While visiting the region you will have the opportunity to see some of the best that nature has to offer. Where the rainforest meets the sea, the Douglas region is a world-renowned tourist destination enveloped by several of Australia’s World Heritage listed, magnificent natural boundaries: Wet Tropics rainforest-covered mountain range to the west and north, and 95km of Coral Sea coastline and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park to the east.
Spanning 120,000 hectares, the magnificent Daintree Rainforest is the largest remnant of tropical rainforest in Australia and the oldest continuously surviving rainforest in the world.
In the interest of protecting our unique environments visitors are advised that camping, including staying overnight in caravans and mobile homes, in the Douglas Shire is only permitted in licensed caravan parks or camping grounds. Please ensure that if you are planning to visit the area that you have accommodation arranged prior to arrival.
