Day 3 – 1 Day Daintree Rainforest

Today you will be heading to the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest. Magnificent coastal rainforest and pristine tropical beaches stretching from the sugar town of Mossman to the Bloomfield River and all within 3 hours from Cairns.
Travelling in a small group of 13 from Cairns to Cape Tribulation (the headlands of the Daintree Rainforest) along one of the most scenic coastal roads in Australia.
Passing through one of Cairns most beautiful beach suburbs of Palm Cove, continuing your journey north stopping at Rex lookout and onto the seaside village of Port Douglas, enjoying a tour around town plus flagstaff hill overlooking four-mile beach and the historical St Mary’s by the Sea.
On the road again to the southern edge of the Daintree National Park – the magical “Mossman Gorge” surrounded by lush rainforest, where the clear mountain river cuts through thick rainforest and tumbles over boulders on its journey to the sea. Enjoy a morning tea of bush scones then a guided walk in dense tropical rainforest.
Heading further north towards the Daintree Tea House for a delicious lunch in a setting unlike any other. After Lunch you will join a small and personalised tour on the Daintree River, taking you through the domain of the large estuarine crocodiles. Egrets wade near mangroves in the murky water of the river where the crocodile’s wait patiently for a meal. Look for pythons, tree snakes, butterflies and lots of other wildlife on this cruise.
Crossing the mighty Daintree River on a cable ferry, you are now entering the Cape Tribulation section of the Daintree national park.
This is where it all begins to change. You will feel like you have entered a different world with Rainforest towering over narrow winding roads.
