Did you know that Australia is host to the oldest rainforest on the planet? The Daintree Rainforest is a tropical wonderland north of Mossman, Queensland, on the coast, north of Cairns. It is estimated to be over one hundred and thirty-five million years old and is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest on the Australian mainland (around 1200 square kms).
The Daintree With more than 100 scenic spots to visit, the Wet Tropics of Queensland offer not only striking scenic vistas but also a variety of river and rainforest activities. Some of its outstanding — if not astounding — features include Queensland's highest peaks, Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker, and Australia's longest single-drop waterfall, the 305-metre (1000-foot) Wallaman Falls.
