Wat is inbegrepen?
Commence the adventure with a scenic coastal drive from Cairns to Port Douglas. This is the far north’s very own great ocean road and provides panoramic views over the sparkling Coral Sea. Heading north our first stop is at Mossman Gorge, which is in the southern sector of the world famous Daintree National Park. This gorge has been carved out by the cold mountain waters of the Mossman River, which winds through large granite boulders, bordered by lush green rainforest. It’s a magical place and you’ll participate in a “Welcome to Country” with the traditional owners, the Kuku Yalanji people, who will also cleanse you of evil spirits with a smoke ceremony. Following this there’s an opportunity for you to enjoy a refreshing swim in the cascading waters (weather permitting) or enjoy a rainforest walk.
Next we stop for the Wildlife Cruise. (Not included on the Budget Tour however you can upgrade on the day if you change your mind) before crossing the river and heading to Cape Tribulation for lunch. Enjoy lunch at Turtle Rock Cafe located only 400m from the beach, before exploring this region on foot with a guided tour of the ancient rainforest environment along the Marrdja Botanical Boardwalk. Our highly trained guides will give you expert rainforest interpretation, which will inform and impress.
Be amazed at the huge diversity you will encounter, everything from low lying ferns and shrubs, to the massive rainforest canopy and even mangrove ecosystems all in one short easy walk. Next stop is the Daintree Ice Cream Co where you have the option to enjoy one of their delicious organically grown ice-creams with an exotic range of tropical flavours available including dragonfruit, coconut, black sapote, lychee and many more. Yum! [At own cost.]
We stop for a photo opportunity at the Alexandra Range Lookout (Walu Wugirriga), which provides sweeping views over the Daintree River, its rainforest delta and out to the Coral Sea - pop this on your Insta profile!
Then it’s back on 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 cafes.
