Tours in Cow Bay

The only tours based locally in Cow Bay are the overnight seakayaking tour to Snapper Island run by Crocodylus, the Cow Bay horse riding tour at the airstrip, and some nightwalks run by Crocodylus and the Wilderness Lodge.
Most other tours are based at Cape Tribulation, and you will need to find your own way up there, they only do the free courtesy transfers from accommodation in Cape Tribulation.
See more info on the Cape Tribulation tours here, and there is also the crocodile spotting tour on Cooper Creek, about ten minutes north of Cow Bay at Thornton Beach.

Other things in Cow Bay

Opposite Buchanan Creek Road, the turnoff to Cow Bay Beach, there is a car mechanic who is also the local RACQ depot, handy if you develop some car trouble. Around this turnoff are also Floravilla where you can sample home made icecream, the Cow Bay Hotel where you can have a beer and meet some locals, and an airstrip, if you like to fly in or out then you can land small planes here.

Cow Bay Beach is at the end of Buchanan Creek Road and has three secluded bays perfect for relaxing, swimming and snorkeling on the inshore reefs and also fishing and beach walking. There are always shady spots on these beaches. Guided sea kayaking can be booked locally at Crocodylus Village. To see the beach from the air click the Google map below to satellite view, this will also show you how much rainforest there is here.

You can experience some rainforest by visiting the Jindalba boardwalk near the Daintree Discovery Centre.

Just north of Cow Bay is the Daintree Icecream Company, where they make icecream out of exotic fruits with flavours you have probably never heard of.
A little further north again just before Cooper Creek is the Daintree Entomological Museum, where they have an awesome collection of insects and butterflies on display.

If there happens to be a cricket match on while you are there go and check it out to taste a bit of local flavour. There has been long running rivalry between the Cow Bay and Cape Tribulation cricket teams and the mix of cricket and alcohol makes an entertaining day.
