Reef, Rainforest and Wildlife Drive

A Daintree self drive adventure offers everything you could possibly want from a vacation of a lifetime.

The Daintree is the place to immerse yourself in nature and disconnect from the modern world. It’s a raw, wild, ancient environment that resembles a real-life Jurassic Park, where the rainforest meets the reef, mountains scrape the sky and life moves more slowly.

This package includes the best activities to make the most of self driving to the Daintree which includes a crocodile spotting river cruise, scientist led jungle night walks and spend half a day snorkelling the outer reef with the award winning Ocean Safari.

Also included in the package is a free driving guide and itinerary showing you where to stop and what to see between Cairns and Cape Tribulation.
