Fun day! Do it :)

I mostly took this tour to ride in the military amphibious boat. Expert driver and went from land to water and back again. Quite the experience! Rainforestation was fun as well but a bit rushed running from event to event. I got 2 tries throwing a boomerang so that was fun! The rail back to Cairns was also good. Pretty scenic.

This was a great, well organised tour. Our guide George was friendly and very interesting and the accommodation was comfortable. The food served at the beach house was amazing but a bit pricey and the wonderful beach could be accessed easily from our rooms. All activities were excellent. The only disadvantage was that we were unclear as to what the daily agenda was, but it was easy enough to ask people who worked at the beach house for clarification. It should also be highlighted in the description of the tour that there isn't a lot to do in the free afternoons if you don't have a car. It is possible to book on to additional tours I recommend the night walk, go to the beach or go for walks though. This tour was well worth the money and I would highly recommend it.

Excellent tour - great range of activities and beautiful accommodation. Only issue was the fact that at no point did we get an itinerary, and so we did not know what was happening from one day to the next, or even throughout each day. This left us a little confused at times and unsure where we needed to be.
