North Queensland is home to the Wet Tropics Rainforest—the oldest surviving rain forest on the planet and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During your day out you will experience this living time capsule of Australia’s flora and fauna through driving and walking within this precious environment. Expert local guides will tell the story of the region and entertain you as you drive from Townsville through pineapple and sugarcane plantations. The scenery along the way includes mountain streams and waterfalls and a breathtaking view from McLelland Lookout. Enjoy morning tea (or coffee) in the rain forest village of Paluma before you encounter the magnificent rain forest. Lunch will be served along the way at the Hidden Valley Cabins, which is Australia's first Carbon-Neutral 100% solar powered resort.
Your camera is a must on this tour to capture the North Queensland Rainforest.
