Overview
Cairns is the gateway to Queensland’s Far North, with access to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Wet Tropics and the Great Barrier Reef. This 3-day combo tour checks all the boxes with three top-selling day trips—ride the Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail, explore Daintree National Park and Cape Tribulation, and enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving along the Great Barrier Reef.
Highlights
  • Save money with a combo tour of three top-selling day trips
  • Spectacular scenery in the Barron Gorge and Daintree national parks
  • Snorkel and scuba dive at the Great Barrier Reef
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and round-trip transport from Cairns
What to Expect
Your combo tour includes three separate full-day tours, all including hotel pickup and transfers from Cairns or the Northern Beaches, depending on tour option selected. (Accommodation is not included, but some tours do include lunch.) On Day One, set sail for the Great Barrier Reef on a full-day cruise, including an introductory scuba dive (suitable for first-time divers), snorkeling equipment, and two different stops along the reef. On Day Two, head north to discover the UNESCO-listed landscapes of the Daintree Rainforest, the oldest of its kind in the world. Aside from exploring the national park, visit the remote headland of Cape Tribulation, one of the most beautiful spots in Queensland. The final day trip includes a thrilling ride on the Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, affording dramatic views over the mountains, gorges, and waterfalls of Barron Gorge National Park, as well as free time to visit Kuranda village.

Hi Kiara, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am pleased to hear that the Reef Experience crew took such good care of you on your Great Barrier Reef tour. It's great to hear that Jean helped you enjoy your tour of the Daintree Rainforest,Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge. Kuranda has a lot to offer and there are some great free walks around the village and to the waterfalls that are available.
