First stop is the view over the Coral Sea from the fabulous Alexandra Range Lookout.

Sightings of Cassowaries, Forest Dragons and even Buff Breasted Paradise Kingfishers are possible, as we explore one of the various rainforest boardwalks and beaches on the journey to Cape Tribulation.  Stand at the intersection of two World Heritage Areas; The Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.
