The Daintree Rainforest is home to some of the oldest rainforest on earth with more than 3,000 species of plants and 315 mammal species, 13 of which are indigenous only to the Daintree area. This World Heritage listed rainforest is adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef, located 19km due east. The Daintree is the only destination in the world where two World Heritage areas meet.
