Your tour to the Daintree National Park will depart from your hotel in Cairns or Port Douglas.

Along private and easy dirt roads you will visit important cultural sites and traditional huts. Your guide, an experienced local, will show you the traditional use of plants and local bush food. Learn about ancient Aboriginal legends and cave painting during a walk. After the walk (approx. 1,5 h) you will enjoy a short tea break and have time to ask the guide your questions.

Afterwards, you will drive on to Mossman, Australia's northernmost sugar cane town. The Silky Oaks Lodge is situated in a dreamlike oasis in the middle of the rainforest. Enjoy lunch at the lodge with stunning views over the Mossman River (note: pay attention to the dress code).
