Daintree Rainforest

The Daintree Rainforest


The Daintree Rainforest is a region located on the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia, north of Mossman and Cairns. At around 1,200 sqkm | 463 sqmi, the Daintree is a part of the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest on the Australian continent.

The World Heritage-listed forest is so beautiful that its ancient ferns, emerald green vines, and lush canopy provided inspiration for the movie Avatar. Here, you can trek through the jungle and discover plants and animals found nowhere else on the planet.

Fly through the trees on a zip line for a bird’s-eye view. Cruise on the winding waterways of the Daintree River to where the rainforest meets the reef, all while looking for saltwater crocodiles. When Sir David Attenborough calls something “the most extraordinary place on earth”, you know it must be good.
