DAINTREE RAINFOREST EXPERIENCE TOURS
Daintree / Cape Tribulation Area – Day Tour
Be aware – if you hope to experience the Daintree Rainforest at arm’s length, from the security of your coach, this is definitely not the tour for you!
From the moment you meet Pete, you realise he marches to a different drum. Not for him a sleek, pampered city–bred 4×4. He drives the only customized Land Rover safari wagon in the business. A tough but comfortable vehicle, designed for rugged terrain.
Pete, an accredited guide, is a master of bushcraft, whose knowledge and experience of bush foods and medicines has been gained in three different countries. Expect to be taken out of your comfort zone. You’ll discover his tours are unique – a hands-on, in-your-face and over the top experience. Explore forest tracks; touch and taste things you never dreamed you could or would. Learn to view the rainforest through enlightened eyes – those of a master survivalist in bushcraft. Pete, is a natural teacher who readily shares his vast knowledge. Your day with him is guaranteed to be intriguing, entertaining and amusing – non-stop interaction, as you paint your face, create a toothbrush; acquire a startling blue tongue. Never will you view the humble ant, vine or roadside plant in the same light again.
Top all this off with an invigorating dip in a secluded forest pool. Eat your lunch (providing you have space after all the home-baked cookies), seated on one of Pete’s special ‘soft rocks’
In all probability, you will be returned to your accommodation late in the afternoon, damp, disheveled and dirty, but with a wide and satisfied grin on your face and a head full of fabulous, indelible memories.
When all is said and done, Pete’s Daintree Rainforest Tours are the only way to genuinely experience and appreciate the true rainforest.
Bloomfield Falls – Day Tour
You gain a bargain here, with two tours in one, making for a very full day. An early start is necessary, but rest assured, it is not all spent sitting in the customized Land Rover station wagon.
Leaving the Daintree vehicular ferry behind, Pete takes you for a short introductory bushwalk. Here, you will gain an insight into the intricate workings and symbiotic relationships that make up the rainforest. Learn what is edible and which plants to avoid due to their unfriendly tendencies. Sample bush tucker; taste the rainforest’s version of lemonade. More conventional refreshments with home baked cookies will set you up for the exciting trip up the steep Bloomfield Track.
Lunch on the banks of a deep river pool, allows time for an exhilarating dip. Refreshed, a short drive takes you to your destination – Bloomfield Falls. By now, you will be getting used to Pete’s surprises as he springs yet another to amaze you. He literally moves mountains.
The entertaining and educational journey with Pete on the Track and in the rainforest will create food for thought and generate indelible memories of a great day out.
