4WD Eco Safari
Experience North Queensland and the Atherton Tablelands from a different perspective. Above all, you’ll have a great day on this eco-sensitive 4WD Eco Safari. We will take you away from the mass-marketed areas to one of the north’s last wilderness frontiers.
Therefore, there are no “Touristy Crowds”. For example, no other vehicles (we have exclusive access) and no sealed roads. Just pristine World Heritage Rainforest in Cairns. Most importantly, you will get to experience places not seen on other tours. Journey over the Great Dividing Range into the Australian bush. Explore the outback before heading back through ancient rainforest.
Pickup from Cairns approx 8 am
Firstly, introductions are made so as a result, you’ll be travelling with a bunch of mates for the day. A brief rundown, before heading to our first location on the 4WD Eco Safari.
We introduce you to the tropical rainforest. Stoney Creek was originally Cairns’ drinking water source. You will be taken on an informative walk along the crystal clear stream. After this refreshing rainforest walk before heading up the Great Dividing Range.

Clohsey River Fig Tree
After lunch, we will take you on a spectacular boardwalk. With beautiful water features in addition to the biggest tree, you will probably ever see! A 900-year-old strangler fig – a true giant of the rainforest.
After two river crossings on the 4WD Eco Safari, the rainforest subsequently gives way to the outback. The landscape will change dramatically. We are now in the Aussie Bush with gum trees, giant termite mounds in addition to grassy plains. A surprising location to come across the Emerald Creek Ice Creamery.
