Far north Queensland has much to offer! (especially in winter). I took a tour to this part of the world in July 2021 and straight away decided to write an itinerary for 2002 including most of the 2021 tour but adding some extra days to make it possible to travel to Cooktown and the Atherton tablelands.
The plan is to fly into Cairns airport and pick up a coach to head to Port Douglas for 3 nights in the beautiful Peppers resort. We will visit Mossman Gorge, the amazing Botanical Ark, and a full day on the Barrier Reef with Quicksilver tours. When we leave Port Douglas we will do a Daintree River cruise before heading through Daintree rainforest to Cape Tribulation. This part of the tour will be conducted in an off road coach so that we can continue up the Bloomfield track to Cooktown. Should be spectacular. In Cooktown we will do the usual sightseeing highlights including a sunset cruise on the Endeavour River. Next is 2 nights on the Atherton tablelands to visit some farming enterprises, museums, gardens and national parks. We will leave the tablelands to visit Mamu skywalk and Paronella Park near Innisfail before arriving in Cairns for 3 nights in our resort style hotel. In Cairns we plan on a full day in Kuranda traveling up via the Scenic Railway and back by the Skyrail. We will also visit a few gardens and may a nursery or 2.
I think the tour represents good value for money with many tour inclusions and meals.
