Welcome to the Daintree
The World Heritage Daintree region of Tropical North Queensland is a tropical wonderland that includes 95kms of magnificent coastal rainforest and pristine tropical beaches stretching from the sugar town of Mossman in the south to the Bloomfield River in the north, and all within an hour or two of Cairns and Port Douglas.
Destination Daintree includes locations along the Daintree Coast such as Daintree Village, the Daintree River, Cow Bay and Thornton Beach, Snapper Island, Cape Tribulation, the Bloomfield Track and the Bloomfield River.
The area has a wide range of accommodation - budget, backpacker, camping, eco retreat, resort, bed and breakfast, farmstay, holiday houses, self-contained units, yoga retreat and motels. Destination Daintree has rooms to suit just about anyone, with properties located in beautiful settings.
Destination Daintree includes superb beaches, spectacular forest-clad mountains, clear streams and magnificent rivers, tropical farms of sugar cane, bananas, fruit and cattle, and ancient rainforest side by side with the Great Barrier Reef. The Daintree Rainforest, believed to be the oldest in the world, features unique plants and animals found nowhere else.
There are great day tours to the area, featuring stops at key locations. For those with more time, Destination Daintree lends itself to longer stays. It is a great place to relax and unwind, or experience the rainforest or reef with local guides.
Destination Daintree is an ecotourism paradise with many businesses eco-accredited.
The Daintree is a place where the community has a wonderful tradition of protecting and presenting its natural wonders, and we invite you to experience it as our guest.
