What our customers say

We took the full day Cairns to Cooktown 4WD adventure tour through the Daintree Forest and Cape Tribulation.  Our guide and driver was cheerful, very helpful and a mine of information. The vehicle was comfortable as it could expected to be, given the terrain it covered. The scenery was superb and we enjoyed our day immensely. We will remember it forever.

“Trip to Dantree and Cooktown”
Reviewed 21 January 2015

We went on this day trip in January 2015.. It was a hard; but absolutely a fantastic day. Both my wife and I, enjoyed all the stories our driver and guide Andy could tell us during the day. In this way the many hours in the bus, became an interesting adventure. We used our eyes and ears and got knowledge, we couldn´t have found without our guide Andy' s help. Brigitte and Per, Denmark


Cooktown 4WD Adventure Reviews


Antonia Cardone

A really informative and inspiring tour from Cairns to Cooktown along the coast and then back via the inland route. Guide Bridget Lawton shared her deep knowledge and understanding of the region through stories and facts about the people, places, flora and fauna. Our interactions with Indigenous guides Brandon, Gloria and Willie were personal and sincere. Michael and I loved this tour and wished it was longer. Go, it might change your life!


David Jenke

We toured to Cooktown yesterday ably guided by Kate. I personally hadn't been to this part of the country before & it reinforced yet once again that we truly live in a fabulous land. I was totally impressed with Kate's ability to keep on track as it was a big day & all done with a smile. She mastered that Isuzu off road unit like it was a part of her! Even impressed a former truckie like me. I don't travel well in the back of buses & Adventure North accommodated for me to sit up front. Glad I did! Well done Adventure North - you've got a good thing going there!
