  • You may spot the endangered Cassowary. Described as a giant prehistoric turkey, this bird is found only in the FNQ rainforests and is very shy. An equally amazing but more reliable sight is the 500-year-old giant Cathedral Fig Tree. 
  • The morning and afternoon tea features locally grown teas and coffee, brewed fresh, so make sure you sample it!

A packed day viewing natural beauty in lush World Heritage listed rainforest awaits you. Swim in a volcanic crater lake, take a dip under breathtaking waterfalls and slide down a natural waterslide as you journey through the picturesque scenery of the Atherton Tablelands.

Often there’s great added bonuses on the tour, with other stops thrown in or you may spot rare wildlife native to Tropical North Queensland such as the Cassowary or Tree Kangaroo.
