Private Guiding

Our experienced local guide, Lawrence Mason, gives you time to see, touch, smell and even taste the Far North Queensland rainforest - on your tour he will provide amazing information and answer your questions about the tropical rainforest plants and trees, birds, insects, frogs, forest dragons, snakes and crocodiles to give you a unique wilderness experience and unforgettable memories of your visit to the World Heritage Listed Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation National Park.

Lawrence Mason has lived at Cape Tribulation all his life, and has been a tour guide since he was 17 years old. Today he guides on request only, please email if you would like to book a tour with him. It is best to give as much notice as possible. Lawrence is not available all year. He has significant custody of his daughter and runs other local businesses and farms Bananas and Cocoa. However he is often able to guide for interested visitors.


Mason's Cafe

Mason’s Café offers lunches near a beautiful crocodile/ stinger free swimming hole. We offer local products, including tea, coffee, fruit and fish, specialising in exotic meats, with Kangaroo, Crocodile, Emu, Camel, Buffalo and Wild Boar all available. There is a selection of tasting plates on offer, that feature various combinations of exotic meats with Choko and either Breadfruit or Taro Chips. Jakfruit burgers are available seasonally.

Mason’s Café tries to source as much as we can locally. We use Misty Mountains milk, Mungalli Yoghurt, Daintree Tea, Tichum Creek Coffee, and fish caught off the Daintree Coast. Breadfruit is farmed on our property, and Taro sourced in Mossman. Prime Atherton Tableland Kirra Koppa beef from Marsh Butchers in Cairns is used for burgers and steak sandwiches, and Stanpol Continental Smallgoods in Cairns make our ham and hot dogs.

We also pride ourselves on making as much food as we can onsite. We make our burgers in house, our own sauces where possible, and many crumbed or battered items are made to order. You can taste the difference. We also offer a good range of gluten free alternatives, even burgers!

Near the Café is an amazing freshwater swimming hole. Entry is by $1 fee, and here you can cool off in a croc free and stinger free waterhole full of native fish.
