Okay, so any adventurer worth their salt will be looking to take a trek or two into this World Heritage haven for rare and endangered tropical species. One of the oldest rainforests on Earth, this is a must for anyone particularly interested in venturing into a world largely preserved from the meddling of civilization.
Quite often if you take a tour from nearby Port Douglas you'll cruise the Daintree River in search of crocodiles or speed between the thick mangrove and fan palm forests to untenanted swatches of beach. These are viable activities and a tour guide will do wonders to bring insight to this influential, one-of-a-kind part of the natural world, but true adventurers will want a bit in-depth experience. Mossman Gorge is hugely popular (especially with tours) for its freshwater swimming holes, short, easy hikes, and insights into the aboriginal connections of the area. Cape Tribulation is more or less a coastal experience, with a variety of short hikes that include many pristine beaches; take the trek up Mount Sorrow ridge if you're looking for more of a test and rewarding lookout toward the Great Barrier Reef.
Other advenurous activities include jungle ziplining and off-roading the Bloomfield Track that runs from Cape Tribulation to Cook Town. Self-driving is actually quite manageable, unless you're looking to do river crossings after a deluge; you'll even get to enjoy the worthwhile Bloomfield Falls. Take a look through our included links for even more on what you can accomplish in this rare natural environment.
