Daintree Village

daintree village

Daintree, or Daintree Village, is a small settlement of less than a hundred people on the banks of the Daintree River in North Queensland, about 110km. north of Cairns.
The town was settled by timber cutters who came here looking for the big red cedar trees in the 1880s, they cut down huge numbers of trees and floated them down the river lashed together as rafts to take them to the sawmills.
When the timber started running out and other industries such as dairy and beef became the local livelyhood, all the produce was transported by boat until 1933 when the road finally reached the village.
The village is named after Richard Daintree, who has spent several years in the 1800's in Queensland as the Government geologist.
Nowadays the town lives on tourism and there are numerous tour operators that take you out on the Daintree river to spot the big saltwater crocodiles, as well as other birdlife.
Many serious birdwatchers come here specifically to spot birds on the specialized birdwatching tours.
There are also some other tours such as 8x8 tours and nature walks.

Although the town nowadays is not in the rainforest as the timber cutters removed all the trees a long time ago Daintree Village is still a very scenic place, and you can find rainforest nearby or go for a drive through the scenic valley beyond the village
The town has three cafes, a timber museum, a souvenir shop and galleries showcasing local arts and crafts, parks, picnic tables and public toilets. Local shops sell tickets for the various river cruises and land-based tours.

For accommodation, in the village and the nearby Daintree valley, there are several bed and breakfasts and farmstays each offering a unique location and experience which is mostly different from those found in the rainforest. Other accommodation options range from the local caravan park to a world renowned resort and spa.

While there consider a self-guided walk, to a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole at Cassowary Falls on the Upper Daintree Road, or an 8WD off-road rainforest and mountain tour.
