DAY 3 – Skyrail, Kuranda, Mareeba

Following breakfast we board the Skyrail that makes its journey up and over the rainforest below. Then arrive in colourful and quirky Kuranda. The village in the rainforest has earned a reputation as the arts and crafts nexus of Tropical North Queensland. You will have time to wander through the markets before we meet our coach and travel to Mareeba and the Australian Coffee Plantation. The Plantation is situated alongside the spring waters of Emerald Creek and is furnished with 25,000 young and fully producing Arabica Coffee trees.

For those of you that want to be a bit more adventurous, there is time to snorkel later in the day. We will also enjoy a delicious buffet luncheon. After an enchanting day we will return to our hotel. Overnight Cairns Queenslander (B,L,D)

DAY 5 – Paronella Park, Great Green Way

This morning we depart Cairns and make our way south to Innisfail where we enjoy a town tour from the comfort of our coach. We then arrive at Paronella Park. Everyone has a dream but not everyone’s dreams are fulfilled. José Paronella’s dream was to build a castle. He chose a special part of Australia and created Paronella Park. On 5 Hectares beside Mena Creek Falls he built his castle, picnic area by the falls, tennis courts, bridges, a tunnel, and wrapped it up in an amazing range of 7,500 tropical plants and trees, now a lush rainforest. Opened to the public in 1935, it now is a ‘must see’ when visiting the area. We will tour through the Castle Ruins in the rainforest, then enjoy lunch before departing back to Cairns. Overnight Cairns Queenslander (B,L,D)

DAY 6 – Mossman Gorge, Daintree River Cruise, Port Douglas

Today we adventure into the Mossman Gorge. The Gorge has a very accessible and scenic section of the World Heritage-listed Daintree National Park. Here the Mossman River tumbles its way over and around huge granite boulders that line the gorge creating cool clear freshwater swimming holes. We then make our way to the Daintree River for a River Cruise spotting crocs and other wildlife. Then into Port Douglas with time to explore the town before returning to Cairns via Palm Cove. Overnight Cairns Queenslander (B,L,D)
