A naturalist’s paradise, this World Heritage region is recognised for its superb wildlife, and eco-tourism operators provide itineraries offering fascinating insights into the creatures that inhabit this remote and beautiful river-system.
On the Daintree River, cruise boats glide between the jungle homes of birds, animals and reptiles including large crocodiles and pythons.
After the ferry crossing, the coastal road continues north over tidal rivers and creeks and through small settlements to the renowned wilderness areas of Cape Tribulation and Bloomfield Falls. Cape Tribulation is the most northern settlement of the region and surrounded by a national park where visitors can enjoy bushwalking, night spotting for wildlife and visit the Bloomfield Falls.
Between the Daintree and Bloomfield Rivers, the forest slopes of Cape Tribulation National Park plunge to the waters of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, where reefs grow almost to the seashore.
