Billy Tea Safaris - *Cape Tribulation & 4WD Bloomfield Track Day Tour

Billy Tea Safaris is a small locally owned tour operator, which operates small personalised tours with custom built 4WD vehicles. Your naturalist guide will have extensive knowledge of flora, fauna, history of the area and aboriginal culture, which will ensure you day will be a memory of a life time.

We drive north along the magnificent scenic coastal route along the Captain Cook Highway with spectacular views of the coastline and the Azure waters of the Coral Sea. Our first stop is at the Majestic Daintree River for Morning Tea (Tea, Coffee & Biscuits) before enjoying an informative guided River Cruise on the Daintree River. Relax and enjoy the splendour only the Daintree can offer as you learn of Estuarine Crocodiles, mangrove forests and endemic wildlife.

From here we make our way up over the Alexandra Range and pause for a panoramic view of World Heritage Rainforest merging with the azure colours of the Coral Sea. Experience the rainforest intimately on one of our guided elevated National Park Boardwalks. Your experienced guide will take you on a wonderful journey through this ancient rainforest whilst giving you interpretation of flora and fauna. You will have ample time for photographs and questions as we search for the elusive, rare and totally unique Southern Cassowary and other wildlife species within this particular habitat.

We now make our way towards Daintree, Cape Tribulation and stop for lunch at a restaurant, which is also an animal refuge centre where you have the opportunity to hand feed the wallabies, get up close to Eclectus Parrots, Pythons & other native wildlife whilst enjoying delicious barbecue lunch with freshly prepared salads in a beautiful rainforest setting (we also cater for vegetarians and other dietary requirements upon notification before tour day).

We then take you beyond Cape Tribulation as we continue along the 4WD Bloomfield Track through to pristine Emmagen Creek. Billy Tea Safaris is the only tour operator that goes to this secret Jewel in the Rainforest. Here you can indulge in a feast of exotic tropical fruits, and sample a cup of traditional Billy Tea, made in a traditional Australian Billy. Take the opportunity to take a refreshing fresh water swim here in crystal clear waters.

We then make our way to Cape Tribulation Beach after most of the crowds are gone, stroll along the beach and boardwalk to the photographers' platform overlooking the mountains and coast where the 'Rainforest meets the Reef' before we stop for an afternoon refreshment at the Daintree Ice-Cream Company (at own expense - cash only, no eftpos here).

We then cross the Daintree River by cable ferry and begin our homeward journey somewhat wiser for our 'Total Rainforest Experience'.
