The Daintree National Park has been a World Heritage listed site since 1988. Over 110 million years old, it is one of the oldest rainforests in the world. Just north of Port Douglas, the Daintree National Park consists of the Daintree village, the Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation.
If you are looking to really explore the region, from the heart of the rainforest to the outback, a 4WD tour is a fun way to do it. Travelling in small groups, 4WD tour operators will take you to popular spots such as the Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation as part of your day.
Depending on the type of 4WD tour you book, will depend on how far off the beaten track you travel. 4WD vehicles allow access to areas such as restricted access trails, which larger vehicles cannot travel on. A lot of tours include a 4WD portion of the tour, the Bloomfield track. Here you will come across a 250 year old giant strangler fig tree, kangaroos, cassowaries, reptiles and native birds, just some of the amazing flora and fauna you will encounter on your 4WD adventure.
