Cooper Creek Wilderness is famous for its magnificent Fan Palm Galleries. This rainforest-relict from Gondwana is inspirational and exceptional. Old-world rainforest, pristine and primitive, needs to be experienced on a guided interpreted tour with a local expert to fully appreciate its rarity and complexity. We recommend both day and night tours.

The guide at the Cooper Creek Wilderness was the best at describing the uniqueness and the wonder of the rainforest's plants & animals. How, for example, some trees actually promote certain animals at different times for the benefit of both the animal and the tree---fascinating! The guide was so thorough in helping us to recognize the value to this earth... More

This was a huge awakening about the diversity of a very ancient....millions of years old.. ...brief introduction to the evolution of nature. Gob smacking experience. To not go here would be an injustice to your senses.

This area is unique - Compared to the rest of the Daintree (which itself is a tiny fragment of what once was) the low-land forest around coopers creek is just a tiny spec. But it is the best representation of the ancient wilderness that once covered not just Australia but all of Gondwana. The owners of the property Neil and... More

Our group had a private tour of the wilderness by a wonderful lady. The rainforest was beautiful and her detailed explanations of the interactions of the plants and animals and insects was fascinating.

I did the 4 hour Greater Wilderness tour with Neil, and it was great! As a member of the only homestead on a world heritage site, Neil clearly lived and breathed the landscape that we were walking through and he not only pointed out amazing features and animals, but contextualized them in Australian ecological history as well as his own...

We did a 4 hour morning walk with Neil around his world heritage property. Neil's knowledge is extensive and he is clearly passionate about the land and his responsibility to maintain it for the future. We saw a number of Boyd's dragons, camouflaged spiders, ancient trees and vines, a range of insects, primitive fungi and other vegetation.

We opted for the four hour walking toir with the croc cruise afterwards, and the tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Many people are looking to tick a box of different animals they see there but this tour was a learning experience discovering how the ecosystem of the forest compliments itself to sustain it's existence.
