Cape Tribulation and Daintree Tours

Cape Tribulation and Daintree tours take you north to the world famous Daintree Rainforest and iconic Cape Tribulation, where the reef meets the rainforest. These tours can be booked as a full day adventure, or extended to a stay and play package, by booking (at least) one night’s accommodation in either Cape Tribulation or Port Douglas.

The Active Tropics Explorer Cairns Cape Tribulation and Daintree tours provide guests with a range of amazing environmental and cultural experiences, including an exclusive “Welcome to Country” and smoking ceremony with the traditional owners at Mossman Gorge.

First things first. We begin with pick-ups in Cairns and the Northern Beaches, before heading along the scenic ‘Great Barrier Reef’ drive to Port Douglas. This winding coastal road provides amazing views over the Coral Sea and on a perfect day, you can’t tell where the big blue sky ends and the glittering waters begin.

Mossman Gorge & Welcome to Country

Mossman Gorge is the first official stop on this Cairns Cape Tribulation and Daintree tour, where you receive a cultural education by the traditional owners, the Kuku Yalanji people. Experience a deep connection during the smoke ceremony, when they cleanse you of evil spirits and apply traditional rainforest body paint to you. If you wish, there’s time for a refreshing swim in the bracing waters of the Mossman Gorge.

Taking the Daintree Ferry, we cross the Daintree River. A wildlife cruise is included in this Cairns Cape Tribulation and Daintree tour, where you learn more about the Daintree River ecosystem and some of its inhabitants, including the crocodiles.

Cape Trib & Daintree Rainforest

Lunch is at the Cape Trib Beach House. You can expect a tasty tucker, eaten right on the beach. When your batteries are recharged, it’s time to explore the rainforest on a guided tour of the Marrdja Botanical Boardwalk.

Ice-cream lovers will not be disappointed when we visit Floravilla, offering 26 flavours of locally made ice-cream. Choose from traditional favorites like vanilla and chocolate, or go troppo with a dragonfruit cone or cup of black sapote. This is at your own cost, but it’s worth it!

In the afternoon, we pause at the Alexandra Range lookout, to soak in views of the Daintree rainforest, river and delta.

Day Tour – Best of the Best

Some of the best of the best that Cairns has on offer. We’re talking scenic coastal drives, with views over the Coral Sea, Mossman Gorge, the Daintree River and Rainforest and Cape Tribulation, the only place on earth where two natural World Heritage listed sites exist side by side, reef and rainforest.

Overnight Tour – Stay and Play

Maximise your adventure by booking to stay overnight (or for many nights) with one of our partners at Cape Tribulation and/or Port Douglas. You get all the inclusions of the day tour, plus some excellent rates for your accommodation and the chance to do other activities, like a reef trip.

Welcome to Country

EXCLUSIVE! Traditional “Welcome to Country” and smoke ceremony with the Kuku Yalanji, the traditional owners of Mossman Gorge. This is not available on any other Cape Tribulation and Daintree day tour. Learn about ancient customs and culture during an informative presentation.
