What to Expect

Explore the Atherton Tablelands, Daintree Rainforest and Cooktown on this exclusive 5 Day 4WD eco-tour.

Day one begins with a visit to the iconic Babinda Boulders, a popular swimming hole with its cascading waterfalls and great history – the perfect place for a refreshing dip surrounded by lush rainforest. The adventure continues when you journey to the Heritage Listed Paronella Park. With splendid waterfalls bursting from Mena Creek, this historical castle is a true jewel in the rainforest. Feeling hungry? Time to indulge in a local lunch at the extraordinary Mungalli Farmhouse.


The group will then make their way through the diverse landscape of the Atherton Tablelands to the remarkable Milla Milla Waterfall Circuit. After a visit to three spectacular waterfalls, unwind and relax with an overnight stay at Malanda Lodge.

Departing your accommodation early on Day 2, you'll then head to Herberton Village Museum. After exploring a collection of historical buildings, you'll venture to the man-made Crystal Caves and journey through tunnels built to feature million-year-old natural crystals and prehistoric fossils.

Day 3 of your trip includes a visit to the Chillagoe Caves as well as the Granite Gorge, plus a tour of the limestone caves at the Chillagoe-Montana National Park. Considered a haven for wildlife, Chillagoe includes dozens of unique bird and animal species. The Chillagoe Caves have even revealed fossilised bones belonging to crocodiles, as well as extinct giant kangaroos and wombats who roamed the land years ago.


Following Chillagoe the tour moves onwards to Mossman Gorge to enjoy the large granite boulders that are surrounded by beautiful rainforest. Then, cross the Daintree River on the famous cable ferry and adventure through the Daintree Rainforest to Alexandra Lookout. Providing picture-perfect views of where the Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef meet, you'll stay at the unique Ferntree Rainforest Lodge where you will also enjoy a meal at the Cassowary Restaurant surrounded by the beautiful jungle.


Experience the wonder of a gigantic 500-year-old fig tree on Day 4 of your trip, before crossing the cool, clear waters of Emmagen Creek. Then, venture onto the treacherous Bloomfield Track and explore the cascading Wujal Wujal Waterfalls. The adventure continues up to the historic Cooktown to the imposing mountain range Black Mountain made up of massive granite boulders. Home to unique wildlife and rich in Aboriginal culture, there's so much waiting to be explored here! Then, refresh and unwind with lunch and drinks in Cooktown Village and watch the sunset at the Grassy Hill lookout. Finish the day with an overnight stay at local Cooktown accommodation.


Your final day on the tour will see you journey back to Cairns or Port Douglas, but not before stopping off at various secluded beaches and swimming holes. Here, you will have the opportunity for a swim, should you wish to go for a refreshing dip before returning home.
