10. Cruise through the Daintree River
The majestic Daintree River snakes its way through this tropical paradise and the best way to drink in the scenery is on a Daintree River Cruise.
You’ll discover that there are a variety of cruise operators. You can choose from a one hour cruise during the day, or for something even more remarkable, choose a 2 hour sunrise or sunset river cruise through the Daintree Rainforest.
By water, you’ll get to see all the local wildlife from a totally different perspective that’s unencumbered by the obstacles of travelling on land. The Daintree is a magical place and whether you go for a day cruise or a sunrise or sunset cruise, you’ll be in awe of this picturesque environment.
While you’re on your river cruise, tour guides will offer up information on the local area, as well as helping guests to spot the wildlife on the river’s shores.
If you decide to stay at the Daintree Ecolodge, the jetty is only 10 minutes away. However, a Daintree River Cruise is the perfect day trip from Cairns as well.
