You can too, just book here.
8 of the best FREE ACTIVITIES for kids who go camping in the Daintree Rainforest.
- Go Fishing off the rocks at Cow Bay Beach. At both ends of the beach there are good rock shelves to fish from. There is an awesome swing from a coconut tree in the middle of the beach too. Don’t forget to be croc wise near the water! We got our bait and ice creams from the Daintree Rainforest Village shop.
- We felt like Tarzan when we launched off the tree swing into Emmagen Creek waterhole. There is a huge rope swing in the tree hanging over the deepest part of the waterhole. You have to walk a bush trail to find it, and it is a challenging climb over tree roots to get into the hole, if you don’t just jump in.
- Take your bike for a spin down the dirt side roads. We spotted cassowaries with little chicks one day. There was heaps of Casso poop all down the road, so they must go there a lot! The poop is full of rainforest seeds, so the forest will keep regenerating.
- Go to the FREE Madjaa boardwalk. It is a mangrove forest and kind of creepy and mysterious. We found Peppermint Stick Insects in there, who squirt a peppermint liquid from their collar, when they feel threatened. And we carefully searched the giant billabong for crocodiles.
- Go Hiking on the 3k trail circuit around Jindalba. We were on the hunt for tree kangaroos, and saw them high up in the canopy.
- Take some goggles to Mason’s swimming hole and spy on all the tiny rainbow fish, the cheeky archer fish will come right to you, plus there are wild turtles and another tree swing! This swimming hole is long enough to do laps! Flip them a few golds coins to enter. And they make Crocodile burgers!
- Building a cool beach shack with palm fronds and driftwood on Thornton Beach… with the mountains and misty forests as the back drop, very Robinson Crusoe.
- Getting the fire pit fully charged up at the camp ground each night.
The firewood was provided for free and we bought marshmallows from the servo shop. Go full screen on the video.
