Daintree Rainforest National Park - Review
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.

Daintree Rainforest National Park, Cairns Reviews
Description in Google map us simply wrong. There is no canopy in this place. Can someone from Google contact this place and sort out the incorrect information in description they published? This place is really excellent for learning about flora and fauna of rain forest. But this is not same place as Daintree Rainforest visitor centre with canopy. Small group walks are really informative. I requested for location to be brought just after the Cooper creek so that the map can point in the right direction. You need to drive in the narrow dirt road to reach this place. Well worth the money and time we spent.
Very busy with limited parking. Busy with caravans coming into the caravan park blocking the only road when we were there. Great food at the Big Barra. There is also a Tourist souvenir store, cafe and a pub here.
Daintree Rainforest is the oldest rainforest in the world. It is 180 million years old, and quite honestly the most beautiful forest that I have ever seen. The winding switch back road that takes you through is exhilarating.
A magical place worth visiting. You can see Cassowary and crocs but be careful. Photos from Port Douglas
Beautiful place and lush rainforest but the local river boat cruises for 45 mins in salt water or fresh water are nothing but boring and not value for money $20pp. You do not get to see anything except a small crocodile or bird unless you are lucky! So just enjoy the walking trails and drive instead.
