The only place in the world where two World Heritage-listed sites exist side by side – Daintree National Park and The Great Barrier Reef.
Ancient tropical rainforests of Daintree National Park, the magnificent Daintree River, awesome coastal ranges overlook the calm clear waters of The Great Barrier Reef, the world's most extensive coral reef system.
The 95 km (60 mile) Daintree region starts at Mossman Gorge, an hour's drive north of Cairns, continues past Daintree Village, across the Daintree River, through the rainforest of Daintree National Park to Cape Tribulation and along the Bloomfield Track towards Cooktown.
