What you can expect
A totally unique and fascinating day tour experience showcasing the only region on earth where two World Heritage listed locations exist side by side – where Rainforest meets the Reef.
Your day begins with a breath-taking reef scenic flight delivering stunning views extending from the tropical rainforest clad coastline, across the azure waters of the Coral Sea, and into the very heart of Great Barrier Reef. Only from this unique aerial perspective can the vibrant hues and sheer expanse of the reef’s thriving coral gardens be truly appreciated.
Your highly skilled pilot will share their local knowledge of the region while on the lookout for Turtles, Dolphins, Manta Rays, large schools of pelagic fish and even majestic Humpback Whales (Jul-Sep).
The highlights continue as we cross back over the coastline and follow the majestic Daintree River as it winds its way through the oldest continually surviving rainforest on earth.
Your rainforest guide prepares morning tea as we touch down on the banks of the river before embarking on a 1-hour Daintree river cruise, home to the prehistoric estuarine crocodile. Your experienced river guide will discuss the unique characteristics of the regions birdlife, butterflies, tree snakes, reptiles, mangrove systems and other endemic plants.
Next, climb aboard our purpose-built tour vehicle and ascend the Alexandra Range stopping for a breathtaking photo opportunity at the iconic Alexandra Range Lookout.
Join your naturalist guide on an elevated boardwalk tour – learn about the regions unique and diverse flora and fauna including chance sightings of the endemic Boyd’s Rainforest Dragon plus the elusive and endangered Southern Cassowary

After lunch we continue on to Cape Tribulation beach with time for a walk on the beach. With a photogenic backdrop of majestic rainforest clad mountains, this is the only place on earth where two World Heritage areas coexist, as Wet Tropical Rainforest meets The Great Barrier Reef.
