The activities themselves are near Port Douglas, but they pick you up from Cairns/Northern Beaches etc and the bus driver does provide some interesting information along the way. The first stop was the mud crab and hunting. Our local guide, Linc was fantastic - very knowledgeable and keen to share information about his culture. This was definitely the highlight of... More

We have been offering Aboriginal Tourism with the traditional owners in our region for 8 years and have seen our product grow from strength to strength. Hunting and gathering with the Kubirri-warra brothers... More

I wish I had done more research into this because I really wanted a tour of the rainforest and some education about Aboriginal culture and the meaning of dreamtime and we didn't get this. Dreamtime was never mentioned. The time at the art studio was interesting, and I am glad I have my small painting as a souvenir, but I... More

Thank you for reviewing our Daintree Dreaming Day Tour. Dreamtime’ or ‘Dreaming’ has never been a direct translation of an Aboriginal word. The English language does not know an equivalent to express the complex Aboriginal spiritual concepts to non-indigenous people. Myself included as the owner of Adventure North Australia. I'm sorry that our tour wasn't suitable for you, we pride... More

We took the full day Cairns to Cooktown 4WD adventure tour through the Daintree Forest and Cape Tribulation. Andy, our guide and driver was cheerful, very helpful and a mine of information. The vehicle was comfortable as it could expected to be, given the terrain it covered. The scenery was superb and we enjoyed our day immensely. We will remember... More

I thoroughly enjoyed myself, it was a great trip. The weather did make a change to the plans but that could not be helped. Could not say anything but positive reviews for Andy, knew what he was talking about and all round top bloke. Due to the forced changes, he paid for everyone's lunch out of his own pocket! The...

The tour itself is a massive day but you get to see heaps on the way. I was a little disappointed as we did not get to do the Bloomfield Track or the Daintree Rainforest but these were circumstances which were out of the vendors hands due to a previous cyclone. The tour guide was extremely friendly, knowledgeable on the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Operating through remote regions does have it's challenges every now and then. Fortunately Cyclone Ita didn't do too much damage to Cooktown and we are back on the Bloomfield track as of the 1st May 2014. Regards Maryanne More

Scotty, our guide, was fun and knowledgeable. We loved Branden, the Aboriginal guide- he knocked mangoes from trees, taught us to find clams and even cook up a fresh turtle for us to try! The rainforest was beautiful! Loved the fresh water swim. It is all day and pricey, but we thought it was worth every penny.
