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. Enjoy an interpretive walk through the longest and most luscious nature trail in the National Park. An unrivalled opportunity to witness the complex ecosystems in this World Heritage Area, finished off with a swim in the freshwater gorge.

At the Daintree Tea House, lunch has an exotic theme. The outside dining area is beautiful and exclusive, with views of the surrounding rainforest and continuous sounds of birds and nature. Why not treat your taste buds to some of the interesting and exotic fruits provided with lunch.

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. Our cruise operator has the only solar electric vessel on the Daintree River. The clean, green, quiet machine greatly benefits our wildlife spotting privileges. Most days we experience great bird life and crocodile activity.

What age groups are most suited for your tours?
Our tours are all about less time driving and more time exploring! Nature lovers of all ages can enjoy our tours!
What do I wear?
Comfortable clothes as you are in the tropics, our winter or ‘dry season’ can be slightly cool in the mornings, a light jacket may be handy. Natural light colours are recommended for wildlife spotting and staying cool in the warmer months. Hiking shoes are not necessary for our day tours. Flat comfortable shoes or sandals are okay for our day walks. All our tours have access to safe swimming areas and therefore a towel and spare clothes are great to have in a day pack.
Will we see Crocodiles in the wild?
Saltwater Crocodiles are best spotted in the cooler months of the year (April-Oct). As the water temperature drops, Crocodiles spend more time bathing in the sun to warm their reptile bodies. This greatly improves the quality of our observations, however Saltwater Crocodiles breed during the summer months (Nov-March) and therefore get quite active in the river. We see more Crocodiles swimming and sometimes fighting, rather than laying in the sun. In Queensland we do not feed or entice our wild animals including Crocodiles. It can be dangerous to form an association between boats and food. Quite favorably when we witness Crocodile activity it is without any intervention and that makes it fantastic! We have a 100% success rate with Croc spotting, during difficult weather,we may spend extra time on the cruise to fulfil our desires.
What type of vehicle do you use?
Our touring vehicle is a modern and fully air-conditioned Hyundai Imax with a total capacity of seven. For private bookings requiring special access to remote areas, we use a modern 4WD Nissan Patrol, seating 6 passengers. For larger group enquires we have access to a 13 seat Hi-ace commuter.
