"A company that provides
gently adventurous alternative
is Pete Baxendell's
Heritage & Interpretive Tours. On
a day-long rainforest
into a tract of privately owned rainforest with Pete,
a naturalist and
professional tour guide,
you taste green ants (be brave, it's quite an experience) and other
native "bush tucker," discover how to rustle up a toothbrush from a
shrub if you forgot to pack yours, learn about bush medicine and the
wildlife around you, and clamber up a stream to a waterfall. He takes
a maximum 6 people at a time...also
charter for a "go anywhere" adventure
The "go anywhere" charter prices compare favorably to a regular
Daintree four-wheel-drive tour if there's three or more of you--and
you get a
tailored itinerary, Pete's knowledge, and the vehicle all to yourself.
He often takes charter customers inland to Outback gold mining ghost
towns, or north to tiny Cooktown, which boasts an excellent museum
devoted to Australia's "discoverer," Captain James Cook. If you have
two days, he can take you further west to see Aboriginal rock art and
stay at an upscale tented camp, or to the Undara Lava Tubes, which
have been hollowed from rock by lava flows."
