It is included in the World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics region with the Kuranda Rainforest and is home to many different plants and animals.

The Daintree region starts at Mossman Gorge near Mossman’s small sugar mill town. It then expands north through lush farmlands and extensive valleys to Daintree Village, the Daintree River and the ancient rainforests of the national park’s Cape Tribulation.

It spreads west to the mountain ranges and east to pristine beaches that meet the Coral Sea and Great Barrier Reef.

From tours and attractions to events, restaurants and unique historical sites, plan your trip in this vast region, offering plenty of fascinating experiences, activities and thrills.
