Prospective travellers should take warning from this review. The reviewer informs that the booking was made at the information centre near the harbour, inferring that Daintree Rainforest is much closer to Cairns than Kuranda Rainforest. Daintree Rainforest is 124-km north of Cairns whilst Kuranda is 29.1-km. The review undisputedly describes Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, which departs from Smithfield and climbs up... More

My family and I spent a few days in the Daintree, and the experience was unforgettable. In the day, we walked along the boardwalks within the forest. We saw such an incredible array of beautiful plants, giant trees, and incredible animals. We saw many types of birds, some frogs, interesting insects, and a family of wild boar. While we were...

One of the distinguishing features of your review that undoubtedly contributed to your unforgettable experience, was staying a few days in the area. Sadly, the vast majority of travellers do not. Where the average visitor stay was once three nights, it is now two-hours. Not because the destination has driven tourism this way, rather government policy has; in its determination... More

Obviously an incomplete review, in all probability submitted unintentionally. However, as the review landed on my property, I hope this response is not inconsistent with the fuller intention of the reviewer. If the consensus view of forums and tips recommends 'driving through' without engaging with Daintree Rainforest (the property) with its World Heritage inhabitant guides, then not only is the...

Just returned from a visit to the daintree and loved every minute of it. We stayed in a massive private house with pool and barely left we were so comfortable and relaxed.

The Daintree River Ferry is a distinctive gateway to such an astonishing area, that logic would demand an identity for the area being entered. 'Daintree Rainforest' is the logical choice, but public process has steadfastly refused all such requests. The place-name for the area immediately north of the Ferry is Forest Creek. The drive up and over Walu Wujirrika or... More

There are wonderful views of the rainforest and some extensive trails. Additionally, the crossing over the Daintree river and a boat trip are good fun. The latter providing ample crocodile sightings.

We drove through from Mossman to Hutchinson Creek, stopping at Mossman Gorge, various lookout points, Bruce Belcher's for the one hour river cruise and croc spotting. A great day; the sights, sounds and smells of the Rainforest are amazing. The car ferry across the Daintree River was efficient.

What a pity that the immersion into the area stopped short at Hutchinson Creek. Another 7-kilometres or 8-minutes drive further northward and you would have made it to Daintree Rainforest proper. Of course you would also have had to exit the Cape Tribulation Road and enter Daintree Rainforest; an achievement made by only half-a-percent of the half-million or so annual... More

We'd hired a 4x4 expecting to need it for our journey into he rainforest. We travelled from Port Douglas using the Daintree River Ferry at a cost of $25 return. The ferry is available from 6am to midnight and is an experience in itself. There are plenty of stops along the way for refreshments and look out points. We stopped... More

Alexandra Lookout or Walu Wujirriga marks the southern entry to the last fragment of the oldest rainforest in the world. Only three valleys remain, with Cooper Valley at its centre. Climbing up over Noah Range, on the way to Cape Tribulation, leaves Gondwanan Rainforest for much younger, different values. At the centre of the Cooper Valley (2333 Cape Tribulation Road,... More

Decent rainforest, but doesn't match the superlatives one hears in advance - oldest rainforest, one of the top sights to see in Australia (Lonely Planet), etc. Its not very clear first of all how to best see this. One then figures out there are boardwalks. The boardwalks are good, and one does get a feel for the rainforest, but doesn't... More

Daintree Rainforest is the registered trading name of Australia's first compulsorily inscribed private property into World Heritage. It occupies the centrepiece of the oldest surviving rainforest in the world. It is rich with wildlife and definitely has no boardwalks. This review expresses confusion about a location that then describes itself with less than outstanding boardwalks and a lack of wildlife.... More

We took the train up into the Rain forest and it was a great trip. Very well preserved, great activities once you get there. If you are up in the NE corner of Australia (presumably to go the Great Barrier Reef) check out the Daintree Rain forest too!

As a legal inhabitant of Daintree Rainforest I am bemused by the number of reviews posted by travellers that describe other destinations as 'Daintree Rainforest'. This review describes the great train ride up into the Rain forest. This renowned experience departs Cairns, 130-KM south of Daintree Rainforest, and arrives in Kuranda 30-KM north-west of Cairns.
