The Basics

The Daintree National Park is an adventure playground for nature lovers. Book a guided tour to get the most out of the rain forest. Most tours set out from Cairns or Port Douglas and take in highlights such as the Mossman Gorge, Cape Tribulation, or Marrdja Boardwalk. Adventurers can also discover the region’s rich Aboriginal culture, zipline through the rain forest canopy, take a 4WD safari, spot crocodiles on a Daintree River cruise, go horseback riding, or hike through the ancient rain forest.

Full Day Daintree Rainforest and Mossman Gorge Tour
Our driver and tour guide, Steve, was the best! So knowledgeable & interesting to listen to. I learnt so much from him. He was so passionate about his job and making sure we had a great day. Just a small group of 8 ppl in the van & we all got along great for the day. Our morning tea and lunch were yummy, especially the barramundi for lunch. Would highly recommend.

Full Day Daintree Rainforest and Mossman Gorge Tour
The Tour guide was great and was great at spotting things we normally would would missed. Sometimes the tour felt a bit rushed but that was the nature of what we were trying to accomplish in one day. the food was great and we got to see 2 crocodiles on the river boat.

Full Day Daintree Rainforest and Mossman Gorge Tour
I enjoyed this great day touring the Daintree rainforest. Peter was an awesome guide pointing out some interesting insects and describing the forest plants and trees. All of our stops were enjoyable. He even did an unscheduled stop on the way back to my hotel to point out the fruit bat colony just on the edge of Port Douglas.

How to Get There

Daintree Rainforest National Park is located in North Queensland, about 62 miles (100 kilometers) northwest of Cairns and 35 miles (56 kilometers) north of Port Douglas. The best way to visit is by car or as part of an organized tour by 4WD or coach. The park is split into two main sections—south of the Daintree River, entered via the Mossman Gorge, and north of the river (crossed by cable ferry), where the main entry point is at the Daintree Rainforest Discovery Centre.

When to Get There

The most popular time to visit the Daintree Rainforest is during the dry season (April to October), when the weather is cool and less humid—it’s best to make an early start during this time. To bypass the crowds, visiting in wet season (November to March) is a possibility, although flash floods and landslides do occur, and box jellyfish can appear along the coast.
