Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness Cape Tribulation, Australia
#2 of 74 Nature & Parks in North Queensland
The Daintree Rainforest is a unique ecological gem - it is the only place on Earth where the forests are much as they were 100 million years ago.To me it is like a botanical Jurassic Park.
This was a huge awakening about the diversity of a very ancient....millions of years old.. ...brief introduction to the evolution of nature.

Daintree National Park Cape Tribulation, Australia
#5 of 74 Nature & Parks in North Queensland
The very large Daintree National Park is a wonderful and mind boggling experience, wildlife, flora, fauna all preserved and protected with sensitivity to the traditional owners.
I strongly recommend that you drive all the way to Cape Tribulation (love that name), and stop at all the viewpoints and walk all of the park trails through wonderful tropical forests along the way.

It is an interesting drive to Wooroonooran National Park as you pass Queenslands tallest mountain, Bartle Frere.
A short walk from the car park and a gorgeous spot to enjoy the view or take a swim if the water flow is right.

Marrdja Botanical Walk Cape Tribulation, Australia
#9 of 74 Nature & Parks in North Queensland
A longer board walk to go deeper into the forest would be good - please note National Parks.
But very well worth it, if you love nature.

For the nature lover spend time in hatchling season and you will see juvenile black tip reef sharks patrolling the shoreline for chicks wondering too far into the water.
This is a very restricted nature reserve, to help protect the nesting birds, so heed the advice of the crew.

Our 3 and 5 year old were mesmerized with all the displays, and the gentle education nature of the signage meant they picked up fun facts without feeling 'schooled' The surprise at the end could keep you captivate...
If you can get a spot outside Munro Park it is only a very short walk to the Aquarium.

Behana Gorge Waterfall Cairns, Australia
#15 of 74 Nature & Parks in North Queensland
The walk to the falls is several kilometres going up so give yourself several hours of visiting time so you can get to the falls and relax for a while before returning to the car park.
We walked up from the car park and found it to be a pretty easy walk with just the final 800meters a bit steep.

... free tour which included a talk on the butterfly's cycle of life they had information signs around the park with photos them so you could identify them, which was fun, some of the butterfly's would land on you...

Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas Port Douglas, Australia

We went for a breakfast with the birds and then a walk through the park, great little zoo showing Australian wildlife like crocs, cassowaries, koalas and lots of kangaroos you can feed and pet.
The whole experience of a leisurely wander through the natural park was quite special, watching a wide variety of native birds and animals leisurely feeding.

Birdworld Kuranda Kuranda, Australia
#21 of 74 Nature & Parks in North Queensland
We love visiting bird parks around Australia and although this one is small, it has soo many beautiful birds for those patient enough to actually look or sit and wait for them to come to you.
Birdworld is a small park with just one large aviary, but it's a really good one with plenty of space for the birds to fly and lots of friendly birds of all kinds.
