Daintree News

This newsletter has been created to help keep you up to date with the latest wildlife sightings, events and activities in the Daintree. We hope that it will help tourists, booking agents and locals get the most out visiting this special place. 

Bennett's tree kangaroos are elusive creatures which are endemic (only found) in and around the Daintree. Seeing them in the wild is exceptionally rare so everyone gets very excited when this happens.
 
Over the Christmas period our guides and guests were treated to repeat sightings of a single adult at the Marrdja boardwalk. For a video of this please see our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DaintreeWonderTours/videos/1042326075912894/
Playing with river 'ochre' is one of simplest but most pleasurable activities ones can do in tropical rainforest streams.

With cassowary sightings in the Daintree National Park becoming more frequent it is important for visitors to know how to act if they encounter a bird. Below is a poster* we made to help people be CASS-O-WARY.

*If you would like a high quality version of this poster for your office or distribution please just let us know and we will email through a copy.

The 'Green' Season

'But what if it rains?' This is a common question asked by people considering visiting the Daintree. Our answer - bring it on!

To see the rainforest in the wet or 'green season' is to experience it at its best; singing frogs, hunting reptiles, breeding birds and rushing rivers. Waterfalls actually cascade onto the road (see above) creating a beautiful and enchanting spectacle. To top it off our tropical rain is warm and invigorating making the entire experience truly unforgettable.
Little Coco (short for Coconut) is an agile wallaby joey that came into care in October 2016. After spending a few months with us he is now at a 'soft release' facility with his full return to the wild scheduled for April/May.
