Daintree National Park

Daintree National Park protects the world’s oldest living rainforests, which makes the diversity of plants and animals truly dazzling. There are several endemic animals, such as the Bennett’s tree kangaroo, which spends most of its time in the rainforest canopy and is only found in the rainforests north of the Daintree River. The river’s estuary is home to around 200 fish species as well as the deadly saltwater crocodile. Cassowaries and butterflies may be seen in the forests, including the brilliant blue Ulysses butterfly and the Cairns birdwing, Australia’s largest butterfly with a wingspan of 150 millimetres. Stroll along the Marrdja Boardwalk to see rainforest birds.
