Cape Tribulation is where the world’s oldest continually surviving tropical rainforests, meet the world’s greatest living tropical reef, the Great Barrier Reef. Nowhere else on earth do two natural World Heritage listed sites exist side by side. Such is the natural beauty and precious value of this truly stunning piece of paradise, that you will have ample time to explore and enjoy on the Active Tropics Explorer Cape Tribulation full day tour.

The overnight tour includes all of the activities of the day tour plus at least one night of accommodation, where you can choose the venue and the style, from dorms to deluxe ensuited rooms. The overnight tour includes (at least) 1 night of accommodation at Cape Tribulation. We will drop you off at lunchtime on day 1 of the day tour and then pick you up at lunch time the following day, when you will complete the day tour. This gives you 1 full day (afternoon and morning) to explore Cape Tribulation, with lots of optional extra activities to fill your time, including jungle surfing, horse riding, guided night walk, sea kayaking or even a half day reef trip. If you want, you can even add additional nights in the beachside village of Port Douglas.
