Bloomfield Track to pristine Emmagen Creek with 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 and a cup of traditional 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 mountains and coast where the ‘Rainforest meets the Reef’. After a short afternoon refreshment stop, cross the Daintree River by cable ferry and begin your homeward journey somewhat wiser for your ‘Total Rainforest Experience’.
