Queensland Adventure: Rainforests & Waterfalls

Tabbed Group

Overview

Now's the time to explore Australia on your terms with this tour that's affordable for young travellers. Unplug and unwind for three sweet, spiritual days in Australia's northeast coast. Head out from scenic seaside Cairns toward the tropical Daintree Rainforest without missing a fun-filled beat, swimming in waterfalls at the Atherton Tablelands and climbing (the inaccurately named, as you'll soon discover) Mount Sorrow. With time for an interpretive walk at the otherworldly Mossman Gorge to learn more about Aboriginal history, culture, and contemporary life, this trip gets you into the heart and soul of the land.

Itinerary

Day 1: Cairns/Cape Tribulation

Arrive early for your welcome meeting.

Let the scenery guide you to some new adventures. Wave “see ya later” to Cairns before heading north to Cape Tribulation early this morning. Along the way; hop out, stretch those legs, and explore Mossman Gorge — home to the oldest continuously surviving rainforest on earth. Then follow an Indigenous guide through the Daintree Rainforest on an interpretive walk to better understand the lasting relationship of the Kuku Yalanju people with their natural environment.

Head north to Cape Tribulation. Stop en route to explore Mossman Gorge and take an interpretive walk through the Daintree Rainforest.

Day 2: Cape Tribulation/Yungaburra

There’s more to discover in Cape Tribulation today! Explore more of the rainforest or chill out poolside and catch some rays in the place where the Daintree Rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef. Canter along the beach on horseback, trek to Mason’s secret (croc-free) swimming hole, or reward that sweet tooth craving with some exotic fruit ice cream from Daintree Ice Cream Company. Then it’s time to move on to Yungaburra in the Atherton Tablelands for the night. Think boho-boutiques, farm-to-table cafes, and eerie volcanic lakes as set off on foot to get to know this historical place.

Includes: Breakfast

Day 3: Yungaburra/Cairns

Today is full of possibilities! Stop at Lake Eacham, a volcanic crater lake (make sure you have those swimmers packed to take a dip), before continuing the adventure as you visit some of the best waterfalls in the Atherton Tablelands; Josephine Falls and Millaa Millaa Falls. Later on, go for a swim with your pals in the waters of Babinda Boulders. Grab a photo with the group, have a few laughs, plot your move to this gorgeous oasis, and then get ready to travel back to Cairns.

Tour ends upon arrival.
