Tropical North Queensland

Natural Encounters


In the only place in the world where two World Heritage areas meet, you will find ancient rainforest towering hundreds of metres above sea level and thousands of kilometres of coral cays and islands straddling the white, sandy coastline of the Great Barrier Reef.

As the oldest living rainforest in the world, the Daintree Rainforest is home to more than 3,000 mammal species and the richest pockets of bio-diversity in Australia.

Set up camp under the most stunning waterfalls in the world or explore Cape Tribulation by kayak at sunrise and find yourself surrounded by turtles and dugongs grazing the seagrass beds.

The Great Barrier Reef offers some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world and a chance to come face to face with whales, manta rays, and six of the world’s seven sea turtle species.
