On this one-of-a-kind, breathtaking walking trek through Cairns Rainforest and Australian bushland, you'll discover rare native wildlife, swim in mountain streams, climb granite boulders and soak up stunning scenery.
Your hiking tour experience will begin nice and early as your travel an hour west of Cairns to Dinden National Park on the Great Dividing Range, where your trek begins.
Your local, accredited hiking guide tour leader will lead you through iconic Australian bushland and rainforest winderness as you walk towards Lambs Head, the stunning peak of the Lamb Mountain Range in the Atherton Tablelands.
There, among a setting of ancient granite boulders, you’ll be witness to a truly unforgettable panorama of valleys, lowlands, ocean and peaks.
There will be plenty of fresh fruit and snacks along the way to keep you energised; and once you’ve conquered the summit, you’ll be invited to cool off in the clear waters of Davies Creek.
Enjoy the mountain waters, before resting on the banks of the river to indulge in a picnic lunch.
From the base to the summit, your Cairns mountain hiking and walking tour will be a day full of action and natural beauty that will refresh your senses and give you a great appreciation of Mother Natures gifts of fauna and flora and her native Australian wildlife.
Rising with the sun and chirping birds, you will travel an hour west of Cairns to stunning Dinden National Park.
There will be fresh fruit to snack on before the hike commences, and a presentation on some of the amazing sights you’ll encounter during the day.
Your friendly local guide is a passionate ambassador for Far North Queensland as well as an accredited world heritage Wet Tropics guide.
You’ll begin your 10km hike at the base of the magnificent Lamb Ranges, found in Dinden National Park behind Cairns.
The trail leads you through Australian bushland and ancient rainforest, and as you climb the elevated paths you’ll notice the air becomes crisp and void of humidity.
You'll be immersed in the sounds, sights and smells of the rainforest – with no civilisation in sight you’ll feel like you’re really a part of the ‘bush’.
The rainforest tapers as you encounter a landscape of huge granite boulders that set the stage for the most extraordinary view from Lambs Head (Kahlpahlim Rock). Standing upon this granite dome, 1,300 metres above sea level, you’ll be awed by the panorama of Cairns, the ocean and its valleys, stretching all the way to Copperload Dam.
The Wet Tropics of the Great Barrier Reef region are part of the oldest rainforest on our planet, and the plant and animal species that inhabit the area are just as rare.
You’ll see iconic Australian gums and eucalyptus, along with an array of figs, ferns, palms and cycads in this magnificent savannah bushland.
This area is home to about a third of Australia's 315 mammal species - 13 of these species are found nowhere else in the world.
The region is also home to a quarter of Australia's frogs, a little over a third of the country's freshwater fish, and nearly half of Australia's birds - that's more than 370 different species.
It could be your lucky day to spot a water dragon, tree kangaroo, honeyeater, or a glorious Amethystine python.
Nature enthusiasts and bird lovers alike will enjoy this experience.
After experienceing breathtaking views across the Wet Tropics panorama from Lambs Head plateau, you’ll descend down the mountainside to Davies Creek.
This creek boasts its own waterfalls and is the destination for your picnic lunch today.
This stunning, calm water will be an inviting location for a swim or to simply on the shoreline.
Enjoy local fresh tropical fruits and produce.
Along the walking trail, you’ll be led to the famed Clohesy River Fig Tree Boardwalk.
Set among open woodlands and savannah habitat, this unique walk showcases a natural phenomenon - the towering strangler fig.
Though the wooden, sun dappled boardwalks are just 300 metres long, they wind around this stunning giant to highlight each angle.
You can even veer off the hiking trail and explore the cathedral shaped interior and billowing, curtain-like root system of this huge tree.
Informational placards are dotted along the walk, so you can read some fascinating facts about this world heritage flora as you explore.
