Daintree Dreaming Day Tour Cairns Reviews
Daintree Dreaming, such a great experience! Dec 21, 2010
My son (9-years old) and I went on the Daintree Dreaming-tour organized by ‘Adventure North Australia’. It’s a full day tour in a very small group. There were just 6 of us on the tour so almost a private tour! :)
There is a pick up from your hostel in Cairns.
The tour starts at a beach along the way to the Daintree. There we met our Aboriginal guide, Lincoln, to go mud crab-hunting. With spears you go hunting for crabs in the ocean and collect mussels in the mangrove. So much fun! Afterwards we were invited in Lincoln’s home where his mother prepared our catch. It tasted very nice!
Then an hour drive to Daintree River where we had a picnic lunch and went crocodile spotting on a river cruise. Even then there were not much people on board. We were lucky to see one crocodile. Not much, but is wildlife so no certainties.
From there the drive goes right into the rainforest. A short walk bring us to the wonderful Niau waterfall where we had a swim.
Our guide was a really nice guy! We had a lot of fun that day ... the tour is so divers. Highly recommended!
