At Mossman Gorge you may swim in the cool pristine waters or join your driver for a guided rainforest walk.

Back into the comfort of our four wheel drive vehicle, we drive to the Daintree River where morning tea is provided before embarking a one hour Daintree river cruise. The Daintree River is home to a diverse ecosystem and the cruise guide will help you spot some of the wildlife including birds, snakes, frogs, flying foxes and in the cooler months, crocodiles can be seen lazing on the muddy banks.

After the river cruise, we travel up to the spectacular Alexander Range Lookout before arriving at our private lunch location at The Daintree Entomological Museum.
