Daintree Rainforest Canopy Tower

23m High Daintree Rainforest Canopy Tower

Opened in 1998, the spectacular 23 metre Canopy Tower has been an outstanding success and allows unprecedented access to the Daintree Rainforest in a unique and intimate way.

The Tower comprises five different viewing platforms allowing visitors of all ages to access the various levels of the rainforest – from the forest floor to the upper most reaches of the canopy.

The Canopy Tower:

  • has information on each of its five levels
  • has a micro-weather station on the top level which is part of the OzFlux Rainforest Research Program
  • was built to withstand cyclones
