Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours


Jungle Surfing takes you into the beating heart of the Daintree Rainforest on a guided tour through five platforms, six ziplines and the world’s first Human Hamster Wheel cable lift.

The platforms range from 7 to 16 metres above the ground and each one reveals a different level of the rainforest ecosystem with unique and spectacular views into the rainforest canopy, over the treetops, down to a bubbling creek and out to the Great Barrier Reef.

Our Jungle Surfing guides are with you every step of the way, offering interpretive talks on each platform, they also control your flight throughout the tour, so there’s no experience necessary, just a desire to have fun! The two-hour Jungle Surfing tours run in all weathers with at least one hour up in the rainforest canopy. The tours suit all ages from three to 103 and is a “must do” experiences for anyone visiting this beautiful area on the coast of North Queensland, Australia.

Jungle Surfing tours depart up to twelve times a day from Cape Tribulation or you can join our action-packed full day tour from Cairns, Northern Beaches and Port Douglas.


Are the master of encouragement, safety experts and pros at zipping from tree to tree.  With brains overflowing with interesting stories and some great ecology facts, they’ll make sure you have fun and change the way you see the rainforest forever.


Is an area blissfully disconnected from mainland supplies. We operate on renewable energy from solar panels and micro-hydro turbines, and offset our minimal carbon footprint with trees grown onsite and planted in Cape Tribulation.
