Full description
Experience The Daintree Rainforest, one of the world’s natural wonders. Its complex tropical ecosystem is over 180 million years old, making it a registered UNESCO World Heritage site and a popular tourist destination.

Explore the rainforest by cruising along the Daintree River. Snake your way through the heart of the area. The densely populated mangrove estuary is home to an abundance of wildlife so you'll have the chance to see a dazzling array of tropical creatures, including the Estuarine Crocodile.

The largest of all living reptiles and an iconic Australian animal, saltwater crocodiles are hypercarnivorous apex predators. Throughout the day they appear deceptively docile but these opportunistic hunters will react with impressive agility when there’s prey around.

Uncover all aspects of this incredible environment. From these ancient reptilian predators, to flocks of birds, schools of fish, sneaky snakes and a variety of the mangrove species lining the riverbank. All aspects of this ecosystem play an important role and are equally interesting. Join this tour and ask as many questions as possible and let the guides show you the ultimate wildlife experience on the Daintree River.
