Tropical North Queensland is a remarkable region, where Australia’s celebrated Daintree Rainforest meets the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. At an estimated 180 million years old, the Daintree is regarded as the world’s oldest living rainforest, with a fascinating ecosystem revealing ancient plants and hundreds of species of birds and wildlife. It’s also home to the First Nations Kuku Yalanji people, who maintain a deep connection with the land.
