Whilst there’s truth in childhood happiness aligning with the latest electronic device, when planning the ultimate family holiday, the Daintree Rainforest provides a thrill of a completely different kind. From lush tropical rainforest to pristine beaches, exotic bird species and nearby fringing reefs, let us share why family accommodation in the Daintree Rainforest should be a front-runner when choosing your next family holiday destination.

Spend Your Next Family Holiday In The Daintree


A 90-minute drive north of Cairns, you’ll find family-friendly Daintree accommodation nestled amongst the rainforest canopy of the Daintree Ecolodge. The private eco-friendly bayans (treehouses) are the perfect base for on-site family fun exploring the private waterfall, indoor pool, diverse flora and fauna and discovering nearby landmarks such as Mossman Gorge, Cape Tribulation, the Daintree River, Atherton Tablelands and the Great Barrier Reef. With à la carte breakfast inclusions, a restaurant catering to every dietary need, and childminding services on standby, the Daintree Ecolodge totally earns a top spot on the best Daintree Rainforest family accommodation list.

Things To Do

Give a kid a pool and they’ll be occupied for hours, but the Daintree Ecolodge has plenty more family-friendly experiences on offer. Whether it’s Jungle Surfing on a zip-line through the rainforest canopy, boomerang throwing on a guided indigenous nature walk, snorkelling with colourful Nemo lookalikes on the Great Barrier Reef or crocodile spotting on the Daintree River, there’s an abundance of activities to keep boredom far from sight. For those seeking more adventure, take advantage of the year-long sunshine and TV-free bayans to create lifelong memories with a guided 4WD adventure through Cape Tribulation, horse-riding on the water’s edge of Myall’s Beach or gelato sampling at Daintree Ice Cream Company. With an itinerary featuring this much potential for fun, you’ll be the coolest parents around.
