Tour Description


Do you have half a day to spare and want to see some of the most spectacular scenery and rainforest in the local area and escape the crowds? Why don’t you jump on board our 4WD for this exclusive and spectacular visit to the rainforest and surrounding area? You will be amazed in what you will see in 5 hours.



Your day will begin when one of our knowledgeable and friendly guides collect you from your hotel and we head north to the lower Barron Gorge National Park in the heart of Cairns city to visit Surprise Falls. This beautiful waterfall is 243 metres high and set amongst the beautiful lower Barron Gorge.



We then ascend the Lamb Range to the west of Cairns where you can appreciate spectacular views over Cairns city and out towards Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef



Next we will visit Lake Morris and Copperlode Dam; this is Cairns’ water supply and surrounded by World Heritage rainforest-clad mountains, it’s a unique and outstanding location to visit. We’ll stretch our legs and get some amazing photos from the lookout prior to crossing the dam wall where we begin our four-wheel drive journey



Our exclusive access permit lets us visit areas not open to the public. You want private and exclusive…. This is for you!!! Our track winds through some of the most amazing rainforest in the region and over the Great Dividing Range, which is one of the longest Mountain ranges in the world and Australia’s largest.



Once we conquer the mighty Great Dividing Range we will continue through the rainforest, crossing several creek systems and stopping at a boardwalk for an interpretive overview of the rainforest from your guide. Here you will be introduced to the Clohesy River Fig, a truly unforgettable experience



Our next destination takes us from the lushness of the Wet Tropics rainforest to the beginning of Australia’s mighty Savannah country. You will truly be amazed at the rapid change in the forest types and scenery



From here we will venture back onto the sealed road and head back towards the Wet Tropic World Heritage area and into Kuranda Village. Here you will enjoy a short tour of the village before we will continue to the Upper Barron Gorge National Park, where we will first stop at the Wrights lookout for a stunning photo overlooking the Barron Gorge and back towards the coastal plains and Cairns City. We will then take a very short drive to the Barron Falls lookout to view possibly the most famous waterfall in Northern Queensland -- the mighty Barron Falls.



Finally our day is coming to an end and we will start to head back towards Cairns via the Wet Tropic World Heritage drive on the Kuranda range, stopping at the Henry Ross Lookout overlooking the northern beach suburbs of Cairns and back out towards the Coral sea. Finally, we will then drop you back at your accommodation.
