Took a boardwalk at one stop and explored on some others, it is beautiful. Saw lots of plants and trees and got a good close up of a cassowary and its chick. Very quiet and peaceful, plan on getting the ferry and spending a whole day here.

We travelled from Port Douglas to Cape Tribulation by car, taking in the Visitor Centre first which involved an entry fee of 32$ each. It's an audio guided tour and about an hour's walk around a small area of the forest and canopy. I would think a guided tour would be of more value. We stopped off at all the... More

It is great that your experience won a five-star review but it is also regrettable that you missed your mark. The Visitor Centre is an attraction within its own right, with a TripAdvisor identity of 'Daintree Discover Centre'. The property that your review landed upon specialises in small-group, guided, interpreted walking-tours through the middle of the world's oldest rainforest, with... More

I literally had no idea what to expect as we drove toward the Daintree Rainforest, although there's no mistaking when you arrive! The whole atmosphere is magical! The sounds, climate and sights are like nothing I've ever seen. Be sure to explore on foot and enjoy the various viewing points along the road. Also, you must take the river ferry... More

Alas, you mistakenly did not arrive; at least not at the property that your review was directed towards. Like so many travellers before you, the itinerary implied by 'taking the ferry in the day and again at dusk' describes what is referred to as 'popular day-visitation' from the dormitory centres of (usually) Cairns or Port Douglas. Had you availed yourself... More

We decided to self tour the rainforest and glad we did! Hiring a car allowed us to stop where and for how long we wanted at each walk and the discovery Centre. Pack for all weather as rain moved in extremely fast and we didn't have so much as a cardigan to protect us! There were little general stores along... More

DaintreeRainforest, Owner at Daintree Rainforest, responded to this review

This decision to 'self tour the rainforest' is made by the vast majority of travellers that head northward across the Daintree River ferry, but so are they led this way by substantial subsidisation. The string of publicly-funded boardwalks are designed to give self-drive travellers (at least the illusion of) free-entry experiences, that, as the reviewer has noted, each offer something... More

Nature at its best! Beautiful place to visit and even better to end at Cape Tribulation and see the only place the reef meets the rainforest. We drove ourselves so we could do our own thing and at our pace. Even if you just drive through it, it is definitely worth the trip!

A bit cold in August, intersecting trip on the river. It is also great for a walk in the rainforest.

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
