We took this full-day optional tour as part of our Globus holiday and were very glad we did. We had an excellent guide who for decades has been working in the rainforest and who instilled in us his love for it. Extraordinary nature sites that are not seen elsewhere in the world.

Another in a seemingly endless sequence of reviews that I dutifully re-direct back to TripAdvisor as being misplaced, only to be overruled, as if TripAdvisor staff know better than the owner of Daintree Rainforest. The reviewer states: "We took this full-day optional tour as part of our Globus holiday ..." and despite explaining that this is an admission that they... More

Nature at its best! The Daintree Rainforest should be on everyone's Bucket list! So much wildlife and fauna to see! Nothing else like it in the world! A must have treat, ice cream from Cow Bay, 26 flavours means more trips to the Daintree to try them all. The ferry across the Daintree takes few minutes and is that start... More

Nice review, except for the lack of a proper identity to attach to. 'Daintree Rainforest' is the official name of a World Heritage-listed property 20-KM north of the Daintree River, immediately north of the Cooper Creek causeway and to the left-hand-side of the road heading northwards. It occupies the centrepiece of the last fragment of the oldest rainforest in the... More

I took the Viator sponsored day trip to Daintree National Forest, Mossman Gorge, Cape Tribulation, the Wildlife Sanctuary and a boat ride on the Daintree River. It was 11 hours, but a lot of it was riding on a nice air conditioned bus. Our guide, Eddie, was a raconteur with informative, funny stories. He even offered to pass the microphone... More

Maybe after a month in Australia we had seen enough rainforest of various kinds and proportions but Daintree was no more beautiful than many of the other free national parks we visited along the way. The hype about Daintree is just that, hype. Sure it is cool to take a ferry to it but it is quite crowded and much... More

I loved our day travelling through the Daintree!! I travelled this road in the 80's when it was unmade and you needed a 4 wheel drive to go though rivers and negotiate unmade roads but that is no longer needed up to Cape Tribulation. It is so lovely to stop along the way at stunning beaches. We purchased a tour... More

Your experience deserves to be re-directed to Daintree Rainforest Self-drive Audio Tours, but my recommendation to re-direct didn't meet with TripAdvisor's list of experiences. The area your review describes frustratingly does not have a formal identity. Local government describes the area as 'north of the Daintree River', which could also include Vladivostok, but all attempts to get a government gazetted... More

Daintree rainforest is about 75 km from cairn not far from port Douglas and it's beautiful with magnificent views and beaches. To come there you have to take the ferry.

Daintree Rainforest is in fact 130-km from Cairns; 58-km from Port Douglas and 20-km north of the Daintree River ferry crossing. Access is regulated by prior bookings, with either 2-hour or 4-hour guided interpreted walking tours only. The website link at the top of the profile page provides prospective travellers with the necessary details for a successful engagement. More

The walk through the rainforest is magical. We were enchanted by clear little streams and falls, lovely light, and beautiful trees. Go there.

Worth the drive, so picturesque. The sand is beautiful and the water warm. Probably best to ask a local about best times for swimming. Call into the Information Hut just before the gravel road for helpful service and a cool drink,

A great way to spend 4-5 hours in a rainforest habitat while also getting some exercise. Be sure to take plenty of water to drink as the humidity makes the trekking thirsty work, but it is well worth the effort.

The only way to achieve this reviewer's advice is to book onto a 4-hour Greater Wilderness Experience, which takes a maximum of 12-persons and runs only once per day, at either 8.30 AM or 1.00 PM (whichever is booked first). There are some days when it does not run at all, as the only guide may be pre-booked for one... More

Doing a bit of pre reading on this spectacular wonder of the world will only enhance the experience. This place should be on everyone's bucket list . Just get there !! sadly it's probably a bit wasted on kids that are not interested, so my advice would be to leave the screen watchers at home. Do some research on the... More
