I went on Uncle Brian's tour with 7 friends during our weekend trip to Cairns and it was a total blast! Our tour guide was cousin Rob who loves to play games, tell silly stories, and make sure everyone is having a great time. We were provided with breakfast (cookies, lamingtons, and the backside of a green ant which squirted... More

That's ok if you like this type of fun and if the weather is good ! To tell the true, I expected more talk about the nature and more walk (miss the platypus :( )... than water. As the weather was really cloudy and freezing some times, It was a little bit hard to be wet all the times. I... More

I actually had this experience a year ago but wasn't familiar with trip advisor at the time! A year later I find myself STILL thinking about the amazing day I had on uncle brains therefore here's my review... A day full of laughter, adventures and new friends. The activities including sliding down natural waterslides, swimming though waterfalls, licking bugs, swimming... More

From the minute we were picked up to when we were dropped off, Cousin Paul had us in stitches. Such a beautiful part of the world to be seen. Very informative and light hearted. Great value and a Crackin day out!

Probably the most fun trip I've been on in Australia! This was one of my last stops on my East Coast trip and Cousin Amber did such a fantastic job of making it a great day out. If you've ever wanted to spend a day feeling like you're smack dab in the middle of a fun kids television show, while... More

-A good one day trip to the rainforest at QLD. -We saw mostly waterfalls than the actual forest though. -The tour guid (Cousin Brad) made the whole trip from an average to a super fun trip. -Unfortunately we didn't see any platypus. -The lunch and the snacks were good.

The moment you step in the bus the fun begins! Our tour guide Syd entertained us really well on the long drives to the waterfalls. It rained a lot during our trip, but that didn't bother us. The tour guide really took the time to get the pictures right at the Millaa Millaa falls, which I found amazing. The photo's... More

I was really excited about this tour as it has been recommended by many friends of mine and it has outstanding reviews on tripadvisor. I am a solo traveller, and so far have had a great time getting to know people on tours. I was the last person to be picked up on my bus and the only seat left... More

From the moment you get on an uncle Brians Bus, you will be assaulted with very high level of energy from your tour guide (in my case, Cousin Rob) that you might not be prepared for at 8am. You realise later on that he's set the pace for the day, and it doesn't stop. It took me a little time... More

Every stop is amazing and so beautiful, you will take 100 pictures on this tour. Cousin Amber made the whole day so much fun and there was never a dull moment. She honestly made the day, best tour guide I've ever had in my life. You get two snack stops and lunch and it is all delicious. You can go... More
