Our personalised private charter Fly/Drive Cooktown tours are curated to take our guests along on a journey of learning about the history of the past pioneers, Captain Cooks travel, Aboriginal culture and of course the world’s oldest living rainforests.

We can arrange to collect our Cooktown tour private charter groups from Cairns, Palm Cove and Port Douglas in our luxury coaches, to begin our day tour to experience some of the most amazing scenery and natural beauty in Australia.

Our Cooktown tour begins with a low level scenic flight from Cairns taking us on a coastal flight route that hugs two World Heritage-listed areas, the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest.

You will arrive in historic Cooktown early and be met by our tour guide and taken up to visit Grassy Hill for panoramic views of Cooktown, the Coral Sea and the famous Endeavour River duly named after Captain Cooks landing.

Enjoy the stunning scenery and experience the present day appeal and intriguing heritage of this iconic town before your return journey along the Mulligan Highway, the Outback of Tropical Far North Queensland before being transferred to your chosen accommodation.

We have been operating our unique luxury Cooktown tours for over 16 years and we look forward to welcoming you on board our new and improved tours we have for our private group charters.
