A place where a tropical forest UNESCO world heritage meets the Great Barrier Reef is a place where visitors can relax into the timeless spaces of forest, ocean and reef. A day trip from Cairns or Port Douglas is to cheat the visitor out of the magic of the Daintree. A tropical story of ancient survivors, the saltwater crocodile, rare plants and enormous flightless birds, the cassaway you will find it hard to leave. Breath in the forest experience, indulge in quiet moments and indulge the soul with the qualities that make the area special. A landscape with striking diversity, the Daintree is a destination to discover mountain ranges, flowing streams, tall waterfalls, lagoons and gorges. The park is approximately 1200 square metres and the home to the Kuku Yalanji people. The Daintree is a living record for its traditional owners and a living timeline of evolution. The Daintree is millions of years older than the Amazon and a place that grabs the heart.
