RAINFOREST

Experience the world’s oldest rainforest from above and below

The World Heritage-listed rainforest is a natural playground with diverse experiences for adventure and relaxation. This pristine, living museum contains species which have survived unchanged for more than 40 million years and boasts some exciting ways to see them.

Swim and paddle in volcanic lakes and spectacular waterfalls surrounded by Wet Tropics Rainforest on the tropical Atherton Tablelands, a short drive west of Cairns. Head north to Daintree and Cape Tribulation and see where the two World Heritage-listed areas of the Wet Tropics Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef meet.

Adventurous ways to experience the rainforest include zip-lining through the canopy, white-water rafting and mountain biking on a downhill trail. For a more leisurely pace, picnic beside a swimming hole, glide in a gondola above the rainforest canopy to an interpretive centre or wander through a garden of fan palms. Bushwalking trails range from leisurely boardwalks along the ocean edge to long distance hikes through mist-covered mountains.
