Overview

After hotel pickup, travel by air-conditioned vehicle for 20 minutes to reach Mossman Gorge, situated within Daintree National Park. When you arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage site, receive a traditional welcome ceremony by your Kuku Yalanji hosts, then join an Aboriginal guide for a leisurely rainforest walk.

In your small group, listen to commentary on local Dreamtime stories that reveal the close relationship between the local indigenous people and the natural environment. Stroll along private walking trails to see traditional structures and learn which forest plants provide shelter, food and medicine. You may encounter plants used for soap and ochre paint, and wildlife such as the Boyd's forest dragon and Ulysses butterfly.

Wrap up your Dreamtime walk with a snack of homemade damper (bread cooked over a campfire) and bush tea. Then return to Port Douglas for your afternoon cruise to the Low Isles.

Step aboard a luxury catamaran with one of the only cruise operators permitted to stop at the coral cays of the Low Isles. Sit outdoors or indoors and nibble canapes with a glass or beer or wine as your boat sets sail. Numbers are limited to 33 adults, ensuring a more intimate cruise.

When you reach the Low Isles, enjoy several hours to do as much or as little as you like. You can learn about the Great Barrier Reef’s underwater world on a guided snorkeling tour led by a marine biologist or on a glass-bottom boat tour with expert commentary. Snorkeling from the beach is an easy option for new snorkelers who want to get comfortable with the equipment. Or, you can simply relax on the boat or white-sand beach.

Afternoon tea is served on the catamaran. As your boat returns to Port Douglas, catch a gorgeous sunset over the Coral Sea, depending on the season. Your tour ends in the evening with transport back to your hotel. Alternatively, you could have dinner in Port Douglas after disembarking, then make your own way to your hotel.
