This is a great budget tour in a small bus carrying up to 24 passengers. You will be collected from your accommodation in either Cairns or Port Douglas and first stop is to have a light morning tea at the Daintree River. It is here you will do a one (1) hour wildlife river cruise ideally seeing crocodiles living in their natural environment. After the cruise your group will cross over on the river ferry to get into the heart of the Daintree and as far as Cape Tribulation Beach.

In this region your guide will complete a will given expert rainforest interpretation during a 45 minute guided walk at the Marrdja boardwalk. 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.

Then on to the infamous Cape Tribulation beach where the rainforest ‘truly' meets the reef. Lunch is served on the beach at Cape Trib Beach House and if everyone wants to the driver will stop at one of the local Ice Cream Companies for you to taste and purchase your own ice cream.  

There is a great photo opportunity at the Alexandra Range Lookout and after crossing back over on the ferry the next stop is Mossman Gorge. At the gorge you will experience a unique indigenous smoking welcome ceremony and are free to walk or swim the gorge. Afternoon tea is at your own expense on this tour and the return journey includes a scenic drive through the township of Port Douglas then back into Cairns approximately 7pm.
