2 DAYS IN DAINTREE RAINFOREST | ITINERARY

The UNESCO-listed Daintree Rainforest is believed to be one of the three oldest in the world!  With unique plants and animals found nowhere else, this rainforest is a must-see when you are in tropical far north Queensland. In today’s post, I will show you some of the best stops and activities that you should do when traveling to and when staying in the rainforest. From snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef to amazing viewing points and incredible desolated beaches.  I will also provide handy information about Daintree Rainforest.

HALF A DAY SNORKELING AT THE GREAT BARRIER REEF | OCEAN SAFARI

The Great Barrier Reef in Northern Queensland is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1981. Due to pollution and bleaching, the reef is in a bit of trouble. When I, therefore, had the chance of snorkeling at two different locations during a snorkel safari I jumped at the chance. If I had known that there would be a storm and that the weather was going to be choppy, I might have reconsidered…. But there was no way out. So, in this post, I will take you along my very interesting ocean safari to two different reef sites (Mackay and Undine Reefs) at the Great Barrier reef and I will show you what wonderful world lies underneath the rough ocean.

DAINTREE RAINFOREST RIVER CRUISE

Do not swim in rivers or the ocean is something you hear often when mentioning that you are traveling to Queensland. This is because they are home to salties aka Salt Water Crocodiles. These enormous and fascinating monsters can be found in most rivers and oceans in Queensland.  It speaks for itself that I avoided these like the plague! I did not want to encounter one in the flesh….But I did want to spot some from the safety of a tour and ended up doing the Daintree River Cruise with the Daintree River Cruise Centre in the hopes of spotting a croc and see the rainforest from a different angle.  To find out if this is worth the troubles, I’ve written this extensive guide to give you some guidance.
