Daintree Rainforest is home to the largest range of plants and animals on earth

Home to the largest range of plants and animals on earth and spanning 1200 square kilometres, Daintree Rainforest in the Tropical Far North Queensland is one of the most beautiful and jaw dropping examples of Mother Nature in the world.

Precariously balanced between the advancement of civilization and the warnings of environmentalists the Daintree Rainforest is listed as a World Heritage site. The rainforest is home to the highest number of rare and endangered plant and animal species anywhere in the world.

Basking between the tropical sun and pristine ocean waters, the beaches of the Daintree Rainforest are renowned as being the most spectacular in the world. Some have even mistaken them for heaven on earth. A wonderful and humbling feature of the beaches is the lack of people. Walk for kilometres along the golden sands on your own, or if you’re lucky, with that special someone.

A note: during the summer months (November to March) there is a safety advisory for all visitors to remain completely out of the water as the prevalence of marine stingers, or jellyfish, makes swimming in the ocean extremely dangerous, possibly even life threatening.
