Billy Tea Safaris also guarantee we will run with a minimum of 2 passengers for our Cape Tribulation tour and minimum of 4 passengers for Chillagoe Caves Tour, this means you as the customer will not miss out on a tour or having your holiday wrecked.

We have National Parks Permits to all areas in Daintree / Cape Tribulation / Cape York / Atherton Tablelands / Mungana (Chillagoe) / also permits in other areas of Queensland which allows us more options if flooding in the area, or over crowded on some walks we have options to go to other areas. Rather than having to cancel the trip if flooding in the area.
