One of our most popular half day Airlie Beach tours is our 5 hour rainforest and waterfall guided hiking tour in the mountains and forests behind the shores of the Great Barrier Reef. Come along and join us we love showing off our rainforests.

When you think of a holiday at Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays you think Great Barrier Reef but seriously there is so much more to do and see out in the mountains and rainforests behind Airlie Beach.

Our guided bush walking tours take you to some of the most spectacular scenic lookouts, splendid waterfalls and tropical rainforests full of birds, butterflies and other native Australian animals.

The rainforest is a place where you can breathe and take in the peace and serenity of your surroundings to re-invigorate your body  

Our Airlie Beach bush walking and hiking tours cater for individuals or groups up to 11 guests at a time over a 5 hour period making your walking tour highly personalised.

Airlie Beach Guided Hiking and Walking Tours

This tour will take you on a drive out of Airlie Beach and deeper in to Conway National Park where we start our walk for the day.

We all alight from the air-conditioned coach and begin our hiking tour deep in ancient, tropical rainforest on the lookout for unique flora and fauna.

Your hiking guide will be on the lookout for Paradise Kingfishers flying beneath the great forest canopy and other shy native Australian animals.

A wide, slightly downhill track will take us through the rainforest before veering off towards Wompoo Way - a tranquil clearing with beautiful creek and the chance of spotting a Wompoo Fruit Dove or Ulysses Butterfly - the perfect spot for a picnic lunch.

After taking a moment to rest and truly appreciate this magical place, it’s an uphill walk to complete our 8km* circuit.

Within just a short drive we'll find ourselves at Cedar Creek Falls; nature’s perfect backdrop for an afternoon perched on rock watching turtles, looking for that perfect angle to capture the waterfall on camera or enjoying a refreshing, invigorating swim beneath the waterfall.

Please note a good level of fitness is required for this walk which is 8km in total with uphill sections.

And also please also take in to account the warmer conditions which are common in Tropical Queensland when considering if this hiking tour is for you.

**the amount of water flowing at the waterfall is heavily dependent on the season. Please be prepared for no water to be falling throughout dry season. There is however, always water at the base for swimming and the chance of a visit from friendly turtles (especially when the falls are quieter during dry season).
