After much pressure from my husband to visit the Daintree I finally relented...... Why did I wait so long!!?? Defiantly one of the most spectacular days of my life. The wonderful pristine beaches and serenity - Cape Tribulation and Noah's beach a highlight for me. Whether you have a day or longer don't bypass this magical part of Australia.

We did a tour and had a tour guide who was well informed about the location pointing out reference to things not to touch and what to look our for as well as explaining the beauty of how creation adapts to situations as natural events occur. How the trees grow and why so many vines are evident from some of... More

Loved the drive and trying to spot various types of wildlife and plant life. Never saw the elusive Cassowaries.

We visited the Daintree and Cape Tribulation driving ourselves. It was a great day stopping at several places on the way. A barge takes your car across the river. Several beach areas to call into along the way.

We just did a drive through, it was raining and we're not into a lot of the tourist things. The drive to PK's and back to the ferry was about 3-4 hours. We did stop for a coffee along the way. The road was sealed, but it looks like they took a lot of care the way the road meanders... More

DaintreeRainforest, Owner at Daintree Rainforest, responded to this review

Writing that you're 'not into a lot of the tourist things' is interesting, in the sense that government tourism management between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation has long sought to encourage travellers to do exactly what you have described. In such a context, the non-tourist thing would be to go against the flow and actually get into the rainforest... More

A great days drive from Port Douglas, approx one hour and your on the Barge across the river. Then the adventure begins. A lovely rain forest drive on a tar sealed road, stopping off at various attractions along the way. We came across Cassawarai's a few times, two of them had a little chick with them, but don't go near... More

DaintreeRainforest, Owner at Daintree Rainforest, responded to this review

Cassowaries are federally declared Endangered species and seeing a 'few', two with chicks, is exceptionally lucky. It is good advice to not go near them. If you would like to learn more about the global significance of cassowaries and their ancient habitat, next time you visit, consider the website link in the property' address at the top of the product...

Daintree Rainforest is just beautiful. Lush and exotic, you will be delighted with the scenery. We did however struggle to find somewhere to eat a late lunch around 2pm. Most either finished the lunch times or just ran out of food. We ended up at Lync-Haven which was terrific and even had a couple of hand reared Pythons you could... More

DaintreeRainforest, Owner at Daintree Rainforest, responded to this review

The number of food-houses between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation has dramatically reduced, since the intergovernmental policy of re-directing tourism to areas south of the Daintree River has been implemented. Spending a number of nights in one of the accommodation houses is not prohibited, but through policy implementation and traveller response, the average length of stay reduced from three... More

A 1/2 hours drive North of Port Douglas and a bit of a wait for the ferry crossing, but well worth it. Planned on visiting the Discovery Centre, but first took the boardwalk through the rainforest. This was so good, we felt no need to pay for entry into what would have been a similar experience. Only fault we could... More

DaintreeRainforest, Owner at Daintree Rainforest, responded to this review

I'm quite sure the owner's of the Daintree Discovery Centre would contend that their multi-award-winning visitor experience is profoundly different to a public boardwalk! Nevertheless, the review raises a serious concern for fair trade. There are enough publicly-funded boardwalks between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation to cater for 700,000 visitors per year (about 150% more than annual visitation would... More

I love coming here, it's just magical knowing it's the oldest rainforest in the world and there is so much culture here. It's just as beautiful when it rains as it is on a sunny day. Watching a storm from the lookout is one of the most breath taking experiences. There's quite a few attractions, jungle surfing and the discovery... More
