Just imagine visiting a place that has escaped and untouched by the crazy world of urban development. This is God's country in Far North Queensland, Australia.

Its age makes it the oldest tropical lowland rainforests on earth.  That's some big boast!  Much of the Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation still remains undiscovered by modern man and so continues to exist like it has done since the beginning of its time.

Education comes alive as your tour guide unravels the history of Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation as the tour unfolds at several stop points to really show off the wonders of this magical place.

Daintree Rainforest & Cape Tribulation Full Day Tour 

Immerse yourself in the luxuriant foliage as vines drape down to the forest floor – very tempting to swing on them et al Tarzan.  Stand under ancient fern leaves spreading like giant umbrellas.

You can almost tangibly feel the energy as every tendril and stem fights to reach the light and the moisture of the rainforest canopy.  This tumbling foliage fills 1,200 sq. km and is the largest rainforest area on the Australian continent.



Port Douglas Cape Tribulation and Daintree Rainforest Tours

The forward thinking so called hippies of the eighties were the initial saviors of the now world Heritage Cape Tribulation and Daintree Rainforests as they recognized early on the extreme eco value of the regions rare and highly endangered and somewhat pre-historic animals and ancient rainforest trees that needed to be preserved for future generations to come. They fought the Government who just wanted to make a short term living out of wood chipping these rainforests to the ground and they fought the bulldozers and the men that wanted to destroy this magnificent wild region.

Today people from all over the world come to Port Douglas to see these world re-known rainforests and the creatures that live here. Scientists, Archeologists, Ornithologists and every other oligist visits this area as the rainforests are still hiding lots of medicines that can help to cure cancer and other illnesses and they are still discovering bird species, insect species and lots of other plants and flora and fauna never seen before.

Tourists now flock to see the beauty of the Daintree and Cape Tribulation rainforests and in doing so they are helping to preserve these rainforests and they are providing Australia with a lot more currency than the short term thinking of the Australian Government and their wood chipping plans. Tourists can canoe in the pristine rivers and kayak along the rugged coastline to snorkel of islands that lay just off shore. They can wander along the boardwalks and see wildlife that does not exist in other parts of the world and they can swim under pure waterfalls and wander the deserted rainforest lined beaches.
