Company History

The first BTS Tour took place during a politically tempestuous time when the road from Cape Tribulation to the Bloomfield River was under construction. That first departure in November 1984 was just two weeks after the opening of the road that established the first coastal link to Cooktown, known as the Bloomfield Track.

Bloomfield Track Safaris, now known as BTS Tours, was established in 1985. Three times a week for 18 years we hosted guests along the Bloomfield Track for a two-day tour to Cooktown. For two years we also operated day tours to the Bloomfield Falls in what was our first 4WD tour.

On June 15 1987, Prime Minister Bob Hawke confirmed the World Heritage Listing of the wet tropical rainforests from Cooktown to Cardwell at a ceremony held at the Mossman Gorge.

Since then our focus has shifted from the Bloomfield Track to the Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation. During this historic period BTS Tours pioneered many facets of day tours in the area, giving our guests the real opportunity to interact with the various habitats that collectively comprise the Tropical Rainforest environment.
