Force of nature

. In partnership with Tourism Australia

The world-renowned natural wonders of Tropical North Queensland are only a short flight away for most Queenslanders.

Starring World Heritage sites the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, this majestic region is made for adventure seekers, especially in the lush, green summer.

Waterfall chasing, trekking through dense rainforest, learning about the importance of the rainforest and reef with the Traditional Owners of the land, and relaxing on picture-perfect sand cays – all of these incredible experiences await you up towards the pointy tip of Australia’s east coast.

Here, you can tick off two bucket-list-worthy attractions. At 160 million years old, the Daintree Rainforest is the world’s oldest rainforest and is abundant in wildlife and cultural significance. At Mossman Gorge in the Daintree National Park, pristine waters flow over granite boulders and lush greenery cloaks impressive mountains, while an elevated boardwalk takes visitors through the lower rainforest canopy.

You can also take part in a Ngadiku Dreamtime Gorge Walk with an Indigenous guide and hear stories and see traditions of the Kuku Yalanji culture. The Wet Tropics region, which stretches across 450 kilometres, is a veritable wonderland of flora and fauna and home to countless species of vertebrates and butterflies, as well as 227 threatened plant species.
