Rainforest Retreat Packages in and around Port Douglas

The most wonderful aspect of holidaying in Port Douglas is that it is the only place in the world where you get the power of two - two World Heritage sites sitting side by side in perfect harmony.

With the Coral Sea of the Great Barrier Reef lapping the shores of the Daintree Rainforest, paradise is indeed on your doorstep. This is literally where the reef meets the rainforest. 

The Daintree Rainforest is the oldest rainforest in the world and is unchanged from its inception over 100 million years ago.  A visit to the Daintree Rainforest is really like walking back in a time before time, when dinosaurs roamed the earth and man was not even a glint in the eye of creation.

Even to this day, new species of insects, animals, flora and fauna are still being discovered in its depths. Covering an area the size of Manhattan, this is the last bastion of many species and still much has been undiscovered by man.

You might even be lucky to see one of the last 1200 remaining Cassowaries as they cross the road or wade in a rainforest creek.  These large, prehistoric birds are an awe inspiring sight, with their multi-coloured face and punky head crest.

To immerse yourself in this environment is almost a spiritual experience.  Swim in crystal clear rainforest creeks, in water fresh from the rainforest clouds and walk beneath trees taller than the Statue of Liberty. 

Exploring this environment will bring out the inner Harrison Ford and Bear Grylls in you.

Find out how the Aboriginals survived on the flora and fauna of the rainforest for the last 40,000 years for food, medicine and hunting. Fly through the rainforest canopy on a jungle surfing tour, hunt for crocodiles, taste exotic fruit, kayak to uninhabited islands, horse ride on the beach and explore the rainforest wildlife at night.

Whether you wish to stay in a natural cabin, a top end resort or a luxury villa, all budgets and tastes can be catered for.  

Consult our tour specialists about your trip to the Daintree Rainforest.  Being local they can advise you on the best options for your requirements and develop a package totally for you and your loved ones.
