I can see other people have said the same thing as me in their reviews... YES... "Steve" is an awesome tour guide and on that alone, makes this a worthy day trip of your hard earned cash! This tour is well planned and thought out. Plenty of time is allowed at each location and loads of information, stories and facts given out to you by Steve throughout the journey. The bus is comfortable and never did we feel we were amongst big crowds. The tour comprised of look out points from the Great Dividing Range, a beautiful crater Lake Barrine, rainforest walks and waterfalls such as Millaa Millaa and the Babinda Boulders. If you pay for all the inclusions (Option A Tour) which I highly recommend you have freshly baked scones at Lake Barrine Tea House for morning tea and a 45minute informative and fun boat cruise on the lake. I saw the most fresh water turtles I have ever seen in my life on that cruise! If you don't include the cruise you are left alone to take a rainforest walk around the lake. A full buffet Italian lunch at Roscoe's at Innisfail is also included in the full inclusions tour. You have so much to choose from, pizza, pastas, salads and for those who like it a little less adventurous, hot chips, chicken and wedges. All fresh and hot just waiting for the group. One of the best lunch inclusions on a tour I have taken in a long while! The afternoon is spent at Paronella Park. You have an included 45 minute tour about it's history (this can be taken in different languages) and also free time to get that perfect shot of the Spanish castles and botanical gardens. So sit back, relax and stare at the diverse stunning scenery as it changes from rolling green hills and farmland to Australian classic bushland, from small country towns, thick lush tropical rainforest and banana, paw paw, lychee, coffee & tea plantations while Steve takes care of you... Northern Experience Eco Tours is definitely worth it.

Our tour guide Xavier did a great job in both showing us around the various sites and explaining to us all he knew about the nature around us. I would absolutely recommend this trip if you're visiting the Cairns area.

Yesterday my husband and twin children (nearly 10 yrs) ventured out on a full days tour through the Atherton tablelands stopping at many beautiful places. The highlight was paranella park steeped with a romantic and clever history. But for us, every step of the way was amazing. Waterfalls, river cruise, wildlife, swimming holes, castles and even morning tea and lunch were fantastic. This was all wrapped up by an engaging and insightful tour guide who's passion only just outweighed his knowledge of the area. Brett - was fantastic!!!! We highly recommend this day out to a region many people don't bother visiting - do it!

About Palm Cove
Where the foothills of the rainforest clad mountains meet the palm fringed beaches of the Coral Sea nestles Cairns' premier beach destination - Palm Cove.
A dawn walk in the ever present company of brightly coloured lorikeets, kookaburras, flocks of sulphur crested cockatoos, wallabies and rare green tree frogs, belies the fact that Palm Cove is just 20 minutes north of the Cairns International Airport.
Palm Cove, your ultimate lifestyle destination, is both affordable and caters for all accommodation needs, from international standard resorts to self catering holiday apartments, all carefully positioned amongst majestic melaleuca trees interspersed with coconut palms and tropical gardens.
Wherever you stay in Palm Cove you have access to the World Heritage rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef boarding from the Palm Cove Pier or you can simply enjoy nature's playground with an exciting challenge and adventures like white water rafting, canoeing, horse riding or trekking. Those who are less energetic can enjoy a fascinating glimpse of this ancient world dominated by pre-historic tree ferns, travelling by four-wheel drives, rainforest cableway, train or coach.
Palm Cove, with its distinctive character and intimate ambience, its old world charm with splashes of tropical colour, its Australian architecture, its idyllic setting, glorious sunshine, serenity and security - will enchant you! So take a leisurely stroll along the picturesque esplanade and enjoy the experience of the village shopping precinct with its many specialty shops. Take a swim on the patrolled beach, walk to the tranquil beaches of Clifton or Kewarra.
It's your holiday... floral scents, flashes of gigantic butterflies and the tiniest of brilliantly coloured sun birds, balmy nights and a magnificent beach front setting - this is Palm Cove. So whether you do it all or chose to do nothing, Palm Cove will leave you with a lifetime of memories to treasure.
Palm Cove is Cairns' most popular holiday beach, for locals and visitors. Its long sandy beach is lined by tropical coconut trees on one side and the clear, blue waters of the Coral Sea on the other. The beachfront esplanade is shaded by ancient paperbark trees and peppered with hotels, restaurants and retail opportunities. Cairns and its international and domestic airport is a 40-minute drive south, the rainforest is on the mountains behind you and the Great Barrier Reef lies offshore, waiting to be explored. A stunning destination in paradise.
