The Daintree Discovery Centre is a world-class interpretive facility that allows visitors easy access to this unique rainforest wilderness via boardwalk tours, a 23 metre high Canopy Tower, Aerial Walkway and a comprehensive Display Centre.

It offers visitors an opportunity to learn about and explore one of the few remaining unspoiled pockets of lowland rainforest in Far North Queensland, while at the same time protecting the fragile environment.

The Daintree Discovery Centre is an accredited Wet Tropics Visitor Centre. It is highly regarded as a quality eco-tourism experience, providing an excellent introduction to the wonders of the Daintree Rainforest.

With a large indoor display area, the latest touch screen technology, audiovisual theatre and sweeping, all-weather verandas, the Centre has something to offer everyone.

Visitors can meander along elevated rainforest boardwalks including the Cassowary Circuit and the Bush Tucker Trail. They can take a self-guided tour using an audio guide, or a pre-booked group tour with an experienced naturalist.

The spectacular Aerial Walkway and the 23m (76ft) Canopy Tower are a 'must see'. The Tower is quite unique as it has 5 viewing platforms that look out over the rainforest canopy and beyond, allowing visitors of all ages to access the various levels of the rainforest - from the forest floor to the upper most reaches of the canopy.

Getting There:

The Daintree Discovery Centre is an easy 2 hour drive north of Cairns, located just 10 kms north of the Daintree River ferry. You do not need a 4WD vehicle to drive to the Daintree Discovery Centre - the road is sealed all the way and readily accessible by all vehicle types.
