Adventure Tours to the Daintree Rainforest: Celebrate Earth Day

Who says Earth Day has to be regulated to just 24 hours when there are adventure tours to North Queensland available? Adventure tours to North Queensland may include a wide variety of eco-friendly activities, including an informative expedition to the Daintree Rainforest. It is widely recognised as one of the oldest and most diverse, tropical rainforests in the world. Unlike some adventure tours to Daintree Rainforest, ours include opportunities to interact in the field with tertiary qualified, biological scientists.

Let’s take our Tropics Explorer Overnight adventure tours as examples. They may be customised to include guided, nighttime walks through the Daintree Rainforest and participation in indigenous cultural activities within the Kuku Yalanji country. The list of other adventure tour add-ons includes, but isn’t limited to horseback riding on the beach, jungle surfing, unguided walks through the forest and sea kayaking at sunrise or sunset. The sea kayaking experience, by the way, is guided and takes place in Cape Tribulation Headland. It’s part of the rainforest as well as the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

The two areas are home to many rare mammals, insects, birds and other wildlife that can be discussed with the tertiary qualified, biological scientists associated with Wings’ adventure tours. One animal that you may encounter during evening walks through the rainforest is the green ringtail possum. Although they are nocturnal, green ringtail possums differ from their North American relatives. For example, they prefer living in higher elevations and eating stinger plants, which their North American cohorts wouldn’t be able to stomach. Just ask our adventurous biologists why and we’re sure that they’ll enlighten you.
