Climb on board an all-terrain vehicle and be taken on a discovery of Daintree National Park and Cooktown!

Departing from Cairns, you will travel along the coast towards Daintree National Park, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cross the Daintree River on a ferry before heading to the heart of the rainforest. Go off the beaten track as you discover the magnificent scenery of Queensland.

For lunch, you will stop off at one of the oldest pubs in the Australian bush. In the afternoon, you will head off again to discover the Black Mountain National Park. Upon arrival at Cooktown, you can take in the panoramic views of the town and its surrounding areas. Then, explore the town at your own pace.

You will then head back either in the all-terrain vehicle or by plane. From the plane, you will have a breathtaking view of the coast of Daintree and the Great Barrier Reef. If you choose the all-terrain vehicle option, you will explore a variety of exotic landscapes.
