Attraction details
Owner description: The Discovery Centre is a world-class ecotourism facility nestled in the heart of the world’s oldest tropical rainforest. As the #1 Attraction in the Daintree it provides a wonderful introduction to this iconic world heritage destination. The spectacular Canopy Tower and Aerial Walkway allow visitors to explore every level of the forest and Audio Guides in 6 languages are a hit with overseas visitors. But it is it’s innovative Carbon Offset Project that is attracting attention! Part of every entry fees goes towards ‘saving the planet’ via its bio-sequestration scheme.The Discovery Centre is sustainable ecotourism at its best!

“Great introduction and informative”
Reviewed April 27, 2012 via mobile

This is a great arrangement - lovely cafe and fantastic walks. Dispense with the audio guide - you gets as much with the booklet. We loved this place! Great introduction to the daintree. It's a little pricey at $28 per adult but we visited it first on our way to cape trib and the again on our way back. If you want to avoid the cost there's a great walk very close - just keep driving for a short way up the road. Recommended.
