The Eastern Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people are the Traditional Owners of Daintree National Park. They welcome you to their country and ask that you respect their special place.
For me, the Daintree is special—from the magnificent king ferns and ancient Hope’s cycads to the many rainforest giants including figs, candlenut trees and cassowary plums, to name just a few. The wildlife you can see varies from southern cassowaries and buff-breasted paradise-kingfishers (in nesting season) to elusive Bennett’s tree kangaroos. But most of all, make sure you take time out in the peace and quiet, to sit at the viewing platforms and listen to the sound of water running by in the many small creeks.
