Jungle Canopy Surfing Info


Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours are unique rainforest tours where your feet donít touch the ground. Fly through the trees on flying fox ziplines, stopping at 5 tree platforms to take in spectacular birdís eye views over the treetops, down to cascading streams and out to the Great Barrier Reef.

Safe, fun, fully guided and with no experience necessary - an adventure activity for all ages.


  • Hotel transfers within Cape Tribulation
  • 1 hour minimum up in the trees (maximum 2 hours tour)
  • All instruction and equipment

Your experience:

  • On arrival at the harnessing centre, youíll meet your team of two to five guides whoíll 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 youíll 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, youíll stop briefly at the highest point of the tour, 23 metres above Mason Creek. If youíre lucky, and visit 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, youíll fly solo and fast back across the creek. Donít 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.
  • The final zipline on Platform 6 is your chance to have a race and go fast if you'd like.  You're paired up on seperate ziplines as the guides let you speed down to the bottom of the course.
  • Then you have short walk back to the harnessing centre where you'll be taken back to the Jungle Adventure Centre or you Cape Tribulation accommodation.
