Great Barrier Reef, Daintree and Cape Tribulation

The Great Barrier Reef, Daintree and Cape Tribulation package is the best way to experience two UNESCO listed heritage areas. Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, as well as the Daintree Rainforest, the oldest rainforest on the planet.

Great Barrier Reef Tour

Begin your unforgettable day when you step onboard the high-speed Catamaran “Reef Experience”. You can explore two spectacular reef sites during your 5 hours on the Outer Great Barrier Reef. As soon as you sink below the surface, you will be blown away by the colourful scenery. These coral reefs are truly magnificent.

A day on the Great Barrier Reef Tour will certainly be one of your most memorable days.

Cape Tribulation and Daintree Rainforest

Explore the exceptional biodiversity, and the ancient history of the UNESCO listed Cape Tribulation. Located within the Daintree National Park, you will explore the oldest living Rainforest. It is mindblowing when standing among a rainforest over 180 million years old!

Your day begins travelling north along the most scenic coastal highway. The Great Barrier Reef Drive is 140 km of endless ocean views. With this in mind, you will find yourself marvelling at all the brilliant shades of blue that you will see across the water. Before we head into Mossman Gorge, we will pay a quick visit to the Mossman Gorge Centre. After morning tea, we will then head on deeper into the rainforest to check out the pristine waters of Mossman Gorge. Join your guide for an informative walk and learn more about the surrounding rainforest.

Here you can spot abundant wildlife, but most importantly, keep your eyes peeled for the prehistoric saltwater croc!

Dig your toes into the shimmering sands of Cape Tribulation

Wander along Cape Tribulation Beach or join the walk up to Kulki lookout for a spectacular view. After all this exploring, you should have worked up an appetite, so it will be time to head to our exclusive private rainforest setting. Here we will enjoy a BBQ lunch in the shade while listening to the sweet sounds of the surrounding rainforest.

This eco accredited tour is led by experienced guides who have been in the region for many years. This means that you are certainly in good hands. This tour also operates with a GPS activated Audio Commentary system. The system is completely portable, wireless, and surprisingly, GPS triggered. So you don’t need to skip or select buttons! Commentary is delivered with both sound effects and music. You can bring along your own personal headset or hire a pair on the day at an extra cost. Multiple Languages are available, including Japanese, German, French, Italian, Chinese, as well as Spanish.
