The walk in the rainforest at Cooper Creek is a real treat - such a beautiful place. Our guide, Neil, was very knowledgeable and it was a delight to see such a range of plants and animals/insects. Definitely worth wearing closed shoes for and not ideal for under 10s, since the content of the guided tour is quite complex.

Visited the national park as far as to Cape Tribulation. Great drive along the picturesque winding road after across the ferry and had a walk on the board walk and to the beach. It was a very memorable experience. Would be better if I could afford spending more time at Cape Tribulation.

Unless you participated on either a 2-hour Grand Fan Palm Gallery Tour or a 4-hour Greater Wilderness Experience, then you did not experience the product that you have directed your review towards. There is no doubt that the region you travelled through suffers from an identity crisis. In 1995, the Queensland Government re-gazetted Mossman Gorge National Park, Dagmar Range National... More

Daintree Rainforest can, in fact, only be experienced on a guided, interpreted walking tour. The website link in the TripAdvisor Daintree Rainforest property contact details provides all the necessary information for securing access. One of the great difficulties for travellers, is the confusing identities of competing destinations, all using the 'Daintree' brand to influence the market. If you are looking... More

We did the combined river cruise and the four hour walk in the rainforest. The cruise was really good. Very relaxing and thanks to the persistent efforts of our boat captain, we were able to see a crocodile secreted within the mangroves. Then on to the rainforest walk. Four of us were taken through the rainforest by our guide Neil.... More

This is a must see, but somewhat underwhelming in certain senses. No real wildlife, (that we saw). Very few birds. But! It is an ancient forest and major contributor to the world's Eco system. Would not have missed it. Great views coming and going.

Your review states that you 'Would not have missed it', but regrettably, you did. So do the vast majority of travellers that cross the Daintree River Ferry and the multitudes that don't even make it that far. Admittedly, an accurate strike is made manifestly more difficult by intergovernmental intent, but Daintree Rainforest is a very specifically located 20-KM north of... More

If you have a car, you can self drive easily. There is no need to book for expensive tours. It is quite controlled insomuch as you are limited to a number of boardwalks if you wish to gain entrance to the rainforest. That said, you can see a lot of things in there if you choose your time wisely and... More

DaintreeRainforest, Owner at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, responded to this review

Relatively recent advances in palaeobotony have extended the age of Daintree Rainforest to around 180-million-years, but the really primitive portions are not found on public boardwalks (which are incidentally not even part of Daintree Rainforest, but rather Daintree National Park, Cape Tribulation). Since there are no public transportation services operating within this area, self-driving is almost pre-requisite. Dismissing a Daintree... More

Did the interpretive walk through the rainforest where we learned about bush food, medicinal plants and the relationship of the Aboriginals with their environment, amazing.

Just to be sure, an interpretive walking tour through Daintree Rainforest definitely includes "bush food, medicinal plants and the relationship of the Aboriginals", but of the half-million-or-so travellers that cross the Daintree River by ferry in pursuit of 'Daintree Rainforest', only a-half-percent, successfully make it. 99.5% are led by market forces and government policy along a sequence of public boardwalks,...

The guide at the Cooper Creek Wilderness was the best at describing the uniqueness and the wonder of the rainforest's plants & animals. How, for example, some trees actually promote certain animals at different times for the benefit of both the animal and the tree---fascinating! The guide was so thorough in helping us to recognize the value to this earth... More

It is true, Daintree Rainforest is older than the Amazon Rainforest. In fact, it is ancestral to the vast majority of plants and animals found throughout Australia, South America, Africa, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, India, New Caledonia, New Zealand and Antartica. However, it is also incredibly diminutive, in its last vestige of representation. Only three valleys remain, off the eastern flank... More

Me and my family did the boat walk combination. Even though we saw no crocs on the boat because it was to hot it was still nice to see the mangroves.
