Family Accommodation

family holidays in the daintree

Planning a family holiday in the Daintree?
Here's some information to help you make it a success, from family friendly accommodation to tours that offer family discounts.
The Daintree is a good safe family holiday destination as long as you observe a few basic rules:
Do not allow your children to go to the water's edge of the Daintree River and other mangrove lined creeks, this is crocodile territory, and even though you may not see crocodiles, they probably see you! A crocodile can swim under water at high speed without a ripple on the surface, and burst out with enough speed and power to take horses and cows!
Playing on the beach is no problem, it is simply not in the crocodile's behaviour to attack on a beach.
During the summer months, roughly November till May, there can be box jellyfish in the ocean, keep out of the sea or wear a stinger suit.
Don't let your kids feed the cassowary if you are lucky enough to bump in to one.


Accommodation for families

The B&Bs are usually not set up for children, but there is a good choice of holiday homes available to rent which will give you more privacy and freedom, and the opportunity to cook your own meals.
Resorts with swimming pools can be another good choice, but probably not PK's, which caters more for the party-hard crowds. And there are also several camping areas in the Daintree for the more adventurous.

Rainforest Hideaway
Cape Tribulation

B&B accommodation deep inside daintree rainforest

Rainforest Hideaway at Cape Tribulation normally operates as a B&B, but you can also have the place to yourself for a family of up to 6 people.
Please note that there are several unfenced fishponds, so you need to keep an eye on your children.
This unique jungle style house will give you both comfort and an insight into living in the rainforest on solar electricity and water from the creek, and away from mobile phone reception and hair dryers.
Being deep inside the Daintree rainforest also guarantees abundant wildlife; bandicoots, birds, frogs, goannas, and even the famous cassowary pay a visit here!

Things to do with families

You can't go wrong with a visit to the Daintree Icecream Company, try homemade icecream with such flavours as soursop, wattle seed, mango, and a lot more that you have never even heard of!
Find the Daintree Icecream Company on the main road between Cow Bay and Cooper Creek.
There is another homemade icecream place in Floravilla on the corner of the main road and the road to Cow Bay Beach.

Besides sea kayaking tours you can also hire your own kayak for a famly adventure, at Cape Tribulation Camping and the Cape Trib Beachhouse.

In Whet, Cape Tribulation's favourite restaurant, there is a small 25 comfy seats cinema upstairs, which shows movies at 2PM, 4PM and 8PM. Especially on rainy days, which can happen in a rainforest, a great idea!

At Lync Haven they have some kangaroos hopping around in a fenced off area.

In Cape Tribulation there is the Snake House, free entry to see some pretty big pythons!

And of course there are numerous beaches to play around on and rainforest walks to do.
Compared to other destinations there are perhaps not a lot of attractions specially for children, so if your children are not interested in nature based activities then perhaps the Daintree is not the right destination for your family....
