Situated within the Cape Tribulation, this World Heritage protected site is about 100 million years of age, which makes it one of the oldest rainforests on the planet. If you want an adrenaline-pumping Australian adventure, this is the place to be. Just make sure you won’t be some crocodile’s next meal.
