Description: Cooper Creek Wilderness is famous for its magnificent Fan Palm Galleries...
Cooper Creek Wilderness is famous for its magnificent Fan Palm Galleries. 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.

We took the boat, as part of a tour, which took us to the mouth/beach of the creek and then up a couple of the branches of the creek. It reminded us of "Swamp People", as we looked at the mangroves on the edge for any sign of reptiles (we saw just a baby one on the day we went).... More

Exceeded my expectations! I wanted an guided tour in the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest. Neil provided us with the most thought provoking and informative tour I have ever experienced. His respect and knowledge of the land and peoples of the land had my mind completely engaged for the entire 4 hours. He was so thorough and intelligent, I still... More

We took a guided tour to see the magnificent stand of native fan palms (Licuala ramsayi). It was impressive. We didn't know about the ancient ribbonwood trees growing there. Thought to be extinct, they were rediscovered in 1971 and date back to the Cretacious Period or about 120 million years ago. That the species has survived for so long is... More

Fantastic 2 hours with Neil in his own corner of Daintree. Great knowledge of fauna, flora special relationships between the plants, with a bit of politics thrown in. This is a must whilst up in the worlds oldest rainforest

Angie guided our family and another group of two on the Grand Fan Palm Day Tour. It began with the river cruise (you meet along with people from other tour companies), and we were lucky enough to see both resident crocodiles, the male and female just a few minutes after leaving! I wouldn't even mention the cruise if it wasn't... More

We were guided by Prue on a day that was over 100 degrees F. and astoundingly humid and despite that it was an incredible experience. I had been dreading it because of the temperatures but it was so interesting we forgot. Prue is extremely knowledgeable and interesting, stopping fairly often to pount out a creature, a plant or a tree.... More

After waiting for workers to clear a large tree that had fallen and blocked the main road to Cape Tribulation, we continued on to the private property for our 4 hour Cooper Creek Wilderness tour. As we arrived, "Bertha" one of the local cassowaries was crossing the grounds, and we managed to get a photo of her in the forest... More

Neil took our group on a 2 hour walk, prior to going you don't realise how detached you are being a city dweller to nature. Listen to Neil's stories, and soon you will realise it really is a circle of life, and nature works always in a perfect balance.
