  • If you are in the cairns area, do not miss this discovery of the rainforest, from crossing the daintree river on a very local ferry, you arrived in another world... The beaches where the forest and walks on the path traced in the mangrove, and you will have can be a chance to see as we a family of cassowaries crossing quietly in front of you! We had very few people, but during the tourist season I feared that the passage of the tray has a little long. If not regret as the side, forget the swimsuits and watched the sea.. .only watch... too bad

  • Lovely area. Got a bit stranded behind a fallen tree when heading home, but that was cleared quickly and we were on our way. Local accommodation let us relax in their restaurant while we waited.
  • Good service from the staff, very knowledgeable and friendly. Gave me directions and told me some interesting things to see in the area.
  • Wonderfull to drive throught especially when daintree river is crossed by car ferry. Place is really laid back and quiet. Roads are nice and slow so are most drivers. All very casual and wild. Great views. Remember there are crocodiles around. Anywhere near water can be dangerous.
  • One of the amazing places in Australia. So glad we visited.
  • Magical: you have to try the night shift walk@crocodylus. Seeing the Stars at night is just mind blowing.
