After the ferry the road is very curvey, but if you stick to it, it gets much better the further you drive. The road has some great ocean views. The rain forest is amazing. Be sure and go on some of the walks. At the end the beach is beautiful. We had a great time doing this at our own... More

The drive in is spectacular to Cape Tribulation. Once there everything is easy to access and made for wheelchairs to. The beach is like being on an Island in the middle of nowhere. We saw many butterflies as we walked around.

The rainforest was stunning and worth the drive and ferry trip. The ferry was super efficient and the beaches were spectacular. Great day trip from Port Douglas.

We decided to take a couple of drives up to the Daintree from Port Douglas. Despite the rain we still enjoyed the visits between showers. Well worth the visit

Took a tour out of Cairns into the Daintree, had a good look around and even had a boat ride down the river, it was the heaviest rain I had seen for a long time, but still got out there, we saw two crocs in the river, which was lucky. This is a beautiful area and a must see if... More

Well worth spending a day or two exploring the hikes, beaches and rain forest flora and fauna. I only wish we had more time to explore.
