Wherever you explore throughout the Daintree you will find a range of places to satisfy your appetite. Restaurants in the heart of the rainforest, overlooking cool rivers and pools, beside the beach, in a village or in an Aussie hotel.
Be prepared to try Daintree's local delicacies – the famous barramundi fish and even crocodile. And if you love tropical fruit you will love the Daintree! Explore her valleys and you will find passionfruit, pawpaw (papaya), lychees, rambutans, mangoes and dozens of other exotic fruits growing on local farms … and appearing on dinner plates everywhere.
Some restaurants specialise in local 'bush-tucker' sourced by our wonderful indigenous Aboriginal community – delicious and very different flavours you will find nowhere else.
There are a number of smaller supermarkets, souvenir shops and services dotted throughout the Daintree, the main ones being at Cape Tribulation, Rainforest Village and Daintree Village.
However the closest major shopping centre is further south in Mossman where there is a large Woolworths, a full range of shops and a hospital.
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.
