Focus Is On Fun And Forest Facts At Reopened Daintree Discovery Centre

Fun, funky and informative – all combine in new interactive interpretive signage at Daintree Discovery Centre designed to enhance the visitor experience in the Daintree Rainforest.

Daintree Discovery Centre manager Abi Ralph said the team had been busy over the Covid closure period designing and working with experts to better tell the story of the rainforest and its inhabitants and of Gondwana’s ancient legacy.

“We are thrilled with our cool new signage and are sure our visitors will appreciate it too. It provides a more immersive and engaging experience with succinct and easily understood facts and interesting information,” Ms Ralph said.

“Wonderful interactive signage has been installed along the Aerial Walkway, the Canopy Tower and the Jurassic Forest exhibit. They include colour-coded spinning totems that focus on local mammals and canopy birds. These are hands-on information stations designed to appeal to our younger visitors.

“Our dinosaur Jurassic Forest, has also been updated with 3D effects, sound, sliders and a spinning globe.

“We are delighted that the improvements have been completed and the Centre is back to operating as normal, ready to welcome visitors wishing to experience and understand the Daintree Rainforest and how it works.”

Brian Arnold, group general manager of Aboriginal Development Benefits Trust, which owns Daintree Discovery Centre, said continued investment helped to keep the product experience fresh and maintain the Centre’s position as a must-do activity for visitors crossing the Daintree River.

“Daintree Discovery Centre is recognised as a leader in ecotourism and environmental conservation and maintaining that role is a keen focus of our investment activity, particularly in these difficult times,” Mr Arnold said.
