Zip Lining through Ancient Rainforest

Why we Love Zip Lining in the Daintree!

Ascend to the top of the rainforest powered by a human hamster wheel for the best views, and fun, in the beating heart of the ancient Daintree 

The multi award winning Jungle Surfing Zip Lining Tours take you on a unique rainforest journey where your feet don’t touch the ground! 

Jungle Surfing is a series of eco-friendly tree platforms and flying fox zipline cables through the canopy of the Daintree Rainforest. The fully guided tours are a memorable mixture of exhilaration and education.

One of Queensland’s “must do” experiences, Jungle Surfing is suitable for all ages from 3 years to 103 years.  

Even  better, there are  twelve tours daily from Cape Tribulation to fit everyones travel plans.

Your tour will include the following highlights;

  • 2-hour ziplining jungle tour, from Cape Tribulation
  • Surf through the jungle on ziplines of varying lengths and heights
  • Learn about the flora and fauna of the rainforest from the knowledgeable guide
  • Enjoy great views of the Daintree Rainforest, and the Great Barrier Reef
  • Hear about eco-friendly features of this zipline attraction in the UNESCO-listed rainforest
  • Transfers to and from your Cape Tribulation accommodation
  • Tours last two hours, with over one hour in the rainforest canopy
  • Maximum 13 jungle surfers per tour with three guides
  • Six eco-friendly tree platforms plus the Human Hamster Wheel
  • Interpretive talk on each platform
  • Tour fully guided – our expert guides control your speed and flight from every platform
  • All equipment provided – harness & helmet



You’ll start with the “Human Hamster Wheel” – harnessing the energy of enthusiastic jungle surfers to hoist riders up to the first tree platform. 

Then you’ll glide through the different levels of the canopy, with bird’s eye views over the treetops, down to cascading streams and out to the Great Barrier Reef. 

The longest span is over 75 metres and the platforms range from 3.5m to 19.5m high, offering an “up-close and personal” experience with nature at her spectacular best.

The tour is fully guided – three guides to maximum 13 guests – and no experience is necessary.

The guides share their rainforest wit and wisdom with interpretive talks on each platform that also offers incredible photo opportunities.

The team use a unique system to control your flight, making this the only flying fox in the world where you can fly hands-free and carefree.  And the flight choice is yours – slow, fast or even upside-down, if you dare!
