    Location

    The Daintree Rainforest, also known as the Daintree, is a region on the northeastern coast of Queensland, Australia, about 105 km by road north of the city of Cairns, North Queensland.

     

    At around 180 million years old, these ancient, self-sustaining tropical forests are nearly 10 million years older than the Amazon of South America, and have witnessed dinosaurs, ice ages, and early humans all come and go.
