It's here in the Daintree where a velvety green mantle of the forest slopes plunge to the aqua waters of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, where fringing reefs grow almost to the shore.

No where else in the world can you experience these two natural wonders side by side - where World Heritage - listed reef & the Daintree Rainforest meet.

t's a little known fact that the Daintree Australia Rainforest, an ancient World Heritage - listed wonderland in our own backyard, is older than the Amazon.

The Daintree Village, just an hour-and-a-half drive from Cairns or 45 minutes from Port Douglas, is the perfect base from which to explore the region.

A great spot for lunch is Daintree's Big Barramundi Garden, which serves local barra, crocodile and emu lunches until late afternoon daily, just a stone's throw from the Daintree River.

From the Daintree Village, the wonder of Daintree Australia and Cape Tribulation is on your doorstep. There are flora species that have survived almost unchanged for 110 million years. Indeed, these rainforests actually contain several of the first flowering plants (called angiosperms), which were the origins of all plant life.

You can make your own way into the Daintree via the Daintree Ferry. It's the only cable ferry in tropical Australia, and drops you on the southern part of the lowland Daintree Rainforest. The ferry operates from 6:00am to midnight every day.

There are plenty of Daintree Rainforest day trips and activities to choose from including Aboriginal guided rainforest walks with the local Kuku Yalanji people, river wildlife cruises, guided bird spotting, Cape Tribulation safaris, river fishing, horse riding and bike riding, exploring secluded beaches and 4WD safaris.

Cooper Creek Wilderness offers guided day and night interpretive rainforest tours. Or you can tackle the tracks on your own on the Marrdja Boardwalk, a 1.1km loop which takes 30 minutes.

You don't need a champagne budget to explore the beauty of the Daintree. It's one of the best driving adventures around and it's right on our doorstep.

Daintree Australia offers a range of accommodation suitable for any budget or accommodation need. There are 5 Star Resorts offering the best amenities & facilities. Exclusive holiday homes for total privacy, rejuvenation and relaxation are also available. Bed & Breakfast accommodation is a great way to enjoy the hospitality of the locals and learn more about the Daintree Rainforest. Backpacker accommodation is also available.
