Best Of The Daintree January 2021

Happy New Year everyone! We’ve swung into 2021 with the intention to be present and pay attention to all the beautiful details life has to offer – the critters and small, the sounds of nature, all the different shapes of leaves you’ll find in the Daintree rainforest.

Here are our favourites for January – thank you all for tagging #discoverthedaintree and #daintreediscoverycentre in your posts, we love discovering everyone’s adventures on social media:
