Cairns and Beaches » *Rainforest and Reef Tour in 1 Day (#526)

Type: Packages - 1 Day Packages

This is the perfect tour for those people that are short on time and want to see both the Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef in a 1 day.

Departure Dates:  Departs Daily. From Cairns hotels around 07:00am Return to Cairns 5.00pm

Your day will begin when one of our knowledgeable and friendly guide collects  you from your hotel and we head north to the lower Barron Gorge National Park in the heart of Cairns city to visit Surprise Falls. This beautiful waterfall is 243 metres high and set amongst the beautiful lower Barron Gorge.

We then ascend the Lamb Range to the west of Cairns where you can appreciate spectacular views over Cairns city and out towards Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef

Next we will visit Lake Morris and Copperlode Dam; this is Cairns’ water supply and surrounded by World Heritage rainforest-clad mountains, it’s a unique and outstanding location to visit. We’ll stretch our legs and get some amazing photos from the lookout prior to crossing the dam wall where we begin our four-wheel drive journey

Our exclusive access permit lets us visit areas not open to the public. You want private and exclusive…. This is for you!!! Our track winds through some of the most amazing rainforest in the region and over the Great Dividing Range, which is one of the longest Mountain ranges in the world and Australia’s largest.

Once we conquer the mighty Great Dividing Range we will continue through the rainforest, crossing several creek systems and stopping at a boardwalk for an interpretive overview of the rainforest from your guide. Here you will be introduced to the Clohesy River Fig, a truly unforgettable experience

Our next destination takes us from the lushness of the Wet Tropics rainforest to the beginning of Australia’s mighty Savannah country. You will truly be amazed at the rapid change in the forest types and scenery

From here we will venture back onto the sealed road and head back towards the Wet Tropic World Heritage area and into Kuranda Village. Here you will enjoy a short tour of the village or if you are taking the Skyrail or Train return option* you’ll be dropped off and have around two hours to browse Kuranda with its market stalls, shops and wildlife parks. If you do not have this option we will continue to the Upper Barron Gorge National Park, where we will first stop at the Wrights lookout for a stunning photo overlooking the Barron Gorge and back towards the coastal plains and Cairns City. We will then take a very short drive to the Barron Falls lookout to view possibly the most famous waterfall in Northern Queensland -- the mighty Barron Falls.

Finally our day is coming to an end and we will start to head back towards Cairns via the Wet Tropic World Heritage drive on the Kuranda range, stopping at the Henry Ross Lookout overlooking the northern beach suburbs of Cairns and back out towards the Coral sea. Finally, we will then drop you back off at the Reef Fleet Terminal for your afternoon tour on Green Island

Green Island is 'The' tropical destination with white sand and palm trees and only around 50 minutes off shore from Cairns. You do this tour in a  fast, air-conditioned catamaran. You'll receive a free glass bottom boat tour or free snorkel hire on the island. You can also upgrade to a semi-submarine reef viewing tour.

On Green Island you have the options to swim, snorkel, walk through the Island on the newly constructed walks, relax with a cold drink and more. There is a bar and small shops on the Island and locker hire is available.

You will return to the Cairns Marina where you can stroll back to your hotel.
