This 2-day safari adventure departs from Cairns, taking you up to Cape Tribulation via the Daintree Rainforest.

This 4WD trek is all about enjoying Australia’s natural beauty and rich Aboriginal heritage. As your exploration continues, you’ll see how the two are intertwined and inseparable. Enjoy homemade morning tea and lunch before settling into your overnight accommodation in Cooktown. Explore this historic town the following day, perhaps visiting the James Cook Museum, or take a heritage walk along the Endeavour River.
