RvTrips' review

20 Oct 2016

The Daintree National Park is a world heritage listed area north of Port Douglas in far north Queensland. This is a truly beautiful location with white sand on the beaches, blue water and lush rainforests.  This National Park comprises sections covering the amazing Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation.  

Mossman Gorge is only a short drive from Port Douglas and has a huge parking area catering for cars, tour buses and caravans. A shuttle buses operate every 15 minutes to take visitors to the walking tracks and swimming holes. Highly recommended as this is a beautiful area of the Daintree.

The Cape Tribulation Section of the Daintree can be reached by taking the Daintree Ferry across the Daintree River ($26 return for a car) and then travelling along the Captain Cook Highway.  There are many areas to stay within the rainforest, ranging from camping grounds to resorts. The Daintree National Park is home to the Cassowary - a large flightless bird with a bright blue head. You are asked to drive carefully and pay particular attention near 'recent crossing' signs. We were lucky enough to see a Cassowary on our trip to Cape Tribulation where they say 'the rainforest meets the sea".
