This tour is informative and fun. Rain hail or shine, we leave from Cairns at 7:30am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Stop and admire the view from the famous Kuranda lookout.
Visit the famous Barron Falls, a spectacle on any day in itself, but be prepared to be blown away by the power and majesty of some awe-inspiring creative landscapse.
Hungry? Then maybe a Devonshire morning tea included at the famous Mt Uncle Distillery/Bridges Cafe is the order of the morning.
Now comes the highlight of your day - a fully guided tour of the Historical pioneer village of Herberton, plus an old fashioned cooked lunch.
