Travelling beyond the end of the sealed road where few companies dare to venture, deep in the remote region of the Daintree Rainforest, is an area seldom seen by visitors.
This 4WD Adventure offers incredible beauty and rugged terrain while including all the ‘must do’ locations before arriving at our destination of the Bloomfield Falls.
Escape the crowds and experience a true 4WD Daintree Wilderness Adventure with us.
We’ll start our day with a Daintree River Cruise, followed by a stop at Alexandra Lookout, then onto morning tea at Cape Tribulation with a walk to the Kulki Lookout for unsurpassed views of the rainforest and beach and being the only place in the world where two world heritage areas meet.
Travelling further north we start our off road journey along the Bloomfield Track through some of the most picturesque and remote wilderness region of the Daintree/Cape Tribulation National Park with spectacular lookouts and natural creek crossings which become a challenge at times after our seasonal rains, untouched coastal scenery and a stop along the way to view one of the most untouched, pristine and remote beaches at Stingray Bay before we reach our destination of the Bloomfield Falls.
After a short break, we return to Cape Tribulation and follow on to Noah Valley, a World Heritage Listed private property, which supports some of the most spectacular, pristine rainforest found anywhere in the world.
Enjoy a stroll along ‘The Gateway To Paradise’ and view one of the most primitive flowering plants still existing, while our a barbeque lunch is prepared in our unique setting, a private retreat surrounded by rainforest.
