The Daintree River: Continuing North & having enjoyed the stunning views of the Coral Sea, we cross this mighty Far North Queensland river via a vehicle ferry, many people regard this as a highlight in that you’ll get to see first hand the size and beauty of this awesome river.
Daintree Rainforest / Cape Tribulation: Having crossed the Daintree River, our journey now takes us through the ancient Daintree Rainforest, lush, green & stunning, before we enjoy a leg stretch and coffee at Cape Tribulation. Often referred to “where the rainforest meets the reef”.
The Bloomfield Track: The iconic 4WD Bloomfield Track is regarded by many as one of the “must do” 4WD journeys & accordingly is on many people’s bucket list. You’ll get to enjoy it in our air conditioned, purpose built 4WD coach!
Wujal Wujal Falls: Often referred to as the Bloomfield Falls, this cascade waterfall on the Bloomfield River is worth a look & we’ll do so after a short picturesque stroll.
The Lions Den Hotel: Another favourite is this historic old & original North Queensland pub, we’ll take time out for a “coldy” before arriving in Cooktown.
Grassy Hill Lookout: Arriving in Cooktown, you can’t help but be taken by the stunning beauty of this charming settlement. We’ll head straight to Grassy Hill Lookout where we’ll enjoy an amazing panorama of Cooktown, the Endeavour River & also the Coral Sea.
The Top Pub: It’s lunchtime & we’re paying, we’re off to another original North Queensland Hotel, The Cooktown Hotel, better known these as The Top Pub.
The James Cook Museum: Regarded by many as the best regional museum in Australia is our next stop & we’re paying your admission. You won’t want to miss this!
The Cooktown Botanical Gardens: It was here all those years ago that Sir Joseph Banks from Cook’s Endeavour collected some 325 plant specimens. Just beautiful!
Black Mountains: Having left Cooktown, on our return journey via the inland, outback route we’ll stop at the mysterious Black Mountains. Formed as a result of an enormous volcanic explosion some 200m years ago, it is quite extraordinary, Having said that, legends & stories abound, you decide!
Palmer River Goldfields: It dosen’t take a great deal of imagination to understand the harsh realities faced by the early pioneers and miners back in the day. A stunning landscape contrast to the coastal rainforests we travelled through earlier. We’ll stop for a number of classic photo opportunities.
