Daintree Tourism News

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Hi Emma,

I have some interesting news for you. We were very lucky to take out a news reader from the morning show Sunrise just recently. It was a rare treat to have a celebrity!

  • Solar Whispers Cruises and Daintree Discovery Tours on Sunrise

Nat the newsreader from Sunrise was on a tour with Daintree Discovery Tours and came out on the Solar Whisper boat and resident croc Scarface put on a show. Scarface achieved nationwide fame when he was shown tossing around a dead pig on the Sunrise program. The newsreader (Nat) was on the boat and her husband got some great shots which she showed on the Monday’s Sunrise. It was great publicity for both companies and the area, but a rare treat. Most of the time, crocs are more active in the night and the last time they saw him eating was about 1 ½ years ago.

Cheers,
Grant and Dianne Knight

Canopy Tower Celebrates 10 years

The Discovery Centre’s Canopy Tower, the only one of its kind in Australia, turned 10 years old in March 2008. At 23 metres (76 feet) high it provides the most amazing insight into the surrounding rainforest – from the forest floor to the upper most reaches of the canopy.

This fantastic structure has 112 steps and 5 large viewing platforms that can accommodate 70 people at any one time. The viewing platform at the top of the tower is 7 metres square. Work commenced on the building of the Tower in December 1997 and it opened in March 1998.The base is a mixture of approx 300 tonnes of concrete, steel, block and soil and the rest of the structure is made from hot dipped galvanised steel and spotted gum plantation timber. The Tower was built using local expertise and is designed to withstand cyclones.

In February 1999, neighbouring sections of the forest were battered by a category 2 cyclone named ‘Rona’ – the Canopy Tower survived unscathed! The Canopy Tower forms part of the Rainforest Tours available at the Centre. Tours can be independent, or can be undertaken using an audio guide, available in 6 languages.

To celebrate, the Discovery Centre has recently announced their sponsorship of James Cook Uni’s Carbon Flux Micrometerological Research Station.
