Reef and Rainforest Experience

Duration
5 Days
Prices From:
US$ 686

Get the best of both worlds with a reef and rainforest experience. Swim, snorkel or just relax at the Great Barrier Reef then discover Cape Tribulation, a true naturalist’s paradise.


This 5 day independent tour takes you to the Great Barrier Reef, then on to picturesque Cape Tribulation to explore the idyllic North Queensland rainforest.

Travel from Cairns to the very edge of the Great Barrier Reef, where you can snorkel, dive, or stay dry in an underwater observatory or semi-submersible craft. Whichever route you take, you’ll meet some of the 1200 species of fish and 500 species of coral that call this magical place home.

The name ‘Cape Tribulation’ might seem ironic as you immerse yourself in its tranquil rainforest. Actually, explorer James Cook christened it after his ship was damaged attempting to pass. Choose between a full or half day tour to explore Daintree National Park at your leisure, before returning to Cairns.
