Daintree Rainforest

The Daintree Rainforest encompasses an area of approximately 950 square miles, from the Daintree River north to Cooktown and west to the Great Divide, representing the single largest block of tropical rainforest in Australia. The Daintree is part of the Wet Tropics of Queensland UNESCO World Heritage site and the landscape is one of striking diversity including magnificent scenery, mountain ranges, fast flowing streams and waterfalls, deep gorges and dense rainforest.

Within the Daintree region there are many natural and unique features to be explored. Immerse yourself in the multitude of activities available, such as zip-lining through the rainforest canopy or drift snorkelling along the Mossman River. Your indigenous guide will teach you about the traditions of their ancestors who, for thousands of years, educated visitors about their Kuku Yalanji culture. By learning their hunting and gathering techniques, you witness the close connection they have with their land.
