Summer in the Daintree

Summer is in full swing up here in the Daintree – bask in the sun, dip in cool rainforest streams, relax under palm trees and enjoy the sounds of the rainforest all around you.

This month we’re featuring a selection of all the birds and critters you can discover in the Daintree Rainforest – let us know which ones you have spotted yourself already.

We love discovering everyone’s adventures on social media – thanks to all the photographers for tagging #discoverthedaintree and #daintreediscoverycentre in their Instagram pics:
