It was great to see the Gorge and National Park only accessible by 4WD. The tour guide / driver was very knowledgeable and keen to interact, a great character. With a short stop for some of the group to swim it made the tour a bit rushed, in retrospect I would have chosen a full day tour (if available)
We did this trip on 19th January. The entire "off the main tourist route "experience exceeded our expectations thanks in a big part to our guide Mick from Discovery Tours. Apart from the rainforest and falls themselves a particular highlight was seeing the fantastic Clohesy River Fig Tree. Greg and Jocelyn, Sunshine Coast.
I took this trip as a last minute booking. I had wanted to visit other places but due to Covid-19 tours are not operating daily and my stay was unable to be extended to be able to take any other tours. Darryl was our guide and he was very informative and personable. Barron Falls was pretty barren as it is not wet season. The Clohesy river fig tree was quite cool to see. I enjoyed the off road part of the trip. Going across creeks in a 4WD was pretty cool. I appreciated that Darryl stopped to let me take pictures in Palm Cove as we dropped off passengers. Overall this trip is probably better taken in the wet season to get the most out of the waterfalls.
The guide was an expert on the ecology of the rainforest and the dry bush and the difference between the different areas. Obviously with the bushfires in New South Wales and Victoria there was an emphasis on environmental management which was interesting. Whilst the guide was very smart I didn't book the tour thinking that I would be given an education. I was hoping for something a bit more entertaining so if that is what you are looking for this is not the tour for you. The limited activity is a problem as the advertising suggests that you will go swimming and walk around the rain forest (we did this for around 5 minutes). We were not offered the opportunity to swim which was disappointing as it was one of the main reasons we booked this tour.
