Arrive around midday and then spend the afternoon exploring the
Cape Tribulation area on foot. Visit the Bat House to learn about
the Daintree Rainforest, and do Self
guided Walk No. 1 - Myall Beach and Cape Tribulation Lookout.
If you are interested in rare and exotic fruit, book a place for
the 2 pm fruit
tasting at Cape Trib Exotic Fruit.
Day Two -
Safari and spend the morning snorkelling on the reef. You return
to Cape Trib around 12.30, so that you have time to do the Dubuji
boardwalk in the afternoon or go Jungle
(We recommend doing a reef trip from Cape Tribulation
rather than Cairns or Port Douglas as the reef is only 25 minutes
offshore, the trip is more personal, with a small group, and the
reef is excellent - and only a metre below the surface)
Day Three -
Depart from Cape Tribulation by 8.30 am and drive south to the Daintree
Discovery Centre. By midday you will be ready to head south
and have plenty of time to reach Port Douglas (1 1/2 hrs) or Cairns
