Daintree Discovery Centre

Cow Bay, Douglas Area

A multi-award winner, the Discovery Centre is nestled in the heart of the rainforest, 10 kilometres north of the Daintree River.

The Centre is a 'must see' for anyone visiting the area and where you can experience the rainforest at every level - from the forest floor to the upper most reaches of the canopy.

From the top of the 23 metre high Canopy Tower you can see spectacular orchids and if you're lucky you might just spot a python curled up in a giant basket fern. The spectacular Aerial Walkway provides unprecedented access to the mid level rainforest. You may see a Cassowary with a clutch of chicks wandering along the creek below.

The Display Centre has a DVD theatre with films on conservation, cassowaries, crocodiles and more. Interactive computer kiosks have animated DVD's and the Jurassic Forest walk, featuring simulated life-like dinosaurs from 100 million years ago to more recent mega fauna.

Self guided audio tours feature interesting information of how the traditional local Aboriginal people made good use of the natural features of the rainforest.
