Great tour

We really enjoyed this tour, we love rainforest and Alice made it very interesting, we learned a lot. You do need a reasonable level of fitness for the walk. The refreshing fruit for morning tea and light lunch by the waterfall were greatly appreciated. Very worthwhile tour!

Great hike in the rain forest

We had a great day hiking with Gus. Not only was the forest amazing but Gus was full of knowledge and stories. The highlight being the waterfall wich was overflowing with water. Thanks Gus!

Something different

This walk offers something different to all the other sea based activities you will find in Airlie. We were pleasantly surprised when Alice came to pick us up, since her other group felt sick, but she didn't cancel on us even if we were just me and my partner, which other tours might have done. The walk was informative and we enjoyed getting to know about the ecosystem and various plants and animals of the rainforest. The tour ends at cedar creek falls where you will swim in a spectacular fresh water lake and eat a healthy lunch before heading back. Taken care of from start to finish, an enjoyable afternoon from a to z.

Thank you so much for your kind words Clint & Rachel. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you both and sharing the morning with you. Enjoy the rest of your travels!

Wir haben den Trip spontan gebucht und für den Preis konnte man auch nichts verkehrt machen. Der Guide war super drauf und liebt einfach das herumführen im Regenwald. Er hat sehr viele Informationen übermittelt. Das Essen und die Snacks waren sehr lecker. Wir haben in dem kleinen See viele Schildkröten gesehen. Das einzige was aber niemand beeinflussen kann, der Wasserfall hat leider kein Wasser gehabt auf Grund der Trockenheit. Ich würde es weiterempfehlen!
