Excellent day trip from Cairns

The Daintree area is a great day trip from Cairns - but make sure you start early as there's lots to see on the way and lots of stopping required

The adventure starts once you cross the Daintree river with a ferry because you'll be all the time inside the Daintree Rainforest National Park. Amazing views (Alexandra Lookout), unexpected places (Cape Tribulation and beach), interesting walking trail (Marrdja Boardwalk). All these features make it an unforgetable journey.

My husband and I did a day trip to the Daintree and Cape Tribulation in a hire car from Port Douglas. Fiona at Paradise Wheels gave us a great map and explained and highlighted all the points of interest. There are so many points of interest along the way you could never see all of them in one day.

Well worth a visit though admission is quite pricy. Lots of informative signage. A high tower to climb to look over the canopy. Cassowaries in the area - if you are lucky.

If you've never been to a rain forest before and you happen to be in Australia, Daintree is an excellent example. While it rained every afternoon and most overnights we had reasonably good weather during the day. The rains made the waterfalls flow and the foliage green. To celebrate Australia Day, we drove up from Palm Cove up to Cape... More

We travelled as a group and did the crocodile boat tour which was a great experience. I would recommend this activity in you are visiting the Daintree region, being physically on the river was an amazing experience

Lots to see and do, you can spend a lot on the different attractions or a little by just doing the walks and taking a picnic lunch.
