Daintree Afternoon Nocturnal Nature and Wildlife Tour

Personalisation – Our groups are small, amplifying the quality of our nature and wildlife interaction.

Eco-friendly – We cruise with a solar electric boat operator. The vessel is quiet and a completely clean and green machine.

Afternoon advantages – We are heading IN to the National Park when other operators are heading OUT! Our late finish affords us peaceful trails and empty beaches

Observe what we casually call, the ‘shift swap’. Animals that are active during the day become more excitable at dusk, right as the nocturnal creatures come out to play!

Nocturnal component – Very few visitors to the area have the option to go into the “Oldest continually growing rainforest in the world, at night!”

We had such a great day with Kelvin. His knowledge and hosting was exceptional and we loved his passion for his job! From the time we were picked up until we were dropped off we felt like we were in the best hands. Can’t wait to visit again soon!

A really enjoyable day! Our guide Matt was awesome. Very engaging, passionate and knowledgeable. Even our unenthusiastic 13 year old son had a great day. Saw heaps of crocs from babies to the big daddy so the kids were happy. So much beautiful plant life, wildlife and birdlife and really special to see it all in an intimate private but guided experience.

My family were visiting my beautiful backyard of Cairns for the first time as a family so naturally, I wanted to give them the best experience possible! FNQ Nature Tours did not disappoint! Matt was an exceptional guide offering vast knowledge of the area and local wildlife. He even showed us how to find the extremely rare and fascinating Peppermint Stick Insect! We loved the whole day and would highly recommend this to any travellers to the area.

James is an amazing tour guide! Right from the beginning he made us feel so welcomed and accommodated transportation for us. He is very knowledgeable and knows the rainforest as if it was his own backyard! Touring the rainforest during the evening was definitely experience with less crowds and different night life. We would 100% recommend James! He is great.

Wow we had an amazing trip with James. He is an extremely knowledgeable and upbeat tour guide and made our entire experience a time we will never forget. From seeing two crocodiles, many birds, plants and even mammals, he could answer all questions we had. Not to mention the dinner was INCREDIBLE. We would 10000% recommend this tour and James to anyone in the tropical North Queensland area!
