Tuesday: Journey to Daintree Rainforest, check-in to Crocodylus Village
The Daintree rainforest is situated an easy 2-hour drive north of Cairns along one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world. The Cook Highway north of Port Douglas offers beautiful scenery ranging from secluded palm fringed tropical beaches, hidden coves and rugged headlands to the rich green of lush sugar-cane fields and rainforest covered mountains.
Connecting the southern and northern Daintree regions is one of Australia’s last remaining car ferries, which operates across the Daintree River every day from dawn until late at night. The journey is an experience in itself. (Transfers are not included in this package)
On arrival at Crocodylus a giant strangler fig tree provides a dramatic centrepiece to the village. This unique hostel is situated at Cow Bay which adjoins the Baileys Creek section of Cape Tribulation National Park.
On arrival, you will be given an orientation talk and provided with maps and directions of the local area.
There are swimming holes, isolated beaches and many places of interest within walking distance of Crocodylus. Being in an isolated area, Crocodylus generates its own electricity. The resort is powered by generators, which run 24 hours per day. You may wish to bring a flashlight with you for night walks in the rainforest.
The rainforest canopy remains undisturbed, as the safari tent style accommodation huts have been delicately built up off the ground and spaced out amongst the dense tropical rainforest. From the comfort of your hut you can feel part of the rainforest, listening to and watching the wildlife of the forest. The Jungle Restaurant serves fabulous large home style meals. Start the day with a cooked breakfast, muesli or a special pancake.
An orientation will be carried out at Crocodylus prior to trip departure the following day. The tour commences at 7.30am and arrives back on the beach the following day at 5pm.
Wednesday: Snapper Island Sea Kayak (DEPARTS WEDNESDAY ONLY)
Snapper Island National Park is situated 2 kilometres from the mouth of the Daintree River, in Tropical North Queensland, Australia. The island is uninhabited, filled with tropical rainforest and surrounded by magnificent coral reef and white sandy beaches.
You will paddle a very stable, 7 metre surveyed kayak from the mainland to Snapper Island. The fully equipped rescue boat and experienced guide will accompany you though your journey. When you arrive at Snapper Island, you will have this whole unspoilt tropical island to yourselves. Kayak, snorkel, walk, sleep, read, eat, drink, laugh, learn, laze, bask. Take as much or as little as you please. Accommodation on the island is camping on the beach.
Thursday: Snapper Island Sea Kayak Return
Very easy to wake up to - a true room with a view. A dining area will be set up on the beach and all your meals will be prepared for you whilst you are exploring this fabulous island.

we found the place very interesting
we found the place very interesting but didnt realise it was a yha, so was a bit surprised about that, so felt that $95 was a bit much for a glorified tent! bit chilly this time of year! would have been a suitable price to split the cost between a larger group, but felt it was a bit over priced. but besides that it was an experience.

Our trip was made exceptional when we sighted 2 humpback whales who spent 1 1/2 hours watching us!! Our guide was fantastic during this time & helped us really \"live the moment\" Ceri, Robbie & Ryan Weeks, Tasmania

a childhood dream
To reach an uninhabitated beautiful little tropical island paddling in a sea of corals was a childhood dream of mine and the Snapper Island Tour made me fulfill this dream.

we fully enjoyed the canoeing trip
Hallo Emma, we fully enjoyed the canoeing trip to Snapper Island, it is well planned to give people reasonable rest and time to enjoy a little snorkelling along the way and Dennis made our camping very confortable indeed.
The big surprise was the Crocodilus Village, which we had booked only as the starting point for the canoeing trip. The rain forest there and along their "orange rope walk" is better preserved than in all other visitable sites of the area (and we happened to see most of them), with thick large mature trees that dwarf the cabins... just think that ten minutes after we dropped in, TWO cassowaries (!! aren't they supposed to be lonely animals?) passed less that 5 metres from the front door of our cabin.
