The best private tour in Cairns for Nature Lovers!

Departing from Cairns at 7:30am, head north towards the Daintree, an area of ancient tropical rainforest spanning 120, 000 hectares, making it the largest portion of tropical rainforest in Australia. Walk the 2. 5 Kilometer quiet track to witness the complex ecosystems in this World Heritage Area, with time to enjoy a swim in the incredible fresh water gorge.

At the Daintree Tea House, lunch has an exotic theme. The outside dining area is beautiful and exclusive with views of the tropical rainforest and continuous sounds of birds and nature.

After lunch we travel to the Daintree River for our Wildlife Cruise. The surroundings are full of opportunities to observe and photograph some of the most primitive forms of animal and plant life in the world. Most days we experience great bird life and crocodile activity.
