The Daintree is a Strange Paradise

24/08/2013

 
Everything in the Daintree area – land, water, plants and animals  – is always shifting and drifting, revealing new perspectives and opportunities to explores the awe-inspiring beauty of this unique ecosystem.

We can never be quite sure of our ground in Daintree… channels through vast mangrove forest and sawgrass marshes open and close, almost overnight; lush vegetation hiding human traces… these wetlands are not just beautiful, they also provide vital ecosystem services, preserving major states of the earth’s evolutionary history.

 The Australian Governement lists these attributes, amongst others, as evidence for the Wet Tropics’ World Heritage values.
