The Daintree is the oldest tropical rainforest in the world, being 135 million years old. The Wet Tropics World Heritage-listed area of the Daintree Rainforest inspired the movie 'Avatar'.

Home to one of the most complex rainforest ecosystems on Earth; with over 1000 plant species, 1/3 of Australia's mammal species and half of Australia's bird species!... When Sir David Attenborough calls something “the most extraordinary place on earth”, you know it has got to be seen to be believed.

SIGHTSEEING

Indulge your inner Attenborough with an adventurous night walk to see when some of the most intriguing creatures of the rainforest come out to play.

Cruise along the winding waterways of the Daintree River, looking for crocodiles, birds and wildlife you won’t see anywhere else.

Head up to Cape Tribulation, the only place on Earth where two World Heritage-listed areas meet side by side: the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.
