One of the most spectacular coastal drives in the world - Mrs S Scrivener, Brisbane

WHERE IS THE DAINTREE RAINFOREST?

Located in the heart of the Daintree Rainforest, the Daintree Discovery Centre is an easy 2 hour drive north of Cairns along one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world.The scenery is unparalleled – sparkling azure blue waters contrast dramatically with the lush green of the tropical rainforest. Fringing reefs hug the coast providing an introduction to the wonders of the world famous Great Barrier Reef.

Crossing the Daintree River (home to Australia’s infamous Salt Water Crocodile) via a vehicular ferry is an experience not to be missed. Travel a further 10kms to the Discovery Centre at Cow Bay.

The road is sealed as far as Cape Tribulation (35 kms north of the Discovery Centre)

A huge range of hire cars are readily available in Cairns, Port Douglas and surrounding tourist venues; from large recreational campers to the most economical mini sedan.

Please note you do not need a 4WD vehicle to drive to the Daintree Discovery Centre – the road is sealed all the way and readily accessible by both 2 wheel drive vehicles as well as motor bikes and cycles.
