Daintree Travel Guide: 59 reviews and 163 photos

During our north Queensland trip, we paid a very short visit in the time we had left to the little town of Daintree itself, then went on to the Daintree rainforest and just did a couple of boardwalk walks.

However, in 2-3 hours we really only just scratched the surface, and I think you need to go a lot further into the forest to see the really good scenery, like going as far as Cape Tribulation.

This little train boat takes tours up and down the Daintree river.

We saw one Cassowary running wild (well fairly tame but still in the wild) in the Daintree. They must be a fairly common occurance as there are a lot of warning signs on the road about them (especially as they're now endangered - can't afford to lose any more to road kill. And besides, they're so big they'd make a real mess of your car if you hit one, so follow the speed limits and keep a watch out for them)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great Rainforest, some great scenic views
  • Cons:Make sure you have enough time to see it or it's just a rush on winding roads
  • In a nutshell:Really worth a visit, spectacular
