Back Country Bliss love anything to do with adventure and the great outdoors and this full day Daintree Tour is right in their sweet spot. If you want to see the Daintree Rainforest from the ground, and from up in the rainforest canopy, this is the tour for you.
The day starts with a 7am pickup so you are out in the rainforest nice and early, which is when a lot of the wildlife like to get out and forage. You have a driver/guide who knows this area intimately and who loves to tell you about it. Visitors always comment on what a difference the fascinating information about the flora and fauna in this unique World Heritage Listed area made to the tour. It’s one thing to see nice rainforest. It’s another thing to understand how it lives and breaths.
After a short drive north through beautiful cane fields you cross the Daintree River on the old style Daintree Cable Ferry and enter the ‘jungle’. It really is beautiful. Here you are treated to the spectacular view from Alexandra Lookout, Jungle Canopy Surfing (which for many people is the highlight of their holiday), rainforest Boardwalks, lunch with native wildlife and an ice-cream treat at the Daintree Ice Cream Company (who grow dozens of varieties of unusual tropical fruits to use in the ice-cream).
Back to the ancient Daintree River you are off on a one hour Wildlife Cruise looking for crocodiles, snakes, rainforest birds and more. It’s great to see the river wildlife and the rainforest from another perspective.
On the way back to Port Douglas you call in for a swim in the beautiful Mossman River. The water here is as pure as you can imagine, and a lovely cool way to finish the day. (This component of the tour is seasonal and depends on the conditions).
