What makes it great?
You will visit the following 5 locations in one day (depending on seasonal and weather conditions)
White Rock Wild Kangaroo's:
White Rock is a residential area where many wild Kangaroos can be found. This natural breeding ground for our native friends presents a great photo opportunity.
Curtain Fig Tree:
The unique and stunning massively formed strangler fig is simply not to be missed. Over hundreds of years, it has effectively "strangled" 4 trees to create a high rise building sized eco system that is home to many animals and other plants. It lives within a specific type of cooler climate rainforest that is also the home of rare and endangered Tree Kangaroo.
Millaa Millaa Falls:
One of Australia's most famous waterfalls and the home of many active platypuses. Keep a lookout for these Aussie icons playing in the water. Opportunity for a swim.
Josephine Falls is a secluded freshwater swimming hole, located at the foot of Queensland's tallest mountain, Mt. Bartle Frere (1622m). Hidden in the tropical rainforest you will find a series of dramatic cascading waterfalls flowing into large pools surrounded by boulders. Rainforest trees hang over the water, keeping it cool and refreshing. Take the plunge in the exciting rockslide and feel revitalised in this refreshing swimming hole (life vests are provided for children). Opportunity for a swim.
Mamu lands & The North Johnstone Valley lookout:
View the ancient Wooroonooran Rainforest from high over the tree tops. Take in the exhilarating vistas of the Johnstone River gorge and amazing surrounding World Heritage landscapes.
Enjoy excellent Tropical North Queensland style Australian-Italian buffet lunch, at Innisfail's Roscoe's Restaurant. There is an excellent variety of exquisite dishes and an outstanding dessert buffet. Innisfail is the quintessential tropical frontier town.
Mulgrave River Cruise:
Departs from our private jetty at Deeral landing and travels upstream into the quiet rainforest upper estuary reaches of the Mulgrave River. The area is rich with wildlife and natural beauty. All alone, it is a great opportunity to see various bird species including Little Kingfisher and Great Billed Herron, Crocodiles, and many other rainforest and esuary wildlife species. As your Guide talks about the home of the Yidinji indigenous people who for thousands of years lived in grass huts along the river, surviving by foraging and hunting within the ocean, mangrove and raoinforest environment. Also it offers great views of Mt Bellenden Ker ( QLD's second highest peak and the remarkable Pyramid.

A terrific day.
This was the best day by far. Excellent guide, lots to see and do, and even though it rained most of the day, the rainforest was magical. Lunch at Innisfail was excellent, Italian, lots of variety and well cooked and presented. Good value for money. A terrific day.
