This rainforest-relict from Gondwana is inspirational and exceptional. Old-world rainforest, pristine and primitive, needs to be experienced on a guided interpreted tour with a local expert to fully appreciate its rarity and complexity. We recommend both day and night tours. « less

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor about Coopers Creek Wilderness my wife and I booked in for the two hour tour. . . . and last week we did it. We had Prue who is the owner/custodian of the property take us on a walk through their own bit of paradise, and let me tell you it was amazing to... More

My son and I went with Prue on the Fern walk. Prue was so knowledgeable about the Daintree and it's history, and we came away with a much better understanding of how much is going on, with symbiotic relationships between plants and animals we cannot even begin to fathom. Prue was so knowledgeable about the Cassowary also, and we had... More

Wonderful insights from Prue, a former teacher, who was able to convey much vital and fascinating information about the rainforest and its flora and fauna. Our tour comprised only two families, so was personal enough for all to get a true wilderness experience. Prue is all class, a true professional. We saw a bearded dragon and many incredible plants, fungi... More

For those who like to get away from the tourist path and really immerse into the native landscape. We booked a package which had an early morning river boat tour with Murray and an afternoon 4 hour walk with Neil through the last fragment of 120 million year old rain forest on the planet. We followed this up with a... More

We picked the tour from the reviews here and also because we wanted an authentic experience in the Daintree without the rush of many commercialised tour companies which just skimmed the surface of visiting Daintree. Neil has lived in Daintree for 26 years and an advocate of conservation in the purest form. Free from political influence, he has devoted his... More

Cooper Creek Wilderness is the true blue rainforest. If you are after a completely personal and deeply informational experience from the forest's custodians you can't go past this tour. Even though it is more pricey than other tours available, it is worth every penny. The night walk was amazing, nothing but a couple of torches and a single person wide... More

So pleased I did this. The rainforest walks in Daintree/Cape Tribulation had left me a bit unimpressed. Not so here. This is outside the national park but essentially is the same rainforest. You are shown stick insects, spiders that look like part of the tree bark, spiders that look like bird poo, a decent go at cassowaries and pythons and... More

Thanks to Prue for a great tour earlier this week. We were amazed by the depth and breadth of her knowledge about the Daintree Rainforest, and came away with a much greater appreciation of the area. We would recommend this tour for anyone who wishes to learn more about the rainforest. Ron & Andrea C. BC Canada

The basic tour is fine but the additional stuff in the packages is a big ripoff! The Fan Palm Gallery Tour is a bit overpriced for what it covers and our tour guide got very distracted talking to others on the tour about their home country. We did the Cooper Creek Wilderness tour and paid an additional $85 per person... More

We did the night walk through the rainforest. We are so glad we did the tour we learned so much in the 2.5 hours. It enhanced the rest of the time we were in the rainforest. To name but a few of the sights we saw flying foxes, micro bats , all types of sleeping birds, bandicoots, frogs, toads ,... More
