Four of us joined the round trip tour from Cairns to Cooktown albeit we joined at Palm Cove.Our very friendly, informative guide / driver (Kate) was early and awaiting us with a welcoming smile (so early in the morning) and without delay we were off. The first section of the tour, along the coast road, up through the rain forest,... More

We loved our 4WD adventure to Cooktown last Tuesday. Kate, our driver, was very engaging and knowable, not to mention masterful at the wheel. Australia is a wonderful country and this is a great way to see it. Adventure North Australia is a professional company that I highly recommend

The guides were soo knowledgeable and we know so much more now about the rainforest, indigenous people, flora and fauna. Eating damper, banana muffins and mud crab caught by my husband whilst we had... More

An excellent day out and a relaxing (courtesy of our driver and guide Kate) way to see this part of Australia. Would highly recommend to anyone contemplating a desire to go to Cooktown. The round trip affords the opportunity to see an impressive range of land types and to meet some of the locals along the way.

I have already filled out a review form the day we travelled, but am happy to do another. Felt very impressed with the tour, enjoyed day very much, Kate was very informative, drove safely and was sensitive to our needs. My only comment (which I also wrote on the form), was that 'the evolutionary process' was mentioned a few times... More

Amazing!!! Bridget was amazing and informative. Jumping off rocks into the fresh river was fun. We learned to spear fish on the beach and got to walk through the mangroves and pick snails too. When we were finished we went back to the Walker Family Home where they cooked and prepared everything we had caught along with some fresh scones,... More
