After a casual breakfast at the Eco lodge, we are traveling across the
Daintree River Ferry to access the Northern area of the National Park which
includes Cape Tribulation.

visitors travel from Cairns or Port Douglas. We will visit several boardwalks
to take full advantage of the largest low-level rainforest in
Australia. Walk lengths and difficulties can be modified to suit your wishes.
Heritage Lodge & Spa will be hosting us for lunch today. The lodge
exists in a lush location with stunning natural splendor. With the soft
babbling of Cooper Creek and the songs of the rainforest birds in the
background, you will find the tranquility as exciting as the food!
After lunch we continue to Cape Tribulation.
This famous valley resembles a giant amphitheater, with a semicircle of hills
dominated by Mt Sorrow (850m) and Mt Hemmant (1000m). The southeastern rain,
trapped by this valley, results in a tropical climate with high temperatures,
humidity and rainfall. Renowned for its scenic landscape, remote beaches and Where
the Rainforest meets the Reef!
After all this exploring and discovering new places we will seek refuge
at Ferntree Rainforest Lodge. An environmentally friendly resort set back in
the heart of a lush coastal rainforest, a short stroll from Cape Tribulation’s
Myall Beach and its famous mangrove boardwalks.
