Welcome to The Daintree
Part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, the spectacular region from the Daintree River north to Cape Tribulation features ancient rainforest, sandy beaches and rugged mountains. North of the Daintree River, electricity is supplied by generators or, increasingly, solar power. Shops and services are limited, and mobile-phone reception is patchy at best. The Daintree River Ferry, one of the few cable ferries of its kind in Australia, carries wanderers and their wheels across the river every 15 minutes or so.
