DR4 – Walk Cruise Extension

4-hour Greater Wilderness Experience through magnificent old-growth rainforest and a one-hour cruise through the world’s most diverse mangrove community, habitat to estuarine crocodiles and an extraordinary diversity of life.  This guided walk cruise combination combines the 4-hour Greater Wilderness Tour with a one-hour mangrove cruise in a 5-hour package that presents the best of the Daintree Rainforest with Australia’s most complex mangrove community, habitat to the estuarine crocodile.

Erosion and deposition of soils resulting from weathering of mountain ranges has created a mosaic of varying rainforest types to build on the biodiversity.  The 4-hour guided rainforest walk provides access into more forest types and penetration into magnificent stands of old-growth Gondwanan rainforest that better illustrate the natural and cultural values of the world’s oldest rainforest.

This stunning rainforest is not available to mass tourism.  Only small, exclusive groups, with minimal impact are permitted.   There are no boardwalks or man-made contraptions to spoil the natural beauty and visitors need to accept the elements of risks associated with natural hazards.  The walk is moderately easy, but covers about 7 kms.  A good level of fitness is required.

Time:  08.30 AM or 10.15 am

Duration:  5-hours

Minimum  2

Cost:  $135/Adult, $115/child (U/14 years)

DR6 – Daintree Rainforest River Combinations

Combine a 2-Hour Daintree River Wildlife Cruise with either a 2-Hour Grand Fan Palm Gallery Tour (DR6) or a 4-Hour Greater Wilderness Experience (DR6-ext).

Combining magnificent rainforest with the wildlife viewing opportunities on the early morning’s Daintree River seeks out crocodiles, snakes and rare birds, in natural habitat.

Both walks and cruises are conducted in small groups, with clear views of wildlife in the trees and sky above.  The secretive nature of the wildlife, exploiting camouflage and mimicry is demonstrated through two very different landscapes.  Daintree Rainforest is extraordinarily rich in biodiversity and in primitive flora and fauna. It is a forest for connoisseurs of nature, contrasting the secretive cryptic features of complex mesophyll closed canopy rainforest with the open vistas of tranquil and majestic Daintree River  panoramas.

Self Drive – Starts at Daintree Village landing.

    Dear Sir/madam,

    I will be visiting Cairns on my own to learn more about the rainforest and see as much nature as possible. Your tour seems to be exactly what I’m looking for. I noticed the 3dr is a self drive tour, but since I will be alone I did not plan on renting a car. I did not see self drive with the dr 4 or 6 tour states; does this mean there is a pick up in palm cove possible? Or do you have my advice for me on how to get to the start of the tour?

    Thank you so much,
