Considered to be the oldest rainforest of the world, the Daintree Rainforest is Australia’s pride and joy. Located a little outside of Cairns, the Daintree Rainforest is in the top favourite tourist attractions. Listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Daintree is a protected rainforest and there are tours that take to a part of the rainforest. A word of caution, don’t stray from the designated visitor’s path and don’t be in a hurry to plunge into the water. Saltwater crocodiles are in plenty and so are a variety of other wild animals. Responsible for more than half of Australia’s fauna, the Daintree Rainforest will not disappoint you.
