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.

Passion for nature and the interdependency between nature and mankind - walk for a couple of hours with Prue through the rainforest and you see and learn more than you ever expect. Also good to take smaller kids along, knows how to engage and interact. Well worth it!

If you go to cape trib and you don't do this tour, you are cheating yourself out of a fantastic learning experience. Prue gave us a 2 hour walking tour of her ancient rainforest grounds. The Daintree is over 130M years old and the amount of knowledge that Prue and her family have acquired about the land over the last... More

We did the 4 hour walk with Neil on a misty soft rainy day and loved every minute of it. Neil has a brilliant mind full of extraordinary facts about the World Heritage area in which he lives. It was evident that he is part of this ecosystem as much as the forrest he took us through. We felt very... More

We did the 4 hour wilderness walk and highly recommend it. Neil is a walking encyclopaedia on the rainforest and the information that he gave us was fascinating and, at times, disturbing. We had no idea about the numbers of wild pigs in the Daintree and the impact they have on the entire ecosystem - just shocking. The stories of... More

We did the 2 hour Grand Fan Palm Gallery walk with Cooper Creek Wilderness. We were attracted to this place without the knowledge of guided walks offered by them. We turned up into their private property by accident. However, we were impressed with the amazing location and decided to book a guided walk with them. Due to limited time in... More

Went with my family for a tour with Angie - it was simply amazing! 20+ years of experience in the rainforest definitely shows in this amazingly informative tour. Learned a lot about all sorts of plants, birds, as well as problems the rainforest organisms are facing. The intimate relationships between the animals and plants were extremely fascinating. Afternoon well spent... More

Spent 4 hours walking with Neil in this magical piece of pristine rainforest. We were fascinated by Neil's commentary and insights into the history, complex biology and interconnectedness of living things in this ancient forest. Neal and his family have made their home here for 28 years and his knowledge is personal and lived, enriched by the research of scientists... More

Took the Greater Wilderness Experience tour with Neil and it was incredible! Saw a some reptiles, spiders and birds, and a huge variety of plants. However, the heart of the tour was Neil's great description of the lifecycle of the various animals and plants and how those lifecycles tie in with other animals and plants. It was great to see...

Thank you Angie for an absolutely wonderful experience in your particular piece of Paradise. The 2 hour walk in the rainforest was an eye opener, no we didn't see a cassowary ( we didn't see one for the whole time we spent in Cape Trib!), but we saw plenty of the tiniest spiders, green ants and their nests, Cassowary plums,...
