wether you like the sun, surf and beaches or a trek through a rainforest, this place is for you. The wild wilderness of the untamed rainforest is a bit daunting so travel with a buddy but the locals are all helpful and friendly and have loads of advice if you just chat with them.

We hired a car and drove up from Port Douglas. We booked one night at a bed and breakfast in the Daintree. The only reason we came here was because my father recommended it!! There is little information provided about this area and its a shame because its so beautiful!! Definately come up here for a visit. Spend a few... More

We had a great time here. Only problem was that we found it hard to get information about the area before arriving and we probably under allocated our time so it was a good thing the ferry runs until midnight! The boardwalks are easy - pretty much anyone can do them and they are all quite different so I'm glad... More

Setting out on this adventure with no expectations and completing it filled with memories and a great adventure is all that once ask for. The journey was a day and could easily have been more. There was enough to do and see to make the day pass quickly. A definite gem for photo taking. Several hikes to choose from, beaches... More

We visit the Daintree almost every year, most recently in November 2014. We just love it up there, breath taking views and scenery, beautiful beaches, wildlife, there is plenty to see and do. There are a number of organised tours you can do but if you have your own car it's easy enough to do on your own. There are... More

THIS IS A MUST DO. I last went in the dry season a couple of years ago, but the Trip Advisor dates don’t go back that far. Having travelled extensively for work and pleasure in Australia, I think that this is one of the MUST dos for locals and visitors alike. It is almost impassable in the wet season, so... More

We did this by car from Port Douglas, via the ferry, and we did Daintree at the same time. A great drive, stunning scenery and lots of walks in the woods. If you are up this way, I strongly recommend this area. It was so good, we came back for a second day.

I ganders my way to the Cape via tour company and couldn't have expected better views! The crabs along the beach make some pretty good photo opportunities with the way they dig their holes.

You should set aside amble time to visit Cap Tribulation National Park especially as the access are either by ferry from the Port Douglas side or by Four week drive (The real stuff - not the sizzy 4x4) from Cooktown. There are really nice nature view and landscape. Be sure to stop and take the board walks through the Rainforest... More
