Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours takes you into the beating heart of the Daintree Rainforest on a guided zipline experience through six tree platform and the world's first Human Hamster Wheel cable lift. This is nature's own spectacular high definition live stream, available every day from Cape Tribulation. The guides are with you every step of the way, sharing their wit and wisdom with interpretation on every platform and they also control your flight throughout the tour, so there’s absolutely no experience necessary, making the tour suitable for all ages from three to 103. The platforms range from 3.5 to 19.5 metres above the ground and each one reveals a different level of the rainforest with unique and spectacular views into the canopy, over the treetops, down to cascading streams and out to the Great Barrier Reef (don’t forget your camera!!) There are up to twelve two-hour tours daily, with at least one hour up in the rainforest canopy. It’s essential to book, especially during school holidays.

We had a great couple of hours here. The crew were a blast, fun and entertaining. Great views from above, we all enjoyed it, tame if you want adrenaline.

We have done plenty of these types of challenges within Australia and overseas and it was lame (incredibly slow). The flying fox rides often got stopped by the operators 1/2 way across to slow you down so they could pull you the rest of the...More

We're sorry our tour wasn’t the adrenaline rush you were expecting. We’re very careful with all our marketing material that we don’t position the tour as an adrenaline activity. The tour is structured so all ages can enjoy the ziplines and carefully designed so customers...More

Hi Hayley, the tour picks up from any hotel in Cairns or the Northern Beaches area (Palm Cove etc), or Port Douglas. So there isn't one specific location. If you're not staying at a hotel or resort (eg staying with... More
