This was by far one of the best things we've ever done in North Qld! Andy was awesome! Full of good knowledge and the waterfall was outta this world! The trip to the waterfall and back was definitely a favourite for the kids! Definitely coming back! Thank you so much!


What an exhilarating experience! An absolute must do if your traveling around FNQ. Make sure you book with Andy in advance. This is a memory that my family and I will never forget!


We had such an amazing time on this tour! The 4WD was heaps of fun, the property was stunning and the knowledge shared was the best! Jumping in and swimming in the waterfall was something we’ll never forget. Thank you so much!


From the minute you enter the driveway on this private property, you are greeted with a special energy and spectacular views. On our visit we were privileged to be part of the enchanting waterfall tour travelling through the working cattle farm, rainforest, creeks and more. Andrew was our host, passionate and informative about everything on his property and is more than happy to share. This is a must do affordable adventure whilst up in the Daintree area. Be sure to book in advance to secure a spot as the groups are small and tailored for a more intimate experience. I can highly recommend this and would definitely rate it 10/10 , just perfect for all.


Went on a tour with Andy this week and is undoubtedly a MUST DO on your trip to Far North Queensland. Our family of five all truly adored the experience (and have been reminiscing on it since). Andy is a highly knowledgeable host, offering insight into both the local flora and fauna. Truly a unique and memorable experience for the entire family - thank you for making it so special Andy.


Wow! What an amazing experience!!! Andy was an exceptional tour guide with so much knowledge about this stunning part of FNQ. The ride in the 4WD army truck was so much fun! Felt like we were explorers in the middle of Jurassic Park! We went on an amazing rainforest walk up to a waterfall where we filled our drink bottles with the most beautiful clean running water! Then off to Cassowary Falls for a swim! Wow 🤩 this was incredible. The water hole is full of fish and turtles, the waterfall is stunning and the water felt amazing. Our family ranged from 6 years to 70 years and we all had a ball. Andy was there to help us over any tricky areas and make sure we felt safe the entire time. This is a must do tour! Thank you so much for today Andy and Family, we will be back!


What a fantastic tour!! Best decision to book this one, the whole family loved it. Rainforest walk, swimming in a rainforest waterfall, off-roading across some of the most beautiful landscape I have ever seen. Even spotted the Eastern Water Dragon. Can't wait to check out my drone footage. Thanks for a great day Andy.


My partner and I had an incredible experience on the waterfall tour with Andy! His knowledge and passion for the rainforest made the tour very personalised and memorable for us. We recommend this to anybody who wants an authentic Daintree experience - the views over the property was a lovely way to finish. Thanks so much Andy & Liz!


I booked in for the falls tour and had an absolutely wonderful experience. The trail to the waterfall felt like something out of a movie! I got to see turtles, fish and a very large eel! The waterfall itself was magnificent and the water was perfect, the cute turtle watching me swim was a bonus. Definitely would recommend as a must do when visiting the Daintree!


Andy was a fantastic tour guide with so much knowledge of the rainforest. His friendly personality and humour made it an even more enjoyable tour. The waterfall and swimming was so much fun. ... We will definitely be returning to stay in one of the chalets next time. I strongly recommend Cassowary Falls!


Our last full day in the Daintree for our honeymoon and couldn't think of a better way to spend it. Andy was an amazing host and the trip to the waterfall and the swim itself was incredible. If you pictured swimming in waterfalls for your trip to the Daintree I would absolutely recommend Andy and Elizabeth and this Cassowary Falls tour.


This is a beautiful part of the world, the falls are clean, easy to access but well hidden. The lagoon is magical, full of fish and freshwater turtles. An awesome experience of natural beauty.


Our families attended to do the rainforest and falls tour. It was one of the best tours I have done to date FNQ. Tour guide ANDY was an absolute legend. Thanks again Andy for the great family experience.


Amazing experience, exactly what we were looking for. Andy was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. The water was 23 degrees and far warmer and inviting that Mossman Gorge and the small size of the group meant it was intimate. I would happily recommend spending a a few hours with Andy at Cassowary Falls. It was well worth it! We will be back.
