Discovery Tours is the only company with permits to access restricted rainforest areas, parts of which are World Heritage listed. After all guest picks up are done (and they don't take long with only 6 passengers maximum) you will be viewing amazing rainforest regions within about 15 minutes.

Please note the itinerary is reversible; you will visit Surprise falls at the Barron Falls hydro-electric plant, then move on to view Copperload Dam (Lake Morris), after crossing the dam wall you head into true rainforest. Viewing giant King Ferns with huge newly budding leaves at their centre that look like a curled possums tail. There are several creek crossings (during wet season) which makes this 4WD adventure a lot of fun and you come out at the Clohesy Fig Tree.

The best feature to this tour is the low guest numbers, a genuine 4WD experience, incredible world heritage listed rainforest pockets to view and no other tour companies do this itinerary. This tour is very unique and the best part is that it is all only takes half a day.  Time permitting, we may do a short tour through Kuranda Village, or if you opt to add on the Skyrail or Train option (extra cost) - you will have some free time to explore the village centre and its markets.

The company owners and drivers are quite flexible and will always try to accommodate special requests e.g. varied times if a private charter, linking up with the Kuranda Scenic Railway or Skyrail or a half day reef trip. If space is permitting in the vehicle they will even pick you up from, or drop you off to the airport. Definitely a must do rainforest tour if you only have half a day.
