Personalisation - Our groups are small, amplifying the quality of our nature and wildlife interaction.

Eco-friendly -
We cruise with a solar electric boat operator. The vessel is quiet and a completely clean and green machine. Perfect for wildlife spotting!

Afternoon advantages - We are heading IN to the National Park when other operators are heading OUT! Our late finish affords us peaceful trails and empty beaches. Observe what we casually call, the ‘shift swap'. Animals that are active during the day become more excitable at dusk, right as the nocturnal creatures come out to play!

Nocturnal component - Very few visitors to the area have the option to go into the "Oldest continually growing rainforest in the world, at night!"

WE SUPPLY • Umbrellas • On board library • Vehicle Binoculars • Torches (spotlights) for evening walk • Afternoon tea and dinner



12:00pm - Pickup in Cairns Experience the magical Great Barrier Reef Drive heading north on the region's most scenic coastal highway. Observe the changes in habitat diversity as we get closer to the Daintree Tropical Rainforest.

2:15pm - Arrive at Solar Whisper Wildlife Cruise Cruise the beautiful Daintree River spotting wildlife on a quiet, clean solar electric boat with zero environmental impact. Get closer to nature... hear, smell & experience without noise & fumes. Afternoon tea included prior departure. We have a 99% success rate for spotting crocodiles, excellent bird watching opportunities and other wildlife such as snakes, frogs and fish and bats. The cruise is one hour.

4:00pm - Daintree Rainforest Every nature lover's dream can be found in the Daintree National Park. Enter the lands of the local Kuku Yalanji people while taking in the beauty of the pristine rainforest, cool streams, towering mountains and freshwater valleys that captivate our visitors. This living museum is an area of ancient tropical rainforest spanning 120,000 hectares, making it the largest tropical rainforest in Australia. We walk numerous tracks to witness the complex ecosystems in this World Heritage Area and perhaps a swim during the summer months.

5:00pm - Cape Tribulation Beach This famous valley resembles a giant amphitheatre with a semicircle of hills dominated by Mt Sorrow (850m) and Mt Hemmant (1000m). From several lookouts the afternoon lighting on the beach is gorgeous. We often spend an hour exploring the natural assets of the coastline.
6:00pm - Dinner at Whet Restaurant Whet combines the natural wonder of the surrounding jungle with its unique and casual atmosphere. Located right in the heart of Cape Tribulation, and aptly named to "whet your appetite", the delicious range of cuisine on offer at Whet Restaurant is sure to make your visit to the Daintree memorable.

7:00pm - Night spotting in the Northern Daintree A wildlife tour in Far North Queensland is not complete without a night walk. Much of the local wildlife has adopted a nocturnal lifestyle to avoid to heat of the day in the tropical climate. Perhaps the most unique part of this experience is to observe nocturnal wildlife in the Wet Tropics.
