Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours take 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 saw this during our research of what to do around Port Douglas - even though it's about an 1.5hrs drive up, it was really good fun and the drive was beautiful through the Daintree rainforest. Jungle surfing is not something I thought I would...More

Hi, we do have free parking available at our central meeting point the Jungle Adventure Centre. We would suggest allowing 2 hours from Port Douglas but if you're travelling in the school holidays i would suggest allowing 3... More
Are you ziplining from platform to platform or is there climbing and/or obstacle course work involved? I am hoping it is the former. I just did the latter at Go Ape in South Carolina/USA and while I loved the ziplining part, the multiple rope latter climbs and sometimes heartstopping "crossings" between platforms (yes, there were 40 of them!) just about did me in. I have more than a touch of vertigo for such feats. They have videos of Go Ape for North Myrtle Beach South Carolina on you tube if you want to better see what I am talking about - best one is 4:08 long and was posted on 8/8/15. We are already booked with you for early June - but just checking so I know what to prepare for - if it is just zippling between platforms i will be fine!

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
