Detailed Description

The tropics provide a majestic destination filled with jungle life and crystal-clear water, marvelous culture and relaxed ambiance. Your 7-day tour will take you from shoreline to the rainforest canopy in Queensland, Australia. Your thrilling exploration will begin with your arrival at Cairns Airport as your private transfer will greet you before escorting you north to the charming streets of Port Douglas and your luxurious resort-style hotel that overlooks the edges of the Coral Sea. The remainder of the day is yours to settle into the style and elegance of the white sand beaches and rainforest-clad landscape. Wake the next morning to board a catamaran for a full day tour on the Great Barrier Reef to visit a selection of marvelous dive and snorkel sites for incredible visions of life found beneath the Coral Sea.

The next day, you will board a Skyrail gondola for a 360-degree view of the land and sea as you ride into the jungle expanse. Once in the town of Kuranda, you can visit the art galleries or the butterfly sanctuary, or you could also hang out with kangaroos and koalas at the Kuranda Koala Gardens. Return to the waters the next day for a visit to Green Island. The fabulous secluded shores overlook a series of protected reefs, and you can blend relaxing on white sand beaches with exploring the coral and the aquatic life that edges the sprouting rainforest before you return to Port Douglas. The following day, your guide will meet you at your hotel and lead you into the dense Daintree Rainforest to explore the mangrove trees, the floodplains, and the Aboriginal culture around Cape Tribulation. Experience a smoking ceremony and learn to hunt the crabs that hide in the mud.
