Daintree Rainforest and Cooper Creek Wilderness provide ethical access to the most significant portion of the Daintree Rainforest in the Cape Tribulation section of the World Heritage Area.

Treks are on the rainforest floor, unspoiled by artificial structures. Inhabitant guides traverse discrete trails through a complex rainforest environment, part of an ancient landscape. Cooper Creek Wilderness occupies the centrepiece of the last remnant of the oldest-surviving rainforest in the world. A Gondwanan rainforest relict that has survived more than 160-million years, where ancient plants like the "green dinosaur" remain as living proof of its persistence over the millenia. Containing the most extensive remnant populations of primitive angiosperms (flowering plant families) in the world, Cooper Creek Wilderness is ideally positioned to showcase World Heritage values to visitors from around the world, through a variety of unique experiences.

CCW2 Nocturnal Wildlife Tour

Jalbil Jurassic Dinosaur

The greatest opportunity to observe some of Australia's most unique wildlife in natural habitat occurs after nightfall. Temperature, rainfall and moonlight all have profound effects on wildlife behaviour. The most ideal conditions occur on the hottest, wettest and darkest nights. By contrast, brightly-moonlit nights in the middle of the cooler, drier periods confer significantly greater challenges.

Discover the nocturnal sights, sounds and movements of the world's oldest rainforest with the custodian of rainforest secrets. Flashlights provided.

They recommend that you combine Day & Night Walks for a better understanding of the nature of the forest.

CCW4 Combination Day and Night Tour

Boyd's Forest Dragon

Combination Day and Night Package

 - CCW4

Designed to showcase the rich diversity of natural and cultural heritage values within the prestigious Cooper Creek catchment.

Fewer than one per cent of travellers to the Cape Tribulation Daintree Rainforest successfully negotiate their way through the protective barrier that conceals the old-growth Gondwanan forest of Cooper Creek Wilderness. Guided, interpreted day tours reveal an extraordinary intellectual property, which amplifies the profundity of nature's masterpiece. Similarly, nocturnal tours reveal dimensions of global significance that are invariably hidden during daylight hours.

To optimise the profundity of this ancient and complex landscape, a combination of CCW3 and CCW2 with an evening meal included, is highly recommended.

CCW4 PLUS For keen walkers who want the 4-hour Greater Wilderness Day Walk in a package, add AUD30.00 per adult and AUD20.00 per child on arrival.

Indicative Rates*

$220.00$240.00Tour - All Inclusive

CCW6 Greater Wilderness Tour

Grand Fan Palm Gallery

Finally, a rainforest experience that showcases the best of the world's oldest surviving rainforest - without modification!

Travellers to tropical north Queensland are directed into a variety of 'Daintree Rainforests' featuring artificial structures including boardwalks, vehicle-based tours, bike-riding, horse-riding, bunjy-jumping, parachuting, hang-gliding, zip-lining, cable-gondolas ... the choices are incredible; but the greatest difficulty would seem to be gaining access into pristine rainforest without any gimmickry whatsoever.

Genuine old-growth rainforest, spectacular in its grandeur is presented not through the construction and maintenance of a formal trail network, but rather through the knowledge and memory of the inhabitant guide. Duration is variable, depending on conditions and client wishes.

A longer, more intensive guided tour through the awe-inspiring grandeur of majestic, old-growth rainforest with a rainforest expert, followed by an optional swim in a rainforest pool (weather permitting). This tour can be incorporated into our package tours CCW3 and CCW4 on request.
