The World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest lies adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef and is one of the most spectacular and diverse ecosystems on the planet.
At 10 times the age of the Amazon, the Daintree is the oldest continually surviving rainforest in the world and serves as a refuge for a vast number of plants and animals including 1/2 of Australia's birds, 1/3 of its mammals and frogs, 1/4 of its reptiles and over 12000 insects.
Many of these species are found no-where else on earth and retain ancient characteristics from the time of the dinosaurs - creating a real life Jurassic Park!
We believe that the best way to experience this ancient land is with the Daintree Rainforest Self-Drive Audio Guide. Written and narrated by a local naturalist guide, this package provides an easy-to-understand, entertaining and informative commentary for independent travelers at a fraction of the cost of a private tour.
The Daintree Rainforest Self-Drive Audio Guide is available at Info/Tour Desks throughout Port Douglas for $12.50, versus a guided tour which costs around $190 per person.
The Daintree Self Drive Audio Guide contains:
a 60 min commentary on the natural history, Indigenous culture and European settlement of the Daintree
a full colour map of the greater Daintree region with numbered waypoints allowing for easy navigation though the CD
the map also includes the locations of popular tourist attractions, boardwalks and natural features of interest
a glossy full-colour brochure introducing travelers to the weird and wonderful plants and animals that call the Daintree home
discount vouchers for various activities and dining options in the rainforest (which cover the cost of the cd many times over in savings)
