About
With a naturalist guide in the lead, explore Cape Tribulation, Daintree Rainforest, and Mossman Gorge. Listening to commentary about the UNESCO World Heritage Sites highlights allows you to learn much more about the unique ecosystem, history, and culture than you would by simply exploring on your own. Additionally, round-trip transportation from Cairns allows you to focus on the scenery on the journey down the picturesque Captain Cook Highway.

  • Morning tea and lunch inclusion lets passengers travel light
What to expect
After a stress-free pickup at your Cairns hotel, settle in for the ride along Captain Cook Highway, recognized as one of the world’s most scenic drives. Listen to in-depth commentary on the area from a naturalist or Eco/World Heritage-accredited guide, as you enjoy the scenery of centuries-old melaleuca trees and the Haycock and Double islands. Stop at the Rex Lookout for views and photo ops over Trinity Beach before a brief tour of Port Douglas. Continue to Mossman Gorge, where you’ll be refreshed with tea at the Mossman Gorge Centre. Then take a walk in the rain forest along the Mossman River, stopping for a refreshing swim, if time allows. Afterward, head to the sugar cane fields of North Queensland and grab lunch at the historic Daintree Tea House before embarking on a Daintree River cruise. Next up is Cape Tribulation, stopping at the Mount Alexandra Lookout on the way to the Marrdja Boardwalk, where you’ll take a guided walk in one of the most biodiverse areas of the rain forest. Spend some time at Cape Tribulation Beach and then at the Daintree Ice Cream Company for afternoon tea (own expense) before heading back to Cairns.

We loved this tour. Discover tours made seeing this incredible part of the world so easy. Our tour guide Steve was amazing and his knowledge of this ancient world was incredible. The bus was comfortable and Steve ensured that we had plenty of stops. The tour was diverse giving us a fabulous overview of the history. Lunch was provided at the Daintree Teahouse restaurant and it was a perfect match to the tour. We were spoilt on our Daintree river cruise by seeing a number of large and baby crocodiles. This tour is highly recommended.

Enjoyed our very long but informative tour.

Very knowledgeable driver, who kept us abreast of what was happing around us.

My only complaint would be whilst enjoyable, the Barramundi definitely lacked flavour and was not the best I have eaten

Thank you very much for your kind words and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your day. Our lunch at The Daintree Tea House is always very popular and Solar Whisper offers an excellent way to see wildlife as part of your day. We are glad that you were able to appreciate the benefits of taking a guided tour with our accredited Naturalist guides - the only way to "experience" the real Daintree.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our small group tours help you to appreciate the rainforest without the crowds and a guided tour really does help you appreciate all that our region has to offer including our wild and beautiful cassowaries and crocodiles. Thank you for traveling with us.

The day was overcast with a little rain from time to time, and we had 12 other lovely people on our trip. Jim, our driver/tour guide, was brilliant throughout the long (12 hour) journey!
On our Daintree cruise we were lucky enough to see Scarface, the old Daintree River croc, sidling up to one of his many female friends on the river bank. Sbe put on quite a performance for us.

Although the daintree was very nice the tour didn't flow very well and there was not enough time exploring the rainforest. Warick our tour guide was driving too fast and fixating on plants, even stopping the bus to show us them... We came from Cairns and felt the pickup and drop off of people from Port Douglas wasted alot of time, also the morning tea was unneccassary. The lunch was great and the croc tour was amazing but in all the whole day was a drag and took too long driving from place to place. The windows on the bus were tinted so by the end of the day it was hard to see anything. Get a car and drive up yourself.

Absolutely BRILLIANT!!! My daughter and I simply LOVED the entire tour, and Steve is a natural at what he does as a tour guide: he is highly informative about flora, fauna and the historical backgrounds of areas, he is funny, he is communicative in the best possible way (i.e next bathroom breaks/when we will eat etc)! We were always aware of what was upcoming, the background and wonderful things to look out for! I'd give it an 11/10 score! Superb!!!! Felt like a perfect and well balanced package: many incredible sights, great comfortable vehicle with a small group of just 9 passengers (takes up to 11), the food was truly awesome in every way and we got to experience a wonderful introduction to discover new varieties of foods available which we have never had the privilege to enjoy before! It was safe, fun, relaxing, interesting and is highly recommended!!!! Fantastic photo opportunities all through!!! Everything according to a well paced, relaxed timing schedule!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It's always lovely to hear how much you enjoyed our full day Cape Tribulation day tour. I'm glad that Steve made you feel so welcome and was able to help you to experience this area with plenty of time at each of our attractions. Our day is as much about the people as it about the area we visit and our guides do go above and beyond because they love it as much as you will. I will pass on your fabulous feedback to Steve. Thank you for traveling with us.

Our tour left at 7am and returned to Cairns just before 7pm. Our Guide was Steve.
I went on this tour with my 77 year old Mother and it was suitable for her with minimum fitness.
We thoughly enjoyed our entire trip and found it excellent value for everything that is included.
The scenery was breathtaking and our guide Steve was very knowledgeable and polite.
It is certainly a busy schedule but this is to be expected when you travel such a vast distance and fit in so many sights.
Morning Tea of damper, cream, jam and coffee was delicious at Mossman Gorge as was lunch at the Daintree. Yes it is a full day but I would recommend it if you want to see lots of things in a short amount of time.
Thanks Steve.
