Overview

The Discovery Centre is a world-class ecotourism facility nestled in the heart of the world’s oldest tropical rainforest. As the #1 Attraction in the Daintree it provides a wonderful introduction to this iconic world heritage destination. The spectacular Canopy Tower and Aerial Walkway allow visitors to explore every level of the forest and Audio Guides in 6 languages are a hit with overseas visitors. But it is it’s innovative Carbon Offset Project that is attracting attention! Part of every entry fees goes towards ‘saving the planet’ via its bio-sequestration scheme.The Discovery Centre is sustainable ecotourism at its best!

Very informative commentary provided on the way around the boardwalks good for those with no knowledge of rainforests. I thought it was expensive nearly $80.00 for 3 teenagers and one adult.More

Lots to see (though no cassowary's for us!) Great audio guide - make sure you listen to the indigenous component.No handrails on some of the lower walkways posed a problem for elderly parents. Nice coffee and very friendly service in cafe
