Rainforest Wonders and Timeless Tea

Embark on a journey filled with nature and rare wildlife encounters. Begin your adventure in the heart of bustling Cairns and proceed to witness the grandeur of the 8,000-year-old Cathedral Fig Tree – a natural wonder that has even been a backdrop for BBC's Walking with Dinosaurs. Learn about the tiny Musky Rat Kangaroo and the vibrant Boyd's Forest Dragon from your expert guide. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon tea at Lake Barrine, a volcanic crater lake known for its ancient Bull Kauri Pines.

Nocturnal Adventures and Platypus Spotting

Post tea, catch a glimpse of the elusive Platypus, one of nature's most unusual creations, at a private viewing area in Yungaburra. This semiaquatic mammal is one of the few venomous ones, with males capable of delivering a painful blow. After a hearty dinner in Yungburra, it's time for a nocturnal escapade in the rainforest. As you step into the mysterious world of night-dwelling creatures, expect to see the Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo, renown for their agile tree-climbing skills, and the northern leaf-tailed gecko, remarkedly effective at camouflage with leaf-like tails.
