Port Douglas Daintree Rainforest

Daintree Bird Watching

Are you a twitcher, an ornithologist, a birdwatcher or just a wildlife photographer? If you are any of these then you are sure to have a visit to the Daintree and Cape Tribulation close to the top of your list as this region is home to over 430 species of birds. This means that this region has more than half the species found across the whole of Australia right here in these World Heritage listed rainforests for you to seek out and enjoy.

Daintree Rainforest

If you are staying in Port Douglas it is always well worth your time to take a drive up the Daintree Village to fossick around in the village stores for some handmade crafts and souvenirs or relax in one of the cafes for some lunch. You can also take a cruise along the Daintree River and take some wildlife photography where you may just spot some crocodiles and other wildlife.

Daintree Walking Tracks

If you love hiking and exploring new landscapes by yourself then a trip up to the Daintree and Cape Tribulation area will be a place you will really enjoy for its beautiful scenery and its abundant wildlife. The walking trails are well marked and there are hiking maps that you can get from the tourist information centres and Queensland Parks and Wildlife. The hiking trails in these National Parks range from short 1200 metre walks to six hour hikes over mountains and rivers and ending on the beaches of Cape Tribulation.
