The Centre also offers a number of interactive information kiosks with touch screen displays to allow easy access to a variety of information suitable for all ages.
Our coffee shop offers a variety of light refreshments and is popular with visitors of all ages. It is a quiet retreat where you can sit and observe the rainforest while enjoying a pot of our local Daintree tea or a choice of coffees, hot chocolate, a fruit juice and a choice of snacks. We make a great cappuccino!
Our Souvenir Shop offers a wide range of products including locally made jewellery, beautifully hand crafted pottery, eco-style clothing, rainforest reference books, children’s story books and rainforest souvenirs.
Self-Guided Audio Tours
Audio tours are included in the entry fee. They are easy to use and extremely popular. Information is available in 8 languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Cantonese and Mandarin. A Children’s audio tour and an Indigenous Cultural tour are also available.
Interpretive Guide Book
A 56 page Interpretive Guide Book is included with the adult entry fee. This informative text is full of useful information, and not only does it provide a comprehensive guided tour of DCC, it also includes entertaining information on birds, frogs, reptiles, weather, history, etc.
No other privately funded environmental agency in Queensland comes close to offering the same standard or range of facilities or services as DDC. The Centre has an exemplary track record of service and is recognised as representing a model of best practice in the eco-tourism industry of Far North Queensland.
