Our Environment

When you walk the trails of Mossman Gorge, marvel at a rushing waterfall, or rest under a leafy, lush tree, you’re stepping through history – 135 million years’ worth, in fact. That’s how long the landscape of the Daintree Rainforest has been evolving. Today, it’s the world’s oldest continuously surviving rainforest, spanning 120,000 hectares of land and water. 

Just one hectare of the Daintree Rainforest is home to an estimated 30,000 species of plants and animals, making it one of the most complex ecosystems on earth.
