Daintree Forest

The natural grandeur of Far North Queensland will envelop you when you visit our stylish and luxurious Cairns City Apartments. Our Accommodation Cairns is a few minutes drive to some of Australia’s most exciting nature destinations.

Stay in our Cairns luxury apartments, and explore the World Heritage-listed Daintree National Park, the largest rainforest in Australia. According to scientists, Daintree actually began taking shape under the sea about 400 million years ago when Australia was still part of Gondwana, the original continent.

Daintree hence is home to more than 3,000 species of plants and 315 mammal species, 13 of which are indigenous only to the Daintree area, including the tree kangaroo and the spotted-tailed quoll, a cat-sized carnivorous marsupial.

Daintree’s exceptional flora and fauna makes it the perfect place for activities like birdwatching, fishing, and “croc spottin”. There are a number of interesting bird species found in the Daintree area including the buff-breasted paradise-kingfisher, the pied imperial-pigeon, and cassowaries, the second-largest flightless bird in Australia. Another rare bird, the orange-footed scrubfowl, can be found on the rainforest floor with their compost mounds where their eggs are incubated. Fishing is also a popular pastime in area with waters harbouring huge barramundi.

If you’re looking for an out-of-the-mundane holiday activity, the approachable staff of our serviced apartments Cairns can help you book the right tours. There are about 70 crocodiles in the Daintree River, and the largest is around 5 metres long. So take a deep breath, and ready your camera for an encounter with a massive Mr. Freshy.

Famished after an excitement-packed afternoon? A couple of restaurants offer delicious meals with a Daintree touch. The longest running restaurant in the area, the Tea House Restaurant, offers first-rate local produce.  The Julaymba Restaurant & Gallery meanwhile gives you access to bush recipes probably concocted by the Kuku Yalanji people, Daintree’s traditional residents.

We invite you to pack your bags, take the next flight to Cairns, and choose among our affordable Accommodation CairnsClarendon on Spence is a comfy apartment from which you can explore the Daintree National Park. Meanwhile, the elegantly designed Regency on Spence is located at the heart of Cairns CBD so you can shop or dine before taking in the sights, scents, and stimulating experiences of the Daintree National Park.
