The Daintree Rainforest is the only place in the world where two World Heritage sites sit right next to each other – the oldest surviving rainforest in the world, the 110 million-year-old Daintree National Park and the Great Barrier Reef! Ancient forests, stunning coasts, crystal clear waters, and the Daintree River all merge to create an ecosystem that is unusually rich in flora and fauna. A birder’s delight, the forest is home to an impressive 430 species of birds. Walk under towering trees to discover the rich biodiversity of the region. Trek your way through verdant forests that lead you to pristine waterfalls or sign up for a nocturnal nature walk – a unique experience. The rainforest is an ideal base to explore the Great Barrier Reef and its abundant marine life. Get an insight into the indigenous Kuku Yalanji people and their synergy with the environment. A number of charming bed and breakfasts and eco-resorts make it easy to explore the region’s many attractions.
