We did this trip on 19th January. The entire "off the main tourist route "experience exceeded our expectations thanks in a big part to our guide Mick from Discovery Tours. Apart from the rainforest and falls themselves a particular highlight was seeing the fantastic Clohesy River Fig Tree.

Simon was very informative, helpful, and just pleasant to everyone on the tour all day long. It was very interesting and a great way to see the rainforest!

Vera S December 2017

This was a very good tour, going through rainforest in a jeep away from the tourists' spots. Recommended

Maria Costanza K October 2017

It was a really nice tour of the Rainforest, we spotted snakes and beautiful scenery, as long as huge trees and prehistorical plants. Our guide was giving us a throughout description of everything we saw around us. Highly recommended

The guide was so nice and he was the best driver ever! Due to no rain at the time when we went there, the barran fall was not bad but not so powerful. Still the tour itself was great!

Rebecca V December 2016

Had a really cool tour. The tour guide Stevan was friendly and could tell me a lot about the rainforest. Everytime i liked to take picture
i could tell him and he stopped the car. He showed me really nice places in the national park and i enjoyed my tour. The Tour was worth it, because it was not that crowded like other tours and the car was new with a good air conditioner also not like in other tours. It was so impressive to see this old trees and got to know the history about the rainforest. My Tour started at 1 pm with a pick up from the hotel, we had a ride with the car and some nice walk stops in the forest, while eating some cookies. Soooo actually that's it, i liked this tour :

Stefan M May 2016

One of the must do!!! events!
The Tour Guide is very friendly and the Tour is a really 4WD-Tour. It is worth the money. Book this Tour!

Thomas M February 2021

Gaining access to some areas of the gorge only possible by 4WD and a knowledgeable tour guide / driver made this half day tour, in retrospect a half day wasn’t enough, it seemed we were always rushed.

Siobhaan T January 2016

Interesting day out had a very informative guide who gave us a lot of information regarding all the trees, and was good to be off the beaten path and get in the heart of the rain forest. Would have liked to have gone to butterfly sanctuary which was closed by the time we arrived in the afternoon but still beautiful scenery

Ketema H November 2017

This was a nice tour, extremely informative, and our tour guide was very nice. However, it is in and out of a van the entire time and I was hoping it was more of an ATV type tour. However, we did enjoy it nonetheless.

Steven Z July 2016

Ride is actually in an all wheel drive van.

For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
