Intrepid joins the dots on Far North Queensland - Cairns, Kuranda, the Daintree, Cooktown and the tableland. Snorkel the Reef, it's special. Included breakfasts are great to start the big days. The drives are broken up well with forests, waterfalls and beaches (watch for crocs). The Sovereign Resort in Cooktown topped it off.
