Kuranda Train - Rainforest Station - Skyrail

Our journey this morning is on the picturesque Kuranda train that climbs the Atherton Tablelands through many curves and bridges. Arriving in Kuranda there is some time in the village before we go to the Rainforest Station for a ride in an Army Duck.

to the base below. Transfer back to hotel.

DAY 4
Friday 21st August 2020
Great Barrier Reef Cruise

We have come to Cairns to explore the Great Barrier Reef. Our experience in the cruises available for the people who enjoy these tours is a “soft adventure”, so we have selected the Sailing Catamaran “Ocean Spirit” to Michelmas Cay. This is a sand island to make swimming and snorkelling easy, or you can snorkel in deeper water. They have a semisubmersible boat for underwater viewing and of course, a beautiful tropical barbecue served for lunch. Dinner tonight (after a huge lunch) is at your own choice and cost as you may just want to have a snack.

Cape Tribulation & Daintree

Experience the best of the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation plus the world-famous Breakfast With The Birds at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas. Enjoy a tropical buffet breakfast and the chance to get up close to and interact with an array of tropical birds. Cross the iconic Daintree River on the cable ferry to Cape Tribulation, where the rainforest meets the reef. After a tropical lunch, we wander along the palm-fringed beach and take a guided rainforest boardwalk tour. Enjoy stunning rainforest views at Alexandra Lookout and enjoy a Daintree River Cruise to search for wild Estaurine Crocodiles.
