Tour Highlights

Your day will begin when one of our knowledgeable and friendly guides collect you from your hotel and we head north to the lower Barron Gorge National Park in the heart of Cairns city to visit Surprise Falls. This beautiful waterfall is 243 metres high and set amongst the beautiful lower Barron Gorge.

We then ascend the Lamb Range to the west of Cairns where you can appreciate spectacular views over Cairns city and out towards Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef

Next we will visit Lake Morris and Copperlode Dam; this is Cairns’ water supply and surrounded by World Heritage rainforest-clad mountains, it’s a unique and outstanding location to visit. We’ll stretch our legs and get some amazing photos from the lookout prior to crossing the dam wall where we begin our four-wheel drive journey

Our exclusive access permit lets us visit areas not open to the public. You want private and exclusive…. This is for you!!! Our track winds through some of the most amazing rainforest in the region and over the Great Dividing Range, which is one of the longest Mountain ranges in the world and Australia’s largest.

 Once we conquer the mighty Great Dividing Range we will continue through the rainforest, crossing several creek systems and stopping at a boardwalk for an interpretive overview of the rainforest from your guide. Here you will be introduced to the Clohesy River Fig, a truly unforgettable experience

Our next destination takes us from the lushness of the Wet Tropics rainforest to the beginning of Australia’s mighty Savannah country. You will truly be amazed at the rapid change in the forest types and scenery

From here we will venture back onto the sealed road and head back towards the Wet Tropic World Heritage area and into Kuranda Village. Here you will enjoy a short tour of the village , prior to taking the  Skyrail or Train return option* you’ll be dropped off and have around two hours to browse Kuranda with its market stalls, shops and wildlife parks.

Kuranda Afternoon Tour Inclusions:

3 hours free time in the village of Kuranda to explore the wonders of the markets, attractions and lunch in the many beautiful cafes or restaurants (own expense)
