Continue on to Copperlode Dam, surrounded by UNESCO World Heritage-listed rain forest and mountains, and Lake Morris. With an exclusive access permit, depart the public-use roads and continue through the rain forest, stopping at a boardwalk for an interpretive overview of the rain forest. Next, enter the savannah and stop at Kuranda Village on the way to Upper Barron Gore National Park, including a stop at the famous Barron Valls. Finally, stop at the Henry Ross Lookout overlooking the northern beach suburbs of Cairns and back out towards the Coral Sea. Your tour ends with a return to your Cairns accommodation.

Guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the environment sometimes this tipped from education to hectoring but understandable given some of the things he told us. The tour was done after a long shortage of rain and that meant the rainforest and waterfalls were dryer
