cape tribulation tour bookings
Your host at Rainforest Hideaway can advise you on all tours,
you can book them online now, or book them when you have arrived.

Cape Tribulation is a place where you could relax and forget about the world, or you can make it an action packed stay, the choice is yours!

To give you some idea of what tours you could combine to make the most out of your stay here are some approximate departure times;

Ocean Safari departs for their reeftrip at 08:15and you'll be back around 13:00, which will give you time to do an afternoon horse ride, a sunset kayak tour, or the exotic fruit tasting. Their afternoon does not usually run unless it is busy in town.
Horse rides run in the morning and afternoon departing 08:00 and 13:00
Jungle Surfing tours depart hourly throughout the day and last about two hours, so can always be fitted in somewhere, although they can be booked heavily during busy times.
The nightwalks start picking up from 19:30 so you can have some dinner after your day tours and still be ready on time, the restaurants start cooking at 18:00
So if your time is limited, but your energy is not, you could do a morning reeftrip or horseride, followed by a junglesurf, and then a sunset kayaktrip followed by a nightwalk, all in one day!

Anf if all the above sounds too exhausting for you, why not relax with a massage at Rainforest Hideaway.

Virtually all tours at Cape Tribulation have been awarded Eco-Certification by Eco-Tourism Australia.
This organisation was formed in 1991 as an incorporated non-profit organisation, and is the peak national body for the ecotourism industry.

Your tourguide will also tell you all about this amazing flora and fauna, so you get an understanding of how everything in the rainforest eco system is connected to eachother.




crocodile spotted on a tour in the daintree national park
Large crocodile on the banks of Cooper Creek in the Daintree National Park

North Australia's rivers are teeming with crocodiles, who have been gradually building up their numbers ever since laws were introduced to protect them.
When you arrive in the Daintree area you will find quite a number of tour operators specializing in boat trips to spot crocodiles.
If you make the detour into Daintree Village you will find numerous operators there, too many to mention here.
Just before the Daintree river ferry there is another group of booking offices offering tours on the Daintree river.
If it does not fit in to your itinerary to do a crocodile tour on your way up to Cape Tribulation or on your way back then the nearest tour to Rainforest Hideaway is on Cooper Creek, only about twenty minutes down the road, next to Cafe on Sea at Thornton Beach.
This one can not be booked online but your host can always make phone bookings for you at short notice while you are staying at Rainforest Hideaway.
This tour, Cape Tribulation Wilderness Cruises, is the only boat permitted up Cooper Creek, and thanks to this the crocodiles know the boat and will not flee when approached.
On the Daintree river is the Solar Whisper, an excellent tour which has a croc cam on board to play back those encounters that happen just a bit too quick.
