A full-day tour with a local guide to the north of Cairns along the Coral Sea coast: crocodiles in the wild, beaches, Mossman Gorge and Port Douglas.
The tour starts at 9am in Cairns (The arrangements for Palm Cove, Pt Douglas, etc. could be slightly different. Please enquire).
Your local guide will pick you up and you will go along one of the most picturesque sections of the Coral Sea road to the north of Cairns towards the Daintree National Park, one of the oldest rainforests in the world. First you will visit a crocodile farm (Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures) established right on a river with crocodiles. Here large Australian crocodiles (up to 6 metres long) continue to live in their natural habitat while being also used by farmers who collect their eggs from their nests to raise new crocodiles. Here you’ll have a ride on a small boat in the river teeming with wild crocodiles, and a local ranger will be feeding them. You’ll see crocodiles jump out of the water to get the food and “play” with the ranger. It’s an unbelievable sight!
Then the guide will take you to the beautiful Mossman Gorge located in the middle of a jungle not far from the Daintree National Park. This is part of the area listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site for its beauty and special nature values. You will have a walk in the forest and will hear interesting information about the ancient wet tropics, see forest dragons, listen to the birds singing, swim in the pure and transparent waters of a mountain river in the jungle.
Next to the gorge, there is an Aboriginal village, and you’ll see it on your way to the gorge. And Aborigines are also guardians of the gorge, and they work in a tourist centre nearby. There you could buy souvenirs, local tea or coffee, and have a cup of coffee in a cosy dining hall.
Then you will visit Mossman, a typical small town of the Australian outback. Half of its population are Aborigines. If you like, we could stop there for some time and visit a local pub and have an Australian beer or wine, and, if you already feel hungry, have lunch. You could also have a chat with locals who are always happy to see tourists.
After that, we’ll go to Port Douglas, a famous resort town, where you will walk along a picturesque main street, visit a nice little church, have a walk on the famous 4-mile beach, will climb to a lookout with a breathtaking view. And if you haven’t had lunch in Mossman, you could have lunch in a nice pub in Port Douglas.
The last stop we’ll have before returning to Cairns will be Rex lookout. Here you could take impressive pictures of the sea and the mountains.
Already in Cairns, we’ll go through the most popular beach in Cairns, Palm Cove, which has a nice view over Double Island and Scout Island. After the tour, your guide will take you to your hotel.
