Cairns Tour Package – 4 Separate Day Tours

  • DAY 1. TABLELANDS WATERFALLS, RAINFOREST & PARONELLA PARK

We ascend towards the Atherton Tablelands, stopping to appreciate the dramatic valley landscape and coastal vistas from Heales Lookout.  Lake Barrine, in Crater Lakes National Park, was etched in the landscape by volcanic activity more than 10,000 years ago and is now home to thriving life in and around its clear waters. Take a rainforest walk with our accredited guide to the towering twin kauri pines, minding to keep your eyes peeled for the abundant bird and butterfly life above, and even turtles, eels and water monitors in the waters below. We pause our journey for Devonshire Tea at Lake Barrine Teahouse, sharing our discoveries over freshly-baked scones and locally-sourced tea and coffee, before a short drive to historic Yungaburra, where photo opportunities abound amid the 18 heritage-listed buildings.

On the outskirts of Yungaburra we enter under the cool canopy of Curtain Fig National Park, our expert guide sharing the unlikely story of how the 600+ year-old Curtain Fig Tree came to rest in its spectacular formation above the elevated rainforest boardwalk. Onwards via the historic dairy town of Malanda, we reach another must-do rainforest destination on the Atherton Tablelands — Milla Milla Falls. Surrounded by lush tropical rainforest, the falls are an iconic image of Far North Queensland, not to mention an essential place to swim and shower as the cool rainforest waters cascade from 20 metres above.

A refreshing morning swim behind us, we wind our way to the coastal town of Innisfail for a lunch stop, before priority entry into the heritage-listed gardens and architectural delights of Paronella Park. A guided tour reveals several fascinating chapters of this park’s rich 90-year history amongst the colourful tropical gardens, then you’re free to explore the rest of its treasure trove of offerings — Mena Creek and Theresa Falls, the miniature bats of the Tunnel of Love, and you can even feed the fish and platypuses!

  • DAY 2. CAIRNS TO THE GREAT BARRIER REEF

The Great Barrier Reef is an international icon and now it’s your time to experience it for yourself. This amazing full day tour takes you to the Great Barrier Reef, with up to 6 hours spent exploring it from above and below the water.

After a cold drink, or local tea and coffee, you’ll take a guided tour of the Gorge, with the option of swimming in the crystal-clear waters. Afterwards, enjoy a restaurant lunch with choice of meals, before we continue our adventure with a 1-hour cruise on the mighty Daintree River.

Then we head into the Daintree National Park and explore the rainforest, on a guided boardwalk tour. We visit the famous Cape Tribulation Beach, where the reef meets the rainforest, and stop by the Daintree Ice-Cream Company in the afternoon. Here you have the option of purchasing a tropical fruit ice-cream (at your own expense), before we head back to Port Douglas, the beaches and Cairns. BYO towel if you want to swim at Mossman Gorge.

  • DAY 4. SKYRAIL RAINFOREST CABLEWAY – KURANDA VILLAGE – KURANDA SCENIC RAILWAY
