Exploring the Daintree Rainforest

If you are an adrenaline-junkie, you are probably always on the lookout for the next gravity-defying, thrilling activity to get your heart racing. Why not combine nature with your next endeavour, and go jungle surfing through the Daintree Rainforest? Take a look at this awesome 360 video to see exactly what it is like to zoom through the jungle. Click into the video below and use your mouse to navigate left, right, up and down all whilst taking in the beautiful rainforest!


Did you know that the Daintree Rainforest is the oldest continuously surviving tropical rainforest in the world, at an estimated 165 million years old? This makes it tens of millions of years older than the Amazon Rainforest. It stretches a whopping 1200 square kilometres, meaning it is 16 times the size of Singapore. Many of the insects, animals and plant life are not found anywhere else in the world!

The great thing about soaring through the rainforest by zipline, is that you get to see it from a whole new perspective and take in its’ sheer beauty. The ziplines range from 37-95m with speeds over 45km/hr, at 7 to 16 metres high. You can ever zipline upside down! It’s a great way to get a birds-eye view of one of the most special rainforests in the world!
