Jungle Surfing is a unique and exhilarating way to experience the beauty of the world-renowned Daintree Rainforest. Rainforest has more strata than any other terrestrial ecosystem, and can only be truly appreciated by getting up into the canopy.
With its low-impact system of platforms and cables, Jungle Surfing offers unparalleled access to the heart of the Daintree from the bustling forest floor to the giants that tower above the canopy. But it's not just about the forest. We're passionate about our amazing environment and all the weird and wonderful creatures within it, and we'd love you to see and share that passion. We want you to have fun with our team, feel the excitement we feel every day as we fly through the trees, rediscover your sense of adventure, and take away a new understanding and appreciation of the vibrant and intricate life of the rainforest.
We know for some it can be a little scary to leave the ground behind and scale the heights, but we hope you'll embrace the challenge and feel the wonder. Our highly trained team of scientists, tour guides and abseiling specialists will be with you every step of the way to guide you safely through the canopy and into our treetop world.

On arrival at our harnessing centre, you'll meet your team of two to five guides who'll be taking you surfing through the jungle. Each guest will be fitted into a full body harness and helmet.
A 250m walk through the forest leads to the Exit platform, where you'll be given a safety briefing before leaving the forest floor and being winched one by one up to Platform 1. Jungle Surfing uses no motors and your ascent to the first platform is completely man powered!
On each platform, a guide will greet you, connect you safely to the tree, and introduce you to different elements of the forest before sending you on your way to the next platform.
From Platform 1 to 2 and from Platform 2 to 3, you will travel in pairs a few metres apart. The guides completely control your gentle flight, leaving you free to take photographs or just take in the views. Midway between Platforms 2 and 3, you'll stop briefly at the highest point of the tour, 23 metres above Mason Creek. If you're lucky, and visit us during wet season, this creek will be a raging torrent of white water.
From Platform 3 to 4, in a beautiful section of old-growth rainforest, you'll fly solo and fast back across the creek. Don't forget to give us your best Tarzan cry!
Your final flight from Platform 4 to 5 is an opportunity for thrill seekers to try something different, and if you choose to do so, you can flip yourself upsidedown and watch the ground beneath you speed past.
From Platform 5, there is a short walk back to the harnessing centre where you'll have a brief opportunity to buy Jungle Surfing t-shirts, souvenirs and drinks before departing the property.
The tour itself takes around 2 hours from pick-up to drop off, and you'll spend around 1-1.25 hours up in the trees, with plenty of time on each platform to experience the forest environment.
Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Children between 12 and 17 years may Jungle Surf unaccompanied. However, all persons under 18 must have our Medical Declaration & Waiver Release signed by a parent or guardian prior to the tour. Jungle Surfing is not recommended for pregnant women.
