'The Daintree' is a loose term for the coastal lowland area between the Daintree and Bloomfield Rivers, also known as the Daintree Coast. There is also the Daintree National Park (stretching from Mossman Gorge to Bloomfield River) and Daintree Village, about 12 km upstream from the ferry crossing.

The Daintree Rainforest is situated an easy 2 hour drive north of Cairns along one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world.

Cairns to Port Douglas is 60km, around a 1 hour drive.  Mossman is 15km north of Port Douglas and Mossman River to Daintree Village is a picturesque 35 km, half-hour drive.

Daintree Village is perched on a bend of the Daintree River, and is just further on from the turn off to the Daintree Ferry.

This historic little township is a must see, located on the southern bank of the majestic Daintree River and the perfect setting for relaxing bit to eat and a cool refreshing drink.

Heading “over the river”, the distance from Cairns to Cape Tribulation Beach is 140km, approximately two-and-a-half hours' drive. Cape Tribulation Beach is located 36km north of the Daintree ferry crossing.

The Daintree River Ferry Crossing is open from 6am to midnight daily, and is the start of a spectacular 36km drive through the rainforest, ranges and coastal communities along Cape Tribulation Road.

The road to Cape Tribulation is now fully sealed.
