Departing from Cairns at 7:30 am, head north towards the Daintree, an area of ancient tropical rainforest spanning 120,000 hectares, making it the largest portion of tropical rainforest in Australia.


Enjoy an interpretive walk through the longest and most luscious nature trail in the National Park. An unrivalled opportunity to witness the complex ecosystems in this World Heritage Area finished off with a swim in the freshwater gorge.


At the Daintree Tea House, lunch has an exotic theme. The outside dining area is beautiful and exclusive, with views of the surrounding rainforest and continuous sounds of birds and nature. Why not treat your taste buds to some of the interesting and exotic fruits provided with lunch.


After lunch, we travel to the Daintree River for our Wildlife Cruise. The surroundings are full of opportunities to observe and photograph some of the most primitive forms of animal and plant life in the world. Our cruise operator has the only solar electric vessel on the Daintree River. The clean, green, quiet machine greatly benefit our wildlife spotting privileges.

We provide premier wildlife encounters in Far North Queensland, based out of Cairns.

Who are you

Our day tours are very suitable for nature-minded travellers and those who prefer a more personal, educational and interactive experience of the Wet Tropics region. All of our tours are fashioned in local wilderness areas as opposed to captive wildlife sanctuaries or zoos. Due to our small groups and hidden locations, we don't need to travel far, this way we spend more time enjoying the beautiful National Parks.

The Real Deal

For those travellers with a primary desire to engage with local wildlife in the wild, we encourage our exclusive and overnight experiences. Far North Queensland boasts a beautiful tropical climate in which our native wildlife are well adapted too. Overnight tours allow us the privilege of spending time with Crepuscular and Nocturnal wildlife to add to the overall quality of our observations.


Morning tea and lunch are provided on all of our day tours. We visit exclusive and exotic locations to experience the local flavours of the region. Premium meals with sides of fresh fruit, seafood and sometimes amazing desserts! Catering for special diets is no problem and we're here to make it simple. Relax, your dietary needs are in the best of hands. We'll be happy to suggest alternative menu options and individual food selections that are suitable.

Wildlife Rescue

As our way of contributing to the local community, we are heavily involved with FNQ Wildlife Rescue. Check out some of our blogs or ask your guide about some of the rescues we've experienced during your tour!
