Cairns Adventure Group is the initiative of a proudly, locally owned and family operated enterprise. It includes several leading Cairns adventure tours and activities, including Foaming Fury white water rafting, the Waterfall Wanderers tropical Tablelands day tour, the Active Tropics Explorer tours to Cape Tribulation and the Daintree Rainforest and Aussie Drifterz, Cairns’ original half day rainforest tubing tour.
As the name suggests, adventure is their game at the Cairns Adventure Group and they’ve brought together this fabulous selection of Cairns adventure tours and activities to cater to people of all ages, abilities and interests.
What are they about? Loving life. Living in paradise. Having adventures in nature. They’re about making memories through adventurous exploration of the natural world around them. Up there in Tropical North Queensland, that world just happens to include World Heritage listed rainforest, ancient plants and animals, tumbling waterfalls, mighty gorges and amazing white water rivers which provide rapids, pools and gentle swimming spots.
The Barron River Half Day Tour is a fantastic introduction to White Water Rafting. It’s fun, exciting and exhilarating, suitable for all the family aged 12 years and over. Enjoy up to two hours rafting, on up to grade three rapids.
The beautiful Barron Gorge National Park is only 20 minutes from the centre of Cairns (40 minutes departing Port Douglas). It’s known for its rugged rainforest mountains, steep ravines, the mighty Barron Falls and of course, Barron Gorge, which has been carved out over thousands of years by the Barron River.
This is where they do their half day white water rafting tour, on the ebb and flow of the Barron River, as it snakes its way down from the mountains and heads out to the Coral Sea. This is a scenic rafting / rainforest adventure which combines calm water floating with a series of white water rapids for adventure and action.
Let their guides entertain you on this spectacular river, offering guaranteed water levels year round!
Cape Tribulation is where the world’s oldest continually surviving tropical rainforests, meet the world’s greatest living tropical reef, the Great Barrier Reef. Nowhere else on earth do two natural World Heritage listed sites exist side by side. Such is the natural beauty and precious value of this truly stunning piece of paradise, that you will have ample time to explore and enjoy on the Active Tropics Explorer Cape Tribulation full day tour.
Their day starts with entry into Mossman Gorge including a Welcome to Country and traditional Smoke Ceremony with the traditional owners of the land, the Kuku Yalangi after which they'll continue onto the Daintree River where we'll board a Wildlife Cruise. There's plenty of wildlife to be seen but fingers crossed they'll see a Saltwater Crocodile in it's natural habitat. As the afternoon goes on you'll experience a delicious lunch on the Cape Tribulation Beach, a guided Rainforest Walk and a visit to a local ice-creamery with wild but delicious rainforest flavours.
Be amazed at the huge natural diversity you will encounter, everything from low lying ferns and shrubs, to the massive rainforest canopy and even mangrove ecosystems all in one day. This truly is a unique environment.
Travel south and discover the majesty and beauty of north Queensland’s most iconic waterfalls, a must see for anyone wanting to experience pristine rainforest, cascading waterfalls, stunning panoramas of Queensland’s highest peaks and maybe a glimpse of rare and unique native wildlife.
After a delicious morning tea at Babinda Boulders, you can start your day with a refreshing swim at Josephine Falls. Paddle in the crystal clear waters or try out the natural rockslide, famous throughout the Far North!
Journey on to Australia’s most iconic waterfall Millaa Millaa Falls, made famous by Qantas and Herbal Essence (hair shampoo) commercials. This 18 metre single drop waterfall lies in the heart of the Wet Tropics World Heritage listed rainforest. For lunch, we will take you to Australia’s largest timer pub and fill your belly with some good old fashioned country cooking. Then it’s back into the waterfalls, starting at Dinner Falls and the Mount Hypipamee Crater.
Spot platypus in the wild, view the incredible Curtain Fig Tree and finish the day with a swim at volcanically heated lake Eacham. Exploring the Atherton tablelands seriously doesn't get better than this!
Cairns’ original half day tubing tours operate in two of the best rainforest locations in town, Behana Gorge and the Mulgrave River. They’ll pick the best one to maximise your fun, pending conditions at the time of travel.
Spend a delightful couple of hours floating gently down a pristine, rainforest stream soaking in the sights, sounds and smells of the natural beauty that surround you. This is the perfect way to cool down and really immerse yourself in Cairns’ rainforest environment and experience. A little bit of action, a little bit of adventure and a whole lot of good times!
