What you can expect
Where the Great Barrier Reef fringes the Coral Coast, the Daintree Rainforest meets the shore. On this full-day tour, see why the combination of tropical forest, pristine white-sand beaches and luminous, life-filled waters have earned this region World Heritage status.
Head north along the Captain Cook Highway to the Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Site. At your first stop, the Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas, walk along elevated boardwalks as you see the flora, fauna and characteristics of the area's 3 primary ecosystems – rainforests, wetlands and grasslands. Enjoy morning tea before you continue to Daintree National Park.
A quick ferry ride shuttles you across the Daintree River to the northern section of the park and Cape Tribulation. Birdsong and jungle sounds surround you as you enjoy a fresh, flavourful lunch.
Next, on the picture-perfect Cape Tribulation beach, stroll along the shore with the sand between your toes or stick to the boardwalk as you explore the headlands. At the Alexandra Lookout, take in sweeping vistas over the Daintree River and Coral Sea. The final leg of your adventure is a boat ride along the Daintree River. Float through the mangroves and watch for movement in the swampy waters. You might spot a powerful python or the swishing, scaly tail of a crocodile.
