Australia’s most scenic coastal road of Daintree National Park takes you along unspoiled white sandy beaches lined with rainforest. Go on a guided rainforest walk, where see prolific birdlife and rare species of Australian wildlife, including cassowaries and crocodiles. It is precisely due to its biodiversity that Daintree National Park is heritage listed. At these wet tropics, also discover a historical landmark: a spot where Captain Cook, the discoverer of Australia, beached his ship.

  • Kids had a wonderful time - we saw a few Cassowaries & chick. Beautiful spot with lots of great walks. 
  • Amazing place to visit. Wildlife is absolutely awesome in the hot wet season if you can stand the heat and rain. Otherwise it's still good at other times of the year. And more pleasant temperatures.
  • Beautiful national park and easy to access by car. If you don't have a car consider one of the many tours or renting a car in cairns.
  • One of the best national parks in Australia. Beautiful rainforests, amazing beaches (be careful of the crocs). I've travelled the entire east coast and this is the best it has to offer nature-wise. Make sure to go on a river cruise on the Daintree river to spot the crocs.
  • Very nice national park, can spot crocadiles along the river, some great views and a great day out. Would highly reccomend
  • The beaches were beautiful, but empty. No surprise with all the crocodile warning signs they had. The rainforest was not what I expected; it was filled with big trees and really guided.
