Small-Group Wildlife and Rainforest Tour from Port Douglas

Select Date and Travelers

Venture off the beaten track and explore the diverse Port Douglas region with Blue Adventures. Our tours have an emphasis on seeing wildlife and we spend time exploring World Heritage rainforest, cruising on a rainforest fringed volcanic crater lake and taking relaxing nature walks in some stunningly beautiful locations - all areas rich in native Australian animals.

On tour we regularly see wild animals including kangaroos, platypus, emus, wallabies, tree kangaroos, lizards and prolific birdlife.
* Please note that we require a minimum of 2 passengers to confirm a small-group wildlife and rainforest tour. If we do not meet minimum numbers we will contact you to discuss alternative dates or other our options.

What to Expect
Enjoy convenient pickup from your accommodation in Port Douglas and then soak up the scenery on the ride to the top of the Great Dividing Range and the start of the Atherton Tablelands. Begin the day with access to an Outback nature refuge, where you'll board a boat for a private wetland cruise. Get you cameras ready for sights of wallabies, wild emus, and a large number of native bird species. Stop for views of Clancy's Lagoon while digging into a light morning tea with local coffee and homemade pastries. Head for the grasslands to see some Eastern grey kangaroos and learn about them through your guide's commentary. Then move on to the rain forest for a creek-side walk in search of the duck-billed platypus, which makes its home here. Stop for lunch and then take a short walk through the Mabi rain forest to see some rare tree kangaroos, finishing up with possible stops at the Curtain Fig Tree and the Garden of Eden Waterfall. Your tour ends with convenient drop-off back at your hotel.
