2 Day Cooktown Explorer tour - Down Under Tours

2 Day Cooktown Explorer

Day 1:

Our journey begins by making our way north through the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest.  Cross the Daintree River and marvel at the magic of the world’s oldest rainforest. Enjoy a tasty morning tea on the renowned Cape Tribulation Beach. Your guide will share fascinating stories and history as you travel along the famous 4WD-only Bloomfield Track before our stop for lunch at the iconic Lions Den Hotel; one of Queensland’s oldest pubs, established in 1878. Once we arrive in Cooktown, visit Grassy Hill for amazing panoramic views of Cooktown, the Coral Sea and Endeavour River. Learn fascinating history on the driver-guided town tour before we take you to your accommodation for the evening.

Day 2:

Enjoy a relaxed start to your day before meeting your guide to explore more of this historic town. Your driver guide will take you to the Heritage listed Cooktown Cemetery, visit James Cook Museum for a guided tour, and explore the beautiful Cooktown Botanic Gardens. Each place bears significant testimony to the history and culture of Cooktown, the area and it’s people. Journey back to Cairns this afternoon via the Mulligan Highway to experience the outback landscape in contrast to the rainforest the previous day. Stop briefly at Black Mountain and the Palmer River Roadhouse before being returned to your accommodation in Cairns or Port Douglas.
