Our tour does a little more, it takes you beyond Cape Tribulation along 7klms of the 4WD Bloomfield Track too pristine Emmagen Creek and time for a refreshing rainforest fresh water swim. Seek fish and turtles in the creek, butterflies and exotic birds in the trees and indulge in a feast taste testing of tropical fruit, a cup of traditional Billy Tea, and damper all of which enhance the tranquil surroundings.

At Cape Tribulation Beach, there is a little time to stroll along the beach and boardwalk to the photographers' platform overlooking the mountains and coast where the Rainforest meets the Reef. (There is no swimming at Cape Tribulation Beach due to dangerous Hazards)

After a short afternoon refreshment stop, we cross the Daintree River by cable ferry and begin our homeward journey somewhat wiser for our 'Total Rainforest Experience'.

I went on the Daintree National Park and Cape Tribulation tour. This was one of the best tours I have ever been on, and one of the highlights of my one month trip to Australia. The 4WD bus was super comfy and fitted only 12 people which made the tour super comfortable. The driver/tour guide was super knowledgable and entertaining, he also did the BBQ and tea in the wilderness, gave rainforest and animal talks, and had a great sense of humour (we were laughing all throughout the trip). The itinerary was very well planned and we managed to see and do much more than I expected. Really amazing experience, do not miss it if you travel to Cairns or Port Douglas!

Great tour of Daintree and Cape Tribulation. Well organized tour and we did see a lot and travelled to a lot of places during the day. If I had rented a car and tried doing on my own, would have only covered 1/10 of what we saw. Guide was informative/fun and the tropical fruit tasting was quite amazing.

Travelled up to Cape Tribulation and back from Port Douglas with a Daintree River Cruise, free biscuits and coffee at the beginning trek (mind you pick up from resort is included.) Today started of at Qt, Port Dougles, QLD. Travelled down Mossman into a hut to the river cruise with complimentary biscuit and coffee. Excellent cruise down the Daintree then hop onto the 4WD's to the Daintree... I can go on forever but it was simply amazing the service and sights. Damper bread, exotic fruits, a swim in freshwater, Cape Tribulation Beach and a ferry water crossing in a day, simply amazing even a walk through the Daintree guided, worth every penny! Just GO! Pro Drivers. Oh and a nice big BBQ mini buffet and Wallaby feeding not sure what else but again amazing. Edit: Ice-Cream detour as well fresh Daintree ice cream, excellent
