Highlights
  • Incredible scenery and rare wildlife sightings such as cassowary
  • Enjoy morning tea, an alfresco lunch, and homemade ice cream
  • Hassle-free pickup and drop-off at your Cairns hotel
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of seven people
What to expect
  • Gain an insight to Northern Queensland's vast diversity without the crowds. Kevin will pick you up from your accommodation, introduce you to the other  adventurers and start you on a unique one day experience. A short drive and you are out in the rainforest, enjoying the crystal clear water of Stoney Creek and a rainforest interpretive walk. Up the hill you climb, enjoying panoramic views of Cairns City and out to the Great Barrier Reef. Morning tea is served overlooking Lake Morris, a man made marvel, surrounded by Lambs Range a small part of the 900 000 hectares that makes up part of the World Heritage Listed Wet Tropics. Through a locked gate, 4WD is locked and your journey into the vastness of the rainforest begins. Jurrasic Park is a statement heard often... You follow a seldom used old logging track into the traditional land of the Tjapukai people. You are now travelling back in time, it is a living museum. Plants and animals that no longer survive any where else on the planet still inhabit this area.The rare Cassowary, the Boyd's Rainforest Dragon, Musky Rat Kangaroo and Giant Tree Fern are found nowhere but here. Marvelling at the immenseness and natural beauty of the surrounds, you drive though five crystal clear streams and arrive at your lunch spot. A buffet lunch is served Alfreso in the middle of the forest. The sounds of the wind, water and birds are your background music. After lunch you take a boardwalk adventure.The biggest birds nest you will see, an amazingly beautiful water feature, a tree you think is the biggest you have ever seen, till you see the surprise at the end of the boardwalk. A 900 year old strangler fig tree. This tree has strangled,killed and eaten another tree. Definitely a jungle in here After two more stream crossings the rainforest dissapears suddenly. Landscape and weather change dramatically. We are now in the Aussie Bush. Eucalyptus trees and giant termite mounds are the new features. All of a sudden seemingly out of nowhere an ice cream shop appears. A complimentary ice cream is enjoyed. With 45 flavours of hand made ice creams all produced from locally grown fruit, choosing one is always difficult. A large selection of locally made souvenirs are available here as well. Your afternoon break is followed by another landscape change. On the way to Davies Creek Falls for an afternoon cool down, you touch on the edge of the Aussie Outback. The waterfall itself is amazing, but it's the secret natural rock pool at the top which is the surprise. The pool is so incredible that a beer commercial has been filmed there. What more of a recommendation do you need? No Aussie adventure would be complete without seeing a wallaby or 200. The aptly named Pretty Faced Wallabies are always photogenic.  At the end of the tour having been amused, entertained and educated, Kevin will bid you farewell and return you to your accommodation.

Beat tour! Kevin goes above and beyond.
Learned so much and saw so many things about the Australian rainforest and did it in style with Kevin’s jeep and awesome driving skills. If you want to check out the rainforest in Australia which you should, definitely go with this day tour. He’s super friendly and knows everything so feel free to come with questions. He is also hilarious so kept us entertained all day. Lunch was also delicious and he took us to other viewpoints and stops to check out animals in the wild like kangaroos/wallabies that were outside of the rainforest portion which is most of the tour. It’s a full and very educational and fun day

We had a blast with Kevin! Top notch banter, so extremely knowledgeable about the area - he shared so much great info about the flora and fauna- more fun than school and yet we learned while laughing sooooooo much! I really dislike mosquito spray - so I did not use it and they love me. Kevin was at the ready with tea tree oil - which I forgot to pack. He shared so many beautiful places, info and stories - I can’t say enough wonderful things about the time we spent with him!!!! Do not forgo this tour!!

Dec 2019
Kevin picked me up on time and was a great and knowledgeable guide. All four of us on the tour that day enjoyed it. He talks non stop but is very interesting and keeps you informed and entertained. Lunch was great and in such a lovely setting by a creek. The ice cream stop was very welcome too. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough as every detail was covered by Kevin. Great day out. Many thanks Kev.

Must Do in Cairns!
Dec 2019
This is one of the best tours I have ever been on. Kevin is incredibly knowledgeable, and Betsy II (the Land Cruiser) is full of character. Kevin knows all the secret spots and can entertain the whole family. He did a fantastic job, and I hope he comes and visits us in Yellowstone one day! Thanks Kev!

Best money spent in Australia!
What a great day of quiet, awesome views! Lovely view and history of the city, great up close and personal tour of the rainforest. Wonderful spotting of animals and birds. Kevin is a great tour guide. Funny, informative, passionate about nature. This tour includes lovely tea, a homemade lunch in a natural outdoor setting and an afternoon ice cream treat at a family owned business! We loved spending the day with an Aussie, learning about his family, his neighbors and his country. Great family outing... you will not be disappointed!

To the jungle!!
Our group of 4 adults and 1 little girl (4 year olds) had a great time with Kevin today. This is our best tour ever (we took many tours in Asian, EU and Australia). Kevin is very friendly, energetic, enthusiasm and knowledgeable. We visit many beautiful and fantastic places of Cairns. If you do not like crowned and noisy places; this is the best choice. Much much better than other Kuranda and others tours.
