Cooper Creek Wilderness – Daintree Rainforest Tours
Cooper Creek Wilderness occupies the centrepiece of the last fragment of the oldest surviving rainforest in the world.
Cooper Creek Wilderness Daintree Rainforest Tours have designed high quality guided interpreted tours that showcase the unique biodiversity of exceptional rainforest beauty. You can choose from day tours and night tours, two or four hours in duration. A one-hour cruise in the estuarine portion of Cooper Creek, or a two-hour birdwatching cruise on the majestic Daintree River, can be added to a rainforest walking experience to make a Combination Tour. You can also make a package to include meals in a local rainforest restaurant and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a swim in a refreshing rainforest stream (weather permitting).
You can experience Cooper Creek Wilderness Daintree Rainforest with a local expert and you will understand why this private rainforest was included in the World Heritage Area. You will also know that your payments for a tour contribute to conservation and protection of a global treasure. Maintaining the natural integrity of the World Heritage landscape means that access is not universally available and may be unsuitable for some with mobility issues. Wildlife sightings are unpredictable. Participants must accept the risks of a genuine wilderness experience.
