Surfing through the snakes
SNAKES alive - Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours at Cape Tribulation is scaling new heights with the opening of its new Snake House.
The Snake House, which opened earlier this month, is home to four fabulous pythons, with lizard species and more snakes to be added.
Manager Sheena Walshaw said that she and her staff were happy to be able to offer the attraction for visitors at Cape Tribulation.
“For many people to see snakes up close and personal like this is a real thrill for them because they never see snakes otherwise,” Ms Walshaw said.
“We have many tourists who visit us and they don’t even have snakes in their country and so to see them up this close really excites them.”
Further work is also being done on the property with the building of a large dam that will be the home to a number of turtles that people will be able to interact with.
The Snake House will be open seven days a week from 9am until 6pm and is on the main Cape Tribulation Road, just next to PK’S Jungle Village.
Anyone who spends $20 or more before next Monday with any participating business in the Daintree will also go into the draw to win a “1965 VW Campervan” tent.
