This holiday starts in Cairns at 8.00am. The first of our tropical walks is the Barron Gorge National Park. From Glacier Rock, there are sweeping views of Trinity Inlet, the Coral Sea and the city of Cairns.
Travel the scenic coastal route to Mossman then across the Daintree River by ferry into the heart of the Daintree National Park. This is the first crocodile territory encountered during the tour, but it is also where the rainforest meets the reef. On the route to our rainforest retreat the distances are small, but the steep, rainforest-covered mountains and narrow roads reduce driving speeds, eventually averaging just 40 km/h. We’ll spend two nights in the heart of the rainforest in an area frequented by elusive cassowaries.
Walking: Easy to moderate / 12 km / 4 hrs
