Bridget was knowledgeable and welcoming, spearfishing was fun to experience, and the walk at Mossman Gorge was unforgettable. On the way back to Cairns after a very full day, Bridget related some wonderful stories about her... More

Our guide Bridgette was very knowledgeable throughout our Daintree forest walk. We enjoyed a swim in the fresh water river which helped cool us off. We had hoped that more of the "specialized cultural knowledge" of the fellow doing the smoking ceremony, would have been shared with our group (we just got the Readers Digest version). Time was pressed as... More
