Cape Trib Connections departs Cairns by 8.00am heading north through the sugar cane fields and northern suburbs of Cairns in a comfortable air-conditioned bus. Pickups in Port Douglas are at 8.45am.On our way to Port Douglas we travel along the Captain Cook Hwy.
This is truly one of most scenic coastal drives in Australia and compares favourably with the Great Ocean Rd in Victoria. We drive through the lush green fields of the Mossman sugar cane area looking at the spectacular rainforest clad coastal mountain ranges along the way.
We cross the mighty Daintree River on a cable ferry and enter the Cape Tribulation section of the Daintree National Park. Here things begin to change for the better. We find the road narrows and the rainforest towers over us as we enjoy the ever-increasing beauty of this ancient Gondwana Rainforest.
This place is truly a window into the past with plants such as the King Ferns which have it’s historical roots set firmly in the Carboniferous age some 360 million years ago. We climb the Alexandra Range entering World Heritage Rainforest as we traverse the peak. There are superb views to be experienced from the Alexandra Range lookout. You can expect to see over a hundred kilometres on a clear day while viewing the mouth of the Daintree River and out towards Snapper Island.
This enjoyable drive is both fascinating and interesting as we pass through the rainforest community at Cow Bay before crossing several creeks on our way to the Cape. We will drop you at your accom of choice at approx 12.00pm where you can laze by the pool or on a sandy palm fringed beach. After days of fun, sun, action or relaxation your coach departs the “Cape” at approx 1.00pm.We head back to Cairns enjoying activities along the way.
