On my first visit to Port Douglas, I was very keen to do the day trip to Cape Tribulation in the world heritage listed Daintree Rainforest. I considered doing a self-drive trip but decided I would get more out of the day by travelling with an experienced guide. I travelled with Daintree Tours in a very comfortable mini-bus handled expertly by our guide.
We stopped at Mossman Gorge , followed by a number of forest walks where we were able to view the trees, vines and bushes making up the rain forest.
At Cape Tribulation we wandered on to the beach and had a close up encounter with a local goanna. A lunch at a local resort was included and a bonus was a rare sighting of a cassowary close to the resort. On the return trip, we stopped for a small boat cruise on Cooper Creek to check out the resident crocodiles. We found 4 salties and watched as they cruised along the mangrove trees.
Our guide had an excellent knowledge of the trees, animals and history of the area and added considerably to our knowledge of rainforest fauna and flora. We were dropped back to or apartment after an outstanding day trip.
