Cape Tribulation Day Trip From $205pp

Nowhere else on the planet do two naturally occurring World Heritage listed sites coexist. Enjoy a full day tour of Cape Tribulation with an Indigenous Experience at Mossman Gorge and discover its wonders and beauty.

Be astounded by the immense diversity you will come across in just one day. The scenic coastal drive and picturesque lookouts are the perfect way to start your day, before delving into the oldest and most magnificent rainforest in the world – the Daintree. Here, low-lying ferns and enormous canopies completely surround your view. You will feel as though you’ve gone back in time as you take in the sights of these ancient trees. Take a dip in the cool waters at Mossman Gorge, carved out by the large granite boulders eons ago. Experience a Welcome to Country Ceremony with the Traditional Owners of the land, the Kuku Yalanji people, and feel truly immersed in this region and its history. Hop on a wildlife cruise to spot crocodiles and more in their natural habitat. Take a stroll along the stunning Cape Tribulation beach, with the Daintree behind you and the Great Barrier Reef ahead of you – not a sight you’ll forget any time soon. Visit the Daintree Ice Cream Co. for a mouthwatering locally produced ice cream which comes in all kinds of exotic fruity flavours.

Feel connected to nature and history when you book a Cape Tribulation & Daintree Rainforest Day Trip.
