Daintree Rainforest Guided Group Tours


Qualified staff conduct pre-booked group tours (minimum 10 people) both through the Daintree Discovery Centre and the local environs. The Centre is renowned for its excellent boardwalk tours and expert tour guides.

To ensure the Daintree Discovery Centre experience is top quality, the maximum numbers per guide is 20 people.

The Centre has the capacity to cater for group of 100+ at any given time and still provide an unforgettable rainforest experience.

With the appropriate notice, experienced staff will design a unique program of events to suit your specific needs – and in particular, the needs of specialty groups visiting the Daintree Rainforest.

How much time does it take?
Group visits vary according to the needs, interests and time constraints of those involved. While the average commerccial tour group tends to spend approximatedly one hour at the Centre, the time varies enormously. For instance, those who want to focus on the Canopy Tower might spend as little as 30-40mins, while other special interest groups, international students or visiting research personnel often prefer to spend the whole day exploring various aspects of the rainforest.

The Centre has also been involved in a successful exchange program with US College students who use the Discovery Centre as their study base whilst in the Daintree area. Such groups often spend a week or more at a time – interacting with visitors to the region, gathering rainforest data and generally tapping into the wealth of expertise available from the staff and management of the Discovery Centre.

Catering for a diversity of interests
The Centre is an ideal venue for a wide range of visitors from various social and cultural backgrounds. It is extremely popular with overseas visitors – especially people from non – English speaking backgrounds.

Daintree Rainforest Self-guided Audio tours are available in 8 languages.
