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 -
Join Ocean 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 Surfing

(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 (2 hrs).
