The Daintree Rainforest is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest in Australia. It is one of the oldest rainforests in the world. The Daintree Rainforest contains 30% of the frog, reptile and marsupial species in Australia, and 90% of the bat and butterfly species. We saw lots of animals on this tour including several crocodiles.
We went to rainforests in the Atherton Tablelands at night (there’s just so much to do in Australia!). The tour started in the afternoon in Cairns, included dinner and went into the night so we could see nocturnal animals. We saw several Kuzu, which resemble possums but are not related. We had a lot of fun hiking, and the guide was very knowledgeable when it came to the flora and the fauna.
We went to Kuranda Rainforest by Skyrail in Australia. We took the full roundtrip on the Skyrail to go to and come back from the Kuranda Rainforest. The views were great–especially of the waterfall on the shiny coal-like rocks. We also enjoyed seeing the butterflies and the birds in Kuranda. A great place to spend the day! We saw so many different butterfly and bird species. We hope you enjoy this video from our Australia 4K series!
