Plam Cove Daintree Rainforest Tours
From the mighty Daintree Rainforest to Cape Tribulation you can see it all in a day from Palm Cove with tour operators picking you up early in the morning and taking you deep into the spectacular rainforests that are classed as the oldest in the world.
Swim in pristine waterfalls or have a snorkel tour through the rainforest rivers to see turtles, fish, eel and other marine life. See the prehistoric crocodiles in their natural habitats on the river bank or at feed time in a wildlife park jumping skyward from the water to eat the chicken on the end of the stick the ranger is holding.
Visit the quaint rainforest village of Kuranda by combining the Skyrail cableway that glides above the rainforest canopy, and the Kuranda Scenic Rail, a characteristic train that meanders through the World Heritage-listed rainforest and deep through the mountainside.
This village has been well known since the sixties and seventies as a hippie type of town with people who like the alternative lifestyles rather than the busy city, consumer style of living. Great markets and shops here to meander thru.
Visit the Butterfly Sanctuary, Birdworld, the Venom House or pick up an Aboriginal didgeridoo or painting to show your friends back home. Lots of street musicians and activity to look at here. Kuranda attracts people from all over the world.
