Save yourself the trouble and only pack what you need when you move city. See the world's oldest rainforest in Tropical North Queensland

Featuring stunning contrasts of lush plant life, towering trees and a vibrant tropical atmosphere, the Daintree Rainforest is a World Heritage-listed area nestled away in Tropical North Queensland.

Come and immerse yourself in the natural wonders of the rainforest - take a hiking track to a scenic lookout, splash around in picturesque swimming areas and tumbling waterfalls and keep an eye out for a variety of birds, reptiles and other wildlife.

The Daintree Rainforest and National Park is definitely a must-visit for those wanting a summer holiday with a difference, with a diverse ecosystem that will make visiting this natural haven a truly special treat.


"As one of the most diverse tropical environments in the world, the Daintree Rainforest hosts an astonishing number of rare animal and plant species, many of them threatened with extinction elsewhere in the world.


Dare to explore Daintree

Did you know that this rainforest hosts a third of Australia's mammals?

It's also home to a quarter of the country's frog species and almost half of the bird species, so there's no knowing what you might be lucky enough to spot as you weave your way between the mossy gorges and crystal-clear waterfalls.

As one of the most diverse tropical environments in the world, the Daintree Rainforest hosts an astonishing number of rare animal and plant species, many of them threatened with extinction elsewhere in the world.

Even if animal-watching isn't your thing, there's plenty to marvel at in this ecotourist's dream. Grab your hiking boots and take a walk up to the scenic Mossman Gorge, where you can get a first hand view of the water cascading over the boulders in the gorge.

If you're up to it, make your way across the Rex Creek suspension bridge and follow the 2.4km circuit track throughout the rainforest, which will take you past many of its most beautiful attractions. There are also a variety of other self-guided trails and walks so you can take your pick of the routes you want to explore.

Once you've had your fill of all the hidden natural gems in the rainforest, come back and relax with a spacious room at Mantra Aqueous on Port, one of a variety of holiday accommodation options available in nearby Port Douglas.
