Cairns has a variety of rainforest day tours and each tour operator has a unique itinerary to ensure you do not run into to many others whilst on your four wheel drive adventure in the rainforests of Cairns.
The Cape Tribulation and Daintree National Park covers quite a large area and there are a number of cute little aussie townships and interesting things on the outskirts to explore along the way. You may wish to refer to our Daintree Rainforest map for more information.

Each one of these territorial monsters are well known to the park rangers and each one has it own name for one reason or another like Scarface who had his head re-arranged one mating season by a competing male.
As you drift along you will see all sorts of other rainforest animals and learn all about the importance of the flora and fauna that make up the World Heritage Cape Tribulation and Daintree Rainforests and mangroves and how they have a role in acting as a nursery for the fish and other creatures on the Great Barrier Reef
