COOKTOWN 4WD ADVENTURE
We were picked up on time from our Port Douglas accommodation.
This was an excellent well planned day out which gave everything that was promised.
Our guide Gary was knowledgeable & interesting.
The included morning tea stop was delightful. Lunch at the Lion's Den was spot on.
I was amazed that some of our fellow travellers had room for dinner at Mt Carbine!
Cooktown is lovely, having visited the excellent museum on our last visit, we had a little wander found a shaded spot in the foreshore park and watched the antics of the local birds.
This was a long day out, but well worth the time & money.
We would not hesitate to recommend this superb tour.

This adventure was truly magnificent - next time we hope to perhaps do the adventure overnight as there is so much to see and take in. The tour guide Cath was very informative and was great. An excellent day money well spent.
