Protected under the World Heritage list, the tropical rainforest is equivalent to the size of Sydney, Australia. The Daintree Rainforest is one of the most complex tropical rainforest ecosystems in the world, with plant diversity and a structural complexity that can’t be found anywhere else in Australia. The beauty of the rainforest and the wildlife that can be found within the rainforest aren’t the only reason it’s a popular tourist destination, but it’s also a great place to learn about the continent’s history as it acts as a map to how the continent has transformed over many years.
