Daintree Rainforest : an incredible encounter with nature, a gem up north the Queensland state

Situated at the north east of Queensland is a gem of rare rainforest a must-visit for the nature lovers! An incredible bio diversity of plants and rare animal species. In fact, I myself saw with my two eyes a Cassowary, a rare fowl species. Exceptionally different because you will be walking in the middle of the jungle.

From Cairns we hired a car and drove as far as Cape Tribulation which I would also write a post about it in this blog. But meanwhile, the Daintree Rainforest is a part of the Daintree National Park which is stunning and a must to stop.

Much of the Daintree Rainforest is part of the Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Site, being listed by UNESCO in 2015 in recognition of its universal natural values highlighted by the rainforest.

Ferry loading the cars crossing towards Daintree

Before arriving at the Daintree, we needed to cross the lake through this barge/ferry which had loaded our hired car.

When you get to the Daintree Rainforest reception, you will then have the option to hire an electronic audio guide which summarizes specific spots around the rainforest that you’ll possibly bump onto, especially the rare species.

Tropical lush experienced deep in the middle of this green, wet wild forest. It must be very good to do meditation and yoga here, that all you can hear are birds chirping and the breeze, sweet greenish natural breeze that is in serene surrounds.40643_1247122238485_5513350_n

The Daintree canopy is absolutely magical experience. A close engagement to nature. A majestic place of both relaxing and exciting because you’re in the middle of an encounter with wildlife, with several plant varieties to get to know with, some twisted vines and some treks to trail but at the same time pristine creeks you’d love to dip your feet to…magnificent!

40396_1247121238460_4646759_nThe spectacular Daintree Rainforest was such a beautiful experience that nature lovers would adore immensely! The flora and fauna is untouched and unspoilt, carefully-kept despite of booming industries from nearby cities around Queensland. A very informative excursion and we came out, educated with the stunningly beautiful encounter with the native wildlife.
