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.


This was awesome. A half day tour which took us into the rainforest and got to swim in a rainforest waterfall pool. The landscape reminded me of Jurassic Park, so ancient and wild. Relaxed pace. Saw lots and loved the lunch at the end. Thanks so much for sharing your property with us.
