Adventure Awaits

Your action-packed full day tour of Cape Tribulation awaits! Experience the stunning natural scenery of Far North Queensland as you journey up the coastline from Cairns, past Port Douglas, through the small township of Mossman heading towards the Daintree National Park. Throughout the tour, you will have the opportunity to meet the traditional owners of the land and swim at Mossman Gorge, partake in an informative wildlife river cruise to learn more about the Daintree's incredible ecosystem, visit Cape Tribulation beach and enjoy a 45 minute guided walk at the Marrdja boardwalk. If time permits, there are also plans to stop at Floravilla Ice Cream Factory and Alexandra Range Lookout.


Day 1 : Cape Tribulation Day Trip
Today's adventure begins with a scenic coastal drive to Mossman Gorge 'Wurrumbu'. Here you will be met by the traditional owners of the land you are about to explore and given the opportunity to participate in a traditional welcome to country and smoking ceremony with a Kuku Yalanji tribal member. We make a quick stop if you want to grab some breakfast before boarding our eco-friendly shuttle bus to journey deep into the heart of the gorge. While you're here, take a refreshing dip in the cascading water and majestic pools that make Mossman Gorge such an iconic place to visit. Next we jump aboard a wildlife river cruise to search for crocodiles and other wildlife while being informed about the fragile ecosystem of the Daintree River. Next up we are discovering where the rainforest meets the reef and taking a break for lunch on the famous Cape Tribulation Beach. After food and a bit of relaxation, we will be journeying deep into the world's oldest living rainforest for a guided walk around this World Heritage Listed site. On our way home, you are in for a treat if we decide to stop at Floravilla Ice Cream Factory. Good luck choosing from the 26 flavours available! One final marvel at the scenery courtesy of Alexandra Range Lookout and a drive through Port Douglas before we arrive back to Cairns around 7:30 pm.

Travelling solo, I decided to take the one day tour to the stunning Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation and it did not disappoint. Our tour guide Jordan was exceptional- a great host with lots of knowledge of the area and very warm and friendly. The day trip was 12 hours but broken up with lots of stops and exploring in a remarkable part of the world. Would use this tour company again for some of their other adventures.

I live in Sydney and my mum and dad and there friends are out visiting me and my fiancé. We went on this tour which was booked ages ago, I have to say it was amazing and even more amazing was our tour guide JJ. Very knowledgeable about the surroundings and just a great guy in general. Would 100% recommend this. The Essex contingent of this tour will go home with so much more knowledge
