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.
Cape Tribulation Daintree Four wheel Drive Rainforest Day Tour — Billy Tea Safaris
If you prefer the type of rainforest day tour where time is not of the essence (that is, you get lots of free time to explore) and your tour guide is jovial, informative, relaxed and friendly then Billy Tea Safaris Cape Tribulation and Daintree day tour is the trip north for you.
After arriving at the Daintree River from Cairns the Northern Beaches or Port Douglas in a high riding air-conditioned long wheel based truck you will enjoy a boat ride down the mighty Daintree River in search of the ferocious salt water Crocodiles that lurk in the murky waters and surrounding Mangroves. 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
On your rainforest safari you will walk into the rainforest along elevated boardwalks to learn about the history and the inhabitants of this fragile and precious eco system. You will get to stroll along the picture perfect beaches that are fringed by rainforests and gaze out to sea from the lookout points on the headland.
Enjoy petting Wallabies and Kangaroos whilst you wait for your auusie barbeque to be cooked for you from your rainforest safari guide and then move northward to Emmagen creek for a swim in the pure mountain rivers to refresh yourself. Whilst here you will get to learn about exotic tropical fruits and have a cup of billy tea brewed up for you.
