Daintree Adventure Day
- Duration: 10 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Port Douglas, QLD
- Product code: DAD
Come with us as we experience the oldest continuous rainforest on the planet from above and below!
An early start (7am) means we get to experience the Daintree Rainforest as it should be experienced, with almost no one else about. Crossing the Daintree Ferry we enter the Cape Tribulation section of the World Heritage listed Wet Tropics and deep into the heart of the Daintree Rainforest. First stop is the view over the Coral Sea from the fabulous Alexandra Range Lookout.
Sightings of Cassowary, Forest Dragons and even Buff Breasted Paradise Kingfishers is highly possible during the tour as we explore various rainforest boardwalks and beaches including Cape Tribulation, where in 1770 Captain Cook began having his ‘trials and tribulations’.
Then, those with an adventurous spirit begin a unique Jungle Surfing experience through the canopy of this remnant rainforest, zipping along above the forest floor. Those not Jungle Surfing will have a relaxed time exploring more of the Cape Tribulation area, maybe even sun tanning on the beach for a while.
Lunch is at Heritage Lodge restaurant in a beautiful rainforest environment. For dessert we head to Daintree Bio-Dynamic Ice-cream for a refreshing fruit ice-cream, also included.
Back to the Daintree River for a wildlife spotting cruise spotting crocs, snakes and Eagles while learning more about about this amazing part of Australia.
Finally, if conditions permit we will enjoy a stop to the upper Mossman river for a cooling dip in the healing waters. Our magical location here is well away from croc habitat so relax and enjoy a dip in the best water in the world.
A short trip back to Port Douglas and you are returned to your accommodation ready to await your next adventure.
