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 went on the crocodile tour first and then the rainforest walk. Lots of information about how all the plants and animal interact. I learned a lot about the rainforest and it opened my eyes to the amazing diversity and complexity of the region. At the end of the tour we saw the resident Cassowary, amazing!

We did the 2 hour walk with Neil in the rain, and it was still a magnificent experience. We learnt so much about the intricate ecosystem of the forest. A cassowary walked in front of us at the beginning of the tour, as if on cue. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to really learn about the rainforest

Booked the 4 hour tour. Our guide Neil took us to a wonderful walk in the Daintree rainforest. His tremendous knowledge and lively explanation of forest, nature and its relation to mankind was stunning. A perfect narrative while walking through the wood. Having left Australia three weeks ago Neil's stories are still present and give me plenty to think about.... 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
