The Daintree region is undeniably spectacular and is uniquely accessible to travellers. The Daintree Rainforest is the oldest surviving tropical rainforest on earth, and is a site of exceptional beauty and significance as the region that contains the most species of plants and animals in Australia.
Cruise down the Daintree River and take in the sights of jungle homes of birds, animals and reptiles including large crocodiles and pythons. The region is recognised for its superb wildlife, and eco-tourism operators provide itineraries offering fascinating insights into the creatures that inhabit this remote and beautiful river-system.
Daintree Village, perched on a bend of the Daintree River, is just further on from the turn off to the Daintree Ferry. An abundance of birdlife flourishes on the Daintree River and its banks. The area's most infamous inhabitants are the estuarine crocodiles.
The only cable ferry in tropical Australia, the Daintree Ferry provides the southern access into the lowland Daintree Rainforest. It's a vehicle ferry operating from 6am to midnight each day. Regional accommodation includes Bed and Breakfasts and home stays, while further north there are a few secluded resorts.
