We then visit a World Heritage Rainforest Boardwalk where you’ll view giant Strangler Fig Trees. We then head to one of Australia’s original coffee plantations - Jaques on the Atherton Tablelands for a delightful morning tea (including local coffee & scones). Visit the Mareeba Wetlands, a sanctuary for much of tropical Australia savannah and wetland wildlife and cultural heritage. Check out Bob’s Lookout before heading to Palmer River Roadhouse for lunch. Heading on towards Cooktown & mysterious Black Mountain, we climb some rugged terrain for a visit to Archer Point Lighthouse - a beacon to guide ships along the Great Barrier Reef. It’s then time for a refreshing drink (own expense) at the Lions Den Pub - another classic Aussie Icon. We then make our way to our overnight accommodation.

After an early breakfast, we visit the famous "Willy Gordon Guurrbi Tour" this is truly an amazing tour. Willie’s magical Aboriginal tours are recognised as one of Australia's must-do experiences and his small business has received a host of accolades, both here and overseas. In 2007 he received the Gnunkai Best Indigenous Tour Guide Award, and in 2008 was particularly proud to be named Cook Shire’s Citizen of the year. We then head into the centre of Cooktown and enjoy a light lunch. After lunch we enjoy a town tour and head up to Grassy Hill lookout for a look at fantastic view of Cooktown and its famous "River of Gold". It’s then onto the Historic Captain James Cook Museum. It’s then time to head south towards Cape Tribulation and the Daintree Rainforest.
