BTS Tours history;
Our earliest tours were organized during the turbulent period when the road to the Bloomfield River from Cape Tribulation was under construction, our very first departure was in November 1984, two weeks after the opening of the road that established a coastal link to Cooktown, later to become known as the Bloomfield Track.. Bloomfield Track Safaris [ now BTS ] was then established in 1985.
For 18 years we traveled the track three times a week on two day tour to Cooktown.
On June 15th 1987, At a ceremony held at the Mossman Gorge, Prime Minister Bob Hawke confirmed the world heritage listing of the wet tropical rainforests
from Cooktown to Cardwell. Our day tour focus then changed from the Bloomfield track to the Daintree rainforest and Cape Tribulation.
During this historic period BTS pioneered many aspects of a tour that gave our guests the opportunity to interact in the various habitats that collectively make up the Tropical Rainforest environment. Our Cape Tribulation tour continues to evolve today with innovative ideas from the same management team.
