This action-packed introduction to the region includes a full day tour to Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge including a Daintree River cruise, a full day excursion to Agincourt Reef, where you will have the opportunity to experience the reef from the comfort of a pontoon. Here you may snorkel, dive or stay dry and view the underwater world from a semi-submersible.

Also included is a trip to the rainforest town of Kuranda and a visit to the award-winning Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. Your base for 6-nights is the laid-back oasis of Port Douglas, a colourful tropical town fringed by sandy beaches, followed by the cosmopolitan hub of Cairns.
