You will get picked up from your accommodation in Port Douglas by your personal guide for the day. If you are driving up from Cairns we will meet you at the Wildlife Habitat Carpark. Start the day at Mossman Gorge National Park, which is the southern part of the Daintree Rainforest. Your guide will share their knowledge of the local flora and fauna with you and answer any questions you may have. This is an easy 500m return walk mostly along boardwalks. Enjoy a delicious Morning Tea at the Mossman Gorge Visitors Centre. Your choice of plunger coffee or Daintree Tea with a traditional damper served with jam, honey and cream. Next, head along the Captain Cook Hwy through the township of Mossman and past the cane fields up to the mighty Daintree River. At the Daintree River you will embark on a scenic Wildlife Cruise searching for snakes, beautiful birds and of course the mighty saltwater crocodiles. You will enjoy a guided walk along a stunning Daintree Boardwalk. With an abundance of flora and fauna to discover, you will get a real understanding of how the Daintree Rainforest lives. This is an easy 600m return boardwalk. For lunch we head to the On The Turps Restaurant located at the Heritage Lodge. Enjoy a delicious cooked to order lunch in this open air restaurant nestled in the rainforest along the Cooper Creek. After lunch you are invited to enjoy a refreshing swim in Cooper Creek. This beautiful rainforest creek is easy to access via a path from the restaurant and free of crocodiles. Relax and enjoy the tranquillity. It’s now time to head towards Cape Tribulation, the area famous for the saying where the “Rainforest meets the Reef.” You have time for a walk along the beach, an area steeped in history that is explained by your knowledgeable tour guide. On the way back to the Daintree River we stop for Ice Cream flavoured with locally grown tropical fruits. A real treat while on holiday! And a stop at the Alexandra Lookout to take in the beautiful views of the Rainforest and a stunning vista that extends past Cairns in the distance. We make our way across the Daintree River onboard the famous Daintree Ferry and enjoy the beautiful views up and down the river. With the afternoon sun lighting up the hills on the way home, creating the most stunning views, this is your last opportunity to ask your guide any burning questions about the Daintree Rainforest and local area. After a full day of discovering the Daintree Rainforest we will drop you off at your accommodation or car.
