Today your Eco-Certified Tour starts from the Northern Beaches and Cairns and north to the Cairns Toprical Zoo where you can see an abundance of Australian wildlife including a variety of birds, native mammals and crocodile. Take advantage of the great photo opportunities while you are there.
We then head south passing the majestic “Pyramid” mountain, surrounded by fields of sugar cane. We continue south to the beautiful Josephine Falls where we will enjoy a short rainforest walk taking us deep into the Falls – our experienced guide will interpret the wet tropical rainforest and the natural flora and fauna. Walk to the viewing platform at the top of the falls for the best aspect of the Falls.
With lunch time approaching we make our way to Innisfail – settled by Italian immigrants, in the heart of sugar cane country and renowned for its Art Deco buildings. Tantalise your tastebuds as we relax at Roscoe’s Restaurant for an Australian-Italian buffet.
After lunch we travel to the highlight of today’s Tour in the heart of the protected wilderness of the Wet Tropics World Heritage listed Wooroonooran National Park. Our guide will take you through this magnificent country and this ancient rainforest inhabited by the MaMu people since the beginning of time. From the canopy walkway we take in the enormity of this beautiful landscape and the North Johnstone River. Stand high in the tall timbered rainforest with spectacular cantilever viewing platforms and tower canopy views over the exhilarating vistas of the North Johnstone River Gorge.
As we make our way back to Cairns we make a brief stop into the tiny town of Babinda for a quick afternoon refreshment and a chance to meet a local Aboriginal family to see their painting work and to hear the didgeridoo.
Our final stop of the day is at the Boulders Wilderness Reserve on the eastern slopes of Mt. Bartle Frere – Australia’s second highest mountain – steeped in Aboriginal legend from the local Tininji tribe where it is told that the spirit of Aboriginal maiden Oolana dwells within the submerged boulders of the creek. Walk along a rainforest path to the breathtaking granite rock gorge where our naturalist Guide tells this magical story. Enjoy a swim in one of the creeks as advised by our Guide. We return to Cairns and your accommodation relaxed and refreshed after a beautiful day in the tropical Misty Mountains.
