Things To Do

Explore The Daintree

There is an abundance of things to do in the region, both in and around the Daintree. We have listed the top experiences to ensure our guests get the most out of their visit. There is sure to be an adventure for everyone.

Whilst there are many things to see and do in the Daintree Village, a lot of the experiences are a short drive from the Ecolodge. It is recommended to have your own car; however, our staff can arrange tours which pick up and drop off to the property if that is your preferred way to travel and explore.

  • Great Barrier Reef

    Visiting the Great Barrier Reef is a must when visiting our region. Half and full day snorkeling trips depart from Cape Tribulation beach, located an hour and 15 minutes’ drive north of the lodge. Half and full day snorkeling and diving trips also depart from Port Douglas marina, 45 minutes’ drive south from the lodge. Prices start at $145 for half day trips and from $220 for full day trips.
  • Mossman Gorge

    Located in the southern part of the World Heritage listed Daintree National Park, Mossman Gorge is one of the few places in the country where visitors can gain an insight into the lives, culture and beliefs of Australia’s Indigenous population and their connection to the natural environment. Take in the beauty of pristine rainforest, cool streams, towering mountains and the dramatic Gorge and receive the warm welcome of the local Kuku Yalanji people. Guided walks are available several times day and cost $68.
  • Port Douglas

    Located 45 minutes south of the lodge is Port Douglas, a small seaside town with plenty on offer for holiday makers. Soak up the sunshine on Four Mile Beach, stroll along the main street’s shops and galleries. Taste the tropics at one of the many fine restaurants. Visit the seaside Sunday markets or visit a rainforest wild life centre.
  • Cape Tribulation

    We recommend all our guests travel north of the Daintree River and up to Cape Tribulation. It is an area of stunning natural beauty and the only place on earth where two World Heritage areas meet, the rainforest and the reef. Meander along rainforest boardwalks and stroll along deserted tropical beaches. Cape Tribulation hosts some of the best adventure tours in the area. Zipline through the rainforest canopy, ride a horse along the beach, try out an electric mountain bike on forest trails and through creeks or go on a tropical fruit tasting. Tours start at $75.
  • Daintree River Cruise

    Cruise the majestic Daintree River. A variety of operators offer one hour cruises throughout the day or choose a two hour sunrise or sunset cruise, learning about the environment and wildlife. Spot birds and crocodiles and enjoy the serene panorama of the mighty Daintree River. One hour cruises start from $25, two hour cruises from $60.
