I did the Cape Tribulation tour with an overnight stay. And it was horrible. We are being told beforehand that the tour is rushed - it's fine, long distances, short days with no day-time saving, it's okay. But I don't like being treated like a...More

What an amazing trip! The swim in Mossman Gorge was was a wonderful experience. We only saw one crocodile on the boat cruise as it wasn’t the best time of year to go, but still well worth it. The tour through the rainforest was really...More
