Duration: 2 nights side trip tour
Price from: £369
Day 1 Cairns/Cape Tribulation: Your adventure begins with a scenic coastal drive early this morning from Cairns. There’s a stop at Mossman Gorge, which is in the southern sector of Daintree National Park. It’s a magical place and you’ll participate in a “Welcome to Country” with the traditional owners, the Kuku Yalanji people. There is also an opportunity to enjoy a refreshing swim in the cascading waters. Continue the journey north crossing the mighty Daintree River and head to your lodge in Cape Tribulation. This afternoon, get harnessed up and fly with the birds on a zipline through the rainforest canopy on an exciting Jungle Surfing Adventure.
Day 2 Cape Tribulation: The fun continues this morning with an Ocean Safari reef trip, which gives you the opportunity to snorkel and explore Undine and Mackay Reefs in the Great Barrier Reef. This afternoon, it’s time to explore this ancient rainforest on an interesting guided tour of the Marrdja Botanical Boardwalk. Prepare to be amazed at the huge diversity you will encounter, everything from low lying ferns and shrubs, to the massive rainforest canopy and even mangrove eco-systems all in one short easy walk.
Day 3 Cape Tribulation/Cairns: After time at leisure you will head out onto the river for a wildlife cruise where, if you’re lucky, you may get to see crocodiles, whilst learning about the fragile yet impressive serpent-like river system. Then it’s back to the bus for the return journey to Cairns, including a quick drive through Port Douglas, a picturesque beachside village with a laid-back vibe and loads of bars and cafés.
