Daintree Rainforest Tour Guide:
Magic abounds at the Daintree Rainforest, a tropical rainforest unlike any other. The oldest surviving tropical rainforest in the world, the Daintree Rainforest is as old as time and offers leisure tourists, nature lovers, backpackers and just about everyone, of all ages and sizes, with an incredible journey to the most complex ecosystems on earth.
Daintree is where two World Heritage Sites: the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef meet to form an ecosystem that sustains the most diverse species of flora and fauna on earth, some unique only to Australia. See the Southern Cassowary, the largest bird in Australia at 1.8m height and almost 70kg weight. If you are lucky, you can even sight the rare Bennett Tree kangaroos.
Aerial walkways through the forest connect you to the most fascinating look out points, refreshment centres and the Interpretive Display Centre, allowing you to have an intrinsic rainforest experience while protecting the fragile ferns and root system of the rainforest floor from being trampled under visitors’ feet. Being suspend on the mid-level, between the ground and the top of the rainforest canopies, the aerial walkways allow you to peek into the branches, observe the wildlife in the trees as well as down below and enjoy the stunning views over the McLean’s Creek.
The 23m Canopy Tower takes you higher up, right on level with the top of the canopy for a panoramic view of the Daintree Rainforest. With five levels, from the ground level to the very top, with informative displays and kiosks on each level, the Canopy Tower offers you a chance to experience the rainforest on all levels. You can also enjoy wilderness tours that take you right through the rainforest floor without structural interventions.
