Day 6
Starting in the mid afternoon when the sun is highest in the sky, you will experience the magical views of the Great Barrier Reef Drive, perhaps the region’s most scenic coastal highway. Observe the changes in habitat diversity as we venture north to the Daintree Tropical Rainforest. Cruise the beautiful Daintree River spotting wildlife on a quiet, clean solar electric boat with zero environmental impact. Get closer to nature… hear, smell & experience without noise & fumes. Afternoon tea included prior to departure. Arrive at Cape Tribulation, a World Heritage area with pristine beaches, rainforest, cool streams, towering mountains and freshwater valleys that captivate our visitors. We often spend an hour exploring the natural assets of the coastline. Dining in the evening Rainforest is an experience not to miss! A wildlife tour in Far North Queensland is not complete without a night walk. Much of the local wildlife has adopted a nocturnal lifestyle to avoid to heat of the day in the tropical climate. Perhaps the most unique part of this experience is to observe nocturnal wildlife in the Wet Tropics.

Day 7
It’s time to say goodbye to Australia’s beautiful landscapes and wildlife. Enjoy a private transfer to Cairns airport. From here, you’ll connect to an international gateway such as Brisbane or Sydney to begin your journey home.
