Daintree Highlights

 

Overview

Be invited by the local indigenous people of the Kuku Yalanji Tribe into their traditional territory. They are the only indigenous rainforest people who have preserved their language and most of their culture.

Experience the coastal rainforest not only from a western, botanical perspective. The Kuku Yalanji people share with you aspects of their life in the rainforest and how they used and still use the many different plants.

For sure, you are keen to see crocodiles in the wild during a boat cruise on the Daintree River. The best time to do so depends on the water level in the river, which in turn, being so close to the mouth of the river, depends on the tides of the sea. For that reason, we adjust the sequence of the program for each individual day, so you have the greatest chance of spotting one of these reptiles.

The rainforest of the Daintree National Park claims to be the oldest surviving rainforest in the world. On our tour you will learn about the significance of Gondwana flora and fauna, and you will be able to get close and take photos of some of these dinosaurs of the rainforest, referred to as “living fossils”.

We visit an area that is known for its density of Cassowaries. With some luck we may even come across one of these large, flightless birds.

Part of every visit to the Daintree National Park is a stroll along one of the beaches, where two World Heritage listed areas meet, the tropical Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.

Of course, you will also get familiar with the traces of white settlement. We will stop in the small town of Mossman, at sugar-, banana- and pineapple plantations, mango trees and other places along our route.

You will be able to absorb the day with all of your senses, as we stop frequently so you can see, hear, smell or taste something interesting.

On our tours there is no need for taking photos through the window of the bus, as we stop and get out of the bus at the most photogenic places and often quite spontaneously.

Just like with our other tours, the quality of your travel experience is the measure for our success.
