Cape Tribulation Day Tour Activities:

Through our past 20 years of experience, our Cairns day tour company has combined the best activities available in the Daintree National Park into a cheap, fun, adventure packed day tour from Cairns.


Cairns to Port Douglas  – Great Barrier Reef Drive

The scenic drive to Port Douglas is an experience in itself, winding along the coastline, you will get an appreciation of the diverse environments here in Tropical North Queensland, Australia.


Port Douglas

Mossman Gorge National Park

A visit to the World Heritage listed rainforest environment of Mossman Gorge in Tropical North Queensland is a must during any time spent in Australia.

The Daintree River Ferry, 50km north of Port Douglas, is the only way to cross the river into the World Heritage Listed rainforests. It operates on a cable system and is capable of taking up to 16 vehicles across the river at a time. This is the only cable ferry operating in a World Heritage area in the world.


Alexandra Lookout - Daintree Rainforest National Park

A gorgeous view back over the Daintree Rainforest and the mouth of the Daintree River, and out across the Coral Sea you can see the inner reefs of the Great Barrier Reef.


Cape Tribulation Beach

Cape Tribulation's history starts 120 million years ago when the giant continent 'Gondwana' was covered in dense rainforests and dinosaurs roamed around the jungle.


Daintree River Cruise - Crocodile Express

The tour runs through the saltwater mangrove and rainforest habitat in the lower Daintree River or the freshwater pasture lands and rainforest upstream from the Daintree Village.
