Exclusive Shore Event: Cairns | Daintree National Park, Port Douglas and Lunch
Our day begins where we will become acquainted with our expert guides and board a luxurious coach. Soon after, we will depart up the Eastern Australian coast, along the Coral Sea on Captain Cook Highway. Just as the Pacific Coast Highway is famous in the United States, Captain Cook highway is regarded as one of the most distinguished routes in the world, and forms the Great Tropical Drive. Just miles off the shore is the Great Barrier Reef, the world's largest coral reef system. After just over an hour, we will arrive at the Mossman Gorge Center, located in the World Heritage listed Daintree National Park.
Here, we will join an aboriginal Ngadiku Dreamtime Walk. We will be welcomed by a traditional 'smoking' ceremony, in which indigenous Australians burn various native plants to produce smoke, which is believed to possess cleansing properties, and ward off negative spirits. Our interpretive Indigenous guide will then accompany us on a walk through the stunning rainforest, and introduce us to the aboriginal uses of the plants we come across, as well as identify the local food sources from the bush. Our guide will be able to give us an enchanting narrative explaining the former lifestyle of the Aboriginal Australian people and their special relationship with this unique tropical environment. We'll then stop at 'the Beach' for an opportunity to take a refreshing swim or wade in a water hole where our guide will demonstrate traditions such as making bush soaps and ochre paintings. At the end of our walk, we will enjoy traditional bush tea and damper.
After having worked up an appetite from the meandering walk, we will enjoy an immaculate lunch at the 5-star Silky Oaks Lodge. Silky Oaks is one of the world's most preeminent luxury eco-lodges and provides unparalleled accommodation amongst the Daintree Rainforest. The Treehouse Restaurant presents one of Northern Queensland's most premier dining experiences, and the open-sided restaurant offers sensational rainforest and Mossman River views. As if the ambience was not sufficient, the menu showcases the freshest local produce, and modern Australian cuisine along with European and Asian influences.
Before returning to Cairns, we'll stop by the charming township of Port Douglas. A casual stroll along Macrossan Street, the central artery of the village, will introduce us to a variety of stylish restaurants, cafes, bookshops, and boutiques. Those with a taste for art may stop into one of many local galleries offering phenomenal pieces. At one end of Macrossan Street is the magnificent, palm-fringed Four Mile Beach, a spectacular place to enjoy a lazy afternoon gazing out at the clear blue sea. On the other end is Anzac Park, where the picturesque St Mary's by the Sea chapel stands. We'll have one hour of free time to spend in Port Douglas, before re-boarding the coach to take us back to the ship.
Approximate Length: Eight hours
Suggested Attire: Comfortable, casual wear with walking shoes are recommended. There will be a moderate amount of walking on gently sloped surfaces at Daintree National Park and an opportunity to swim. Walking will be at your discretion during our one hour of free time in Port Douglas.
