We visited in Sept 2014 and I have to say this was one of my favorite parts of the trip! Daintree Rainforest is an amazing place and just incredible the amount of plants, trees and weird creatures in this country. We drove both directions of the Daintree road all the way up to where the pavement ends and then turned... More

We went to the Daintree Forest during the first week of the Victorian school holidays. We waited an hour in the queue to get our car across the river on the ferry; the ferry only took about 5 minutes but is the only way you can get across. That cost $25 return. The forest itself is huge and we had... More

Make sure you have a map of where you want to go and see. It is a poorly sign posted road and all the services/sights/facilities etc are off the main road and hidden by the bush. Great for keeping the area as natural as possible but it is really easy to drive past where you wanted to go because of... More

From crossing the river by barge to the first and last sight seeing stop (Cape Tribulation), a jaw dropping, mesmerizing experience of free natural beauty only granted by nature.

Go early to avoid the que on the ferry. You do need cash for the ferry $26 return. The rainforest is beautiful. Take your time to do the walks and don't forget the insect repellant. The beaches are beautiful just watch the crocs

DaintreeRainforest, Owner at Daintree Rainforest, responded to this review

The beauty of Daintree Rainforest has a multitude of faces and depths of intricacy that the majority of self-driving travellers bypass without knowing. The website link at the top of the Daintree Rainforest product page, next to the telephone number and address, assists with a more successful engagement with the attraction. Ferry queues can be atrocious and the winter school... More

Beautiful spot. Came here mainly to see the GBR but I have say the natural beauty of the wold heritage site and uniqueness of the worlds oldest rainforest means it should not be missed. The wildlife and one of kind vegetation is awe inspiring.

The owner, Neil, who was our guide was so knowledgeable about the forest that we felt like we'd taken a terrific college level class. His passion for the forest and all the creatures there was contagious. We learned about the biology of the forest. We learned about uses of the native plants by aboriginal people. We talked about the environmental... More

Took the Greater Wilderness Experience tour with Neil and it was incredible! Saw a some reptiles, spiders and birds, and a huge variety of plants. However, the heart of the tour was Neil's great description of the lifecycle of the various animals and plants and how those lifecycles tie in with other animals and plants. It was great to see...

An amazing experience to visit such a unique habitat. Thought provoking in the inter-dependencies between species that are highlighted and packed full of flora, fauna and exotic wonders. Access is primarily via raised walkways. Suitable for most with a reasonable degree of fitness. It could be suitable for wheelchair access in all but the most inaccessible areas. Be sure to... More
