Daintree is a rainforest located in the north of Queensland, Australia. It is one of the oldest rainforest on Earth and it's also one of the most diverse. With more than 1,200 species of plants, it's no wonder that Daintree Rainforest is a popular destination for travellers and explorers alike!

Cradled between the Pacific Ocean and rugged ranges, you can hike among ancient trees and cascading waterfalls all within a stone's throw from Cairns. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981, it is no wonder that global travellers flock here to experience North Queensland's tenacious beauty – by day or night.
