This was to be the highlight of my recent trip... finally making it to the Daintree Rainforest. Named after Richard Daintree , a geologist. This area has the oldest part of continuous rainforest in Australia and it's ecosystem is quite complex offering visitors a treat of seeing varieties of fauna, birdlife and animal life that they will not see elsewhere....

Amazing diversity in plants. Really worth taking a walk along one of the boardwalks North of the Daintree River. There really is no other rainforest like this in Australia. When I went I saw two cassowaries, which are very rare large birds, with prehistoric origins.

Just fabulous rain forest, crystal clear creeks, massive ferns & great beach and costal views. Cross over from the ferry and make your way to Cape Tribulation. Plenty of stop offs and ample food and drink locales

There is a very nice store but take the tour and learn how the original people of Australia lived. Take part in a smoke ceremony and short walk through part of this land. It's beautiful.

The first time I visited (2006) was on a family trip, it was a great trip we did everything on our own. The second visit was better because my friend and I did it via tour. Great views, hikes etc!

Really beautiful scenery. Definitely recommend it as one of the attractions to see in the Port Douglas area.

I have been to rainforests all over the world and was quite disappointed in the Daintree. Yes, it's pretty and unspoiled in many parts, but we didn't see any wildlife and most of the areas are the same thing one after another. I did love the areas where the rainforest met the ocean. Some amazingly beautiful beaches, but that was... More

This review should serve as a warning to prospective travellers to the region between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation. The quality of the visitor experience is incredibly variable. I would encourage all prospective travellers who are determined to successfully engage with Daintree Rainforest to click onto the website attached to the property at the top of this listing and...

A brilliant trip into a rainforest showcasing over 400 million years of evolution. I can see how some people may not get the sheer scale of what the region has to show, but for anyone interested in viewing unique plant and animal life, this is a must if you are in the area. We didn't do a tour, but hired... More

‘Daintree Rainforest’, as World Heritage attraction, is only accessible on a guided tour basis. Your review describes a self-drive day trip from Cairns to Cape Tribulation. The boardwalks you visited are features of the Cape Tribulation section of Daintree National Park. I would not have bothered with a response, except for your high recommendation to other travellers not to bother... More

A great day out for our family - loved the dip in a local swimming hole. Saw a cassowary and tasted tropical fruit icecream.

We rented a car in Cairnes for PD stay. Nice drive up, where you take the car ferry into the National Park and explore the roads and beaches. Almost empty in the morning at beaches and stops along the way. The swimming hole was not worth it. The ice cream was totally worth it.
