Daintree Rainforest

Named after Richard Daintree, the Daintree Rainforest is the area situated between the Mossman Gorge and the Bloomfield River. Many people believe that the name was a result of conservationists who proposed the name “Greater Daintree National Park” when they were building the coastal road.

The Daintree Rainforest is home to the preservation of earth’s evolutionary history, including ancient species of ferns and plant families. The Daintree Important Bird Area is also located here, which is where a large population of Southern Cassowaries live here.

Daintree forestCape Tribulation

Named by the British Navigator James Cook, Cape Tribulation was where Cook’s ship, the Endeavour, almost sank after hitting a reef. Captain Cook stated “here began all our troubles” after his ship bumped into the reef which is now named Endeavour Reef.

The cape became a rainforest holiday area in the 1980s. Hostels in Cape Tribulation started being built in the mid-1980s to accommodate backpackers while resorts made to accommodate up-market tourists were made in the 1990s. Visitors can now enjoy the unique rainforest ambience of the many 1 or 2 bedroom holiday apartments in Cairn.
