When you start planning your holiday to the Daintree, it can be difficult to decide what you want to do as there’s so much to choose from.
It’s no secret that getting to see the Daintree’s biggest resident – the saltwater crocodile – is a huge drawcard, but instead of venturing out to find a croc in the wild, luckily there are some great river cruises that take you up close and personal with a saltie.
If you’ve decided to base yourself in Cape Tribulation where the rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef, you’re perfectly situated to mix up your itinerary. You can head out on the reef, immerse yourself in traditional Kuku Yalanji cultural experiences, hike up Mt Sorrow, and so many other incredible experiences.
For those who are planning to stay around the quaint Daintree Village, there are some dreamy walks where you’ll get lost in the prettiest parts of the rainforest, lots of swimming holes (but be croc aware!), and more that will fill your days up with unforgettable memories.
There are also plenty of tours in and around the Daintree that will take the hard work out of deciding what to do.
