Destination Daintree

Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours

There’s a new species in the world’s oldest rainforest… the JUNGLE SURFER!

Set in the pristine Daintree Rainforest at Cape Tribulation, around 1.5 hours drive north of Port Douglas and 3 hours north of Cairns, the multi award winning Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours take you on a unique rainforest journey where your feet don’t touch the ground!

Jungle Surfing is a series of eco-friendly tree platforms and flying fox zipline cables through the ancient Daintree Rainforest. The fully guided tours are a memorable mixture of exhilaration and education.

You’ll start with the “Human Hamster Wheel” – harnessing the energy of enthusiastic jungle surfers to hoist riders up to the first tree platform. Then you’ll glide through the different levels of the canopy, with bird’s eye views over the treetops, down to cascading streams and out to the Great Barrier Reef.

The longest span is over 75 metres and the platforms range from 3.5m to 19.5m high, offering an “up-close and personal” experience with nature at her spectacular best, and incredible photo opportunities.

The tour is fully guided – three guides to maximum 13 guests – and no experience is necessary. The abseiling and scientist guides share their rainforest wit and wisdom with interpretive talks on each platform and the team use a unique system to control your flight, making this the only flying fox in the world where you can fly hands-free and carefree.

And the flight choice is yours – slow, fast or even upsidedown, if you dare!

One of Queensland’s “must do” experiences, Jungle Surfing is suitable for all ages from three to 103.

Tours depart eight times daily from Cape Tribulation or you can join our action packed full day tour from Cairns, Northern Beaches and Port Douglas.
