Introducing The Daintree

The Daintree represents many things: a river, a rainforest national park, a reef, a village, and the home of its traditional custodians, the Kuku Yalanji people. It encompasses the coastal lowland area between the Daintree and Bloomfield Rivers, where the rainforest meets the coast. It’s an ancient but fragile ecosystem, once threatened by logging and development but now largely protected as a World Heritage Area.
