Take a day trip from Cairns or Port Douglas to cruise the Daintree River and explore the Cape Tribulation rainforest. You'll have free time at Cape Tribulation to take a guided walk, drive the 4WD-only Bloomfield Track and go for a swim in the Coral Sea.
Your naturalist guide will take you north along the scenic route to Mossman, where lush farmland contrasts with coastal scenery as you approach the majestic Daintree River. After a break for morning tea it's all aboard for an informative river cruise. Relax and enjoy the Daintree's splendor as you learn about estuarine crocodiles and mangrove forests, and enjoy nature at its best.
After your cruise you'll ascend the Alexandra Range and pause for panoramic views of the tropical rainforest merging with the Coral Sea. While your lunchtime barbecue with homemade salads and Australian wine is being prepared, you can take the opportunity to swim in a tranquil freshwater stream. You'll spot fish and turtles in the creek, butterflies and exotic birds in the trees, and perhaps see goannas on the forest floor ' all at your luncheon site.
After lunch there is no set timetable or schedule, so throw away your watch and enjoy elevated walks through Cape Tribulation with your experienced guide, with ample time for questions and photographs. Travel along the 4WD-only Bloomfield Track and swim in the Coral Sea at Cape Tribulation (seasonal), where "the Rainforest meets the Reef".
On your return journey there will be a short afternoon refreshment stop where you can pat a kangaroo, have a beer or sip a cup of local tea, feeling fully refreshed from your "Rainforest Experience" at Cape Trib.

BEST DAY EVER!! Billy Tea Rain Forest tour is the best kept secret in Australia. This was the last tour we did on the last day of our trip and it was far and above the BEST. Small, comfortable, attractive 4 wheel drive buses driven by excellent guides we LOVE Uncle Neville. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better it did. Morning stop for coffee, tea and biscuits before the river tour, walks in the rain forest, a swim in a forest pool, tropical fruit tasting with 'billy tea' prepared the traditional way over a camp fire, a walk on the beach, a ferry ride, a stop for ice cream and a beautiful drive there and back. OH...and did I mention the incredible lunch prepared for us on the grill by our guides while we fed and petted wallabies. We cannot say enough about this tour and the tour company. If you are in North Queensland it is well worth the time and money.
