If you’re considering visiting the Daintree Rainforest on your next holiday or extended vacation, there are a few options for you to consider, but they’re not all equal. Depending on your travel preferences, desired adventure levels, and interest in nature, there are a few considerations you should make before you book.

  • Is it an accredited eco-lodge?

The Daintree rainforest is a world-heritage listed area, there for visitors to experience and enjoy. Environmental considerations should always come first though, so find out whether the accommodation you’re considering is accredited with environmental sustainability credentials.

  • Accommodation Type

Do you like to be at arms-length from nature, or do you prefer to be in the thick of it (or something in between)? North of the Daintree River and across the Cape Tribulation area, there are different styles of accommodation. Daintree Wilderness Lodge strikes a great balance between high standard accommodation and being right in the midst of the Daintree Rainforest.  Guests feels like they are staying  deep in the tropical jungle surrounded by its wildlife yet have all the comforts of home.

Are you seeking a large accommodation development or a small private style place to stay?

  • Location

The Daintree Rainforest covers a large area north and south of the Daintree River.  To access the Cape Tribulation area of the forest visitors must cross the Daintree River by ferry.  North of the river is where many tour operators are based and where there is access to the Bloomfield Track to Cooktown, the Great Barrier Reef,  the Daintree Discovery Centre, Cape Tribulation and the numerous beaches that line the coast.  Do you prefer to be close to these activities and locations?

Research and plan well to ensure that you make the most of your time in this amazing UNESCO World Heritage Area.
