Daintree Rainforest Tours & Cooktown 4WD Tours

Tropical North Queensland is the Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and the World Heritage Listed Daintree National Park. Daintree National Park is comprised of two sections—Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation. The crystal-clear waters of the Mossman River cascade over granite boulders in Mossman Gorge while Cape Tribulation features rainforest-clad mountains that sweep down to long sandy beaches. Explore both these areas on your tour of Discovery to the Daintree Rainforest.

Cooktown is 246km north of Cairns via the 4WD only Bloomfield Track -through the heart of the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest. One of Australia’s most historically significant townships, Cooktown is the location where Captain James Cook spending almost seven weeks repairing his vessel the HM Bark Endeavour. Some of the most extraordinary discoveries and interactions with local Aboriginal people occurred here in 1770 but….the history is just the beginning!

Cooktown provides something for everyone including exquisite botanic gardens, heritage listed building and museums, beaches, waterfalls and Aboriginal Rock Art Tours. A truly unique travel destination.

Cooktown is close to my heart as I owned Adventure North Australia, Cooktown 4WD Adventures for 15 years and sold the company in May 2019. Cooktown is a unique off the tourist beaten track destination and well worth the visit.
