Nestled amongst some of the oldest rain forest in the world, and only 6km from the Daintree Rainforest Hotel, sits an iconic part of the Daintree experience.
The Daintree Rainforest Hotel is a unique destination for visitors to the Daintree. Built in the 1990’s by the letting of Government Tender, the hotel was to be the hub of a growing dynamic Cow Bay. However, with the moratorium on development within the Daintree in the late 90’s, the Cow Bay Hotel now sits in the middle of ancient Rainforest as an icon to the earlier plans for the area.
The hotel provides an “other” Daintree Experience for visiting tourists and independent travelers. You can meet with locals who can direct you to other out of the way places to enjoy a swim, catch a fish or to relax in the seclusion of the area.
There are air conditioned motel rooms available for visitors wanting to enjoy all of what the Daintree has to offer staying over a period of days.
Fitted out with timber taken from the site when cleared, the hotel houses the longest one continuous timber slab bar in Australia. This you will not see anywhere else.
Pop in and say hello and rest your elbows on the iconic Daintree Rainforest Hotel Bar while you enjoy a cold beer…done the old-fashioned way, our beer is on ice!

Once you have crossed the Daintree River, you will instantly be taken to another world.
Boasting exotic flora and fauna, guided or self guided tours through ancient rain forest, there are plenty of activities to enjoy this truly magical part of the world.
With the Daintree area sitting in the tropical north, there is a wide variety of tropical fruits and vegetables to be enjoyed and seafood aplenty. This is enhanced by the dairy country of the Atherton Tablelands producing gourmet cheeses and chocolates.
The Daintree River Ferry provides the only sealed road access to the northern part of the Daintree and access to Cape Tribulation.
Access to Cow Bay, Daintree and Cape Tribulation is via a river ferry which operates daily between 5am and midnight.
