Independent with Sightseeing tours



Day 01: Port Douglas
Independent arrival in Port Douglas and day at leisure.

Day 02: Port Douglas – Jungle night walk
Enjoy a day at leisure before going on a night walk through the Jungle. As the sun sets over the trees, the animals stir and the forest comes to life. There are no sounds of the city, just inky blackness and the pulse of the rainforest as it chirps, trickles, rustles and breathers. This small group interpretive tour takes you deep into our ancient forest to experience the nocturnal world. It's a singing, bustling world, far removed from man's dominance over the earth, and we'll introduce you to a weird and wonderful cast of characters who live together to create this grand circle of life. With over 50% of all species endemic to this continent found in this region, it is blessed with a wide variety of wildlife. In addition to the frequent sightings of sleeping birds and rainforest dragons, we regularly encounter forest mammals including bats and possums, many species of spiders and insects plus beautiful snakes.

Day 03: Captain Cook Highway – Cape Tribulation – Daintree
Journey to Port Douglas via the Captain Cook Highway, one of Australia's most scenic coastal drives. Arrive at Australia's leading environmental wildlife experience and enjoy the delicious breakfast with the birds buffet. Join on a Guided Tour through one of the three environments: the rainforest, the wetlands, and the grasslands. Wander along elevated boardwalks and observe up close a huge range of flora and fauna as birds fly and roam freely. See rare animals such as the endangered Southern Cassowary and the Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroo. Have your photo taken holding a koala, snake, or small crocodile. Spot crocodiles, tree snakes, water birds and other wildlife as you journey through the mangroves on a Daintree River Cruise. Travel along the rainforest-fringed Cape Tribulation Road through Daintree National Park, a magnificent wilderness region, as your guide explains the area's history. Stop for a Tropical Picnic Lunch at a picturesque setting. Join a Guided Rainforest Walk along a boardwalk with great photo opportunities, and then stroll along the beach with spectacular views of this iconic World Heritage Listed site. Afternoon Tea is served before departing for your return journey. Cross the Daintree River on cable-driven ferry then head back to your Port Douglas accommodation. Lunch included

Day 04: Outer Barrier Reef
Cruise on Quicksilver's 'Wavepiercer'. You can choose whether to snorkel or stay dry and explore the stunning reef from the comfort of a Quicksilver sub, just one metre underwater. Diving is available at an extra cost. Watch the fish feeding from Quicksilver's unique underwater viewing platform and underwater observatory. Enjoy morning and afternoon tea and a tropical smorgasbord lunch. Visit the Agincourt Reef which lies within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and is one of the World Heritage areas. The reef lagoon at Agincourt offers ideal swimming and snorkelling.
A qualified marine biologist will help you unravel the mystery and magic of this magnificent Great Barrier Reef.
