Daintree Rainforest Tours

Daintree Rainforest – Cooper Creek Wilderness occupies the centrepiece of the last fragment of the oldest surviving rainforest in the world.

Cooper Creek Wilderness – Daintree Rainforest Tours provide ethical access into the heart of the oldest rainforest in the world. Unspoiled by artificial structures and other impediments of mainstream visitor management, this triumph of natural wonder and awe-inspiring beauty conceals hidden riches and inspirational insights.  There is no better way to successfully engage with such elusive complexity and intricacy than through the expertise of long-term human inhabitants. This vitally important extra step, which around 99.5% of visitors to Daintree Rainforest fail to take, draws from the rainforest its human voice and the intellectual property of generations of attentive inhabitants. The profundity of the experience is so entrancing, interest is transformed into intrigue.

Cooper Creek Wilderness Daintree Rainforest Tours have designed high quality guided interpreted tours that showcase the unique biodiversity of exceptional rainforest beauty.  A choice of Day tours is available, either 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.

Camera Traps - April 2020 Collecting data from the Camera Traps - April 2020, was as informative as it was therapeutic.  Getting back into the jungle, after weeks of post-operative convalescence and collecting from twelve widely-dispersed camera traps, is not a trivial undertaking.  Truth be told, my wife Angie did the majority [...]
