The 95 km (60 mile) Daintree region starts at Mossman Gorge, an hour's drive north of Cairns, continues past Daintree Village, across the Daintree River, through the rainforest of Daintree National Park to Cape Tribulation and along the Bloomfield Track towards Cooktown.
The Daintree Rainforest is believed to be one of the three oldest in the world with unique plants and animals found nowhere else, a Paradise for bird-watchers and nature-lovers. Explore the Daintree on your own or with an expert guide - ancient rainforests, stunning valleys, superb beaches, spectacular forest-clad mountains, clear streams, magnificent rivers and rolling farmlands.
Walk through the Daintree rainforest, spot crocodiles, birds and wildlife on a Daintree River tour, cruise to the Great Barrier Reef, ride a horse, take a scenic drive, explore the Bloomfield Track or relax on an uninhabited beach – and so much more! Destination Daintree has accommodation to suit everyone - from budget backpackers' to world-renowned eco-resorts. Fill your days with adventure or lay back and soak up the magic of Destination DAINTREE!
The Great Barrier Reef Drive from Cairns to Daintree Village and Cape Tribulation is along a spectacular coastline hugging two World Heritage areas, the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest.
The 4WD Bloomfield Road from Cape Tribulation to Cooktown (also known as the Bloomfield Track or Coast Road) is one of Australia's most scenic and challenging drives.
The Daintree Marketing Co-Operative acknowledges the custodianship of the Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef by the local Kuku Yalanji people whose rich cultures, heritage values, enduring connections and shared efforts protect our natural assets for future generations, and we pay our respect to elders past, present and emerging.
