Captain Cook Highway
This is one of the most scenic drives in the world. A short 75km road sandwiched between the coral waters of the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest. This highway is iconic in itself and best enjoyed at a slow pace; it is a road trip on its own. Along the road are various waterfalls, beaches, and hiking trails. There are many incredible sights you can find along the way, and one of them is Kuranda village. This village in itself holds many amazing views, there is the Miranda Scenic Railway. You will also find the Skyrail rainforest cableway here. It is a gondola that rises above the rainforest, giving you a spectacular view of the ocean. Right outside the village, you’ll find the Barron Gorge national park which contains the Barron Fall. So if you don’t mind a diversion on your trip from Cairns to Port Douglas, this is a fantastic place to check out. You will be maximizing your fun experience.
The Captain Cook Highway starts in Cairns, and you will begin enjoying your coastal drive from that point till we get near Mossman where it ends. It is a very popular and busy highway due to tourism in the areas, but you won’t care about this as you enjoy the mountain and coastline views. It connects Cairns to the outstanding tourist destinations such as Daintree National Park, Mossman Gorge, and Port Douglas. Along the way, there are lovely fishing spots that make for wonderful trips on their own. We provide tour services and charters to these fishing spots, which gives you the chance to have on-land fishing. Looking for a way to enjoy a public holiday, book a charter with us and drive down this scenic route to fantastic fishing spots.
