    Daintree Ferry

    When going north from Daintree Village, you must cross the Daintree River - and the north and south banks are linked by the Daintree Ferry.

    The Ferry is a cable ferry and it operates from 6am until midnight - seven days a week. Tickets are purchased on board the ferry. We only waited about 15 minutes, but be aware of peak times - heading north (10 - 1pm) and heading south (3 - 6pm). More than 400,000 passengers are using the ferry every year…

    If you want to reach the Daintree rainforest you will have to get across the Daintree river. This river separates the Daintree rainforest from the rest of Australia. In some brochures they tell you that passing over this crocodile infested river is an symbolic entry into the tropical rainforest. But it's true what they say because you are entering an unique place, a place of beauty.

    The Daintree river Ferry is the only way to cross the river and it's located an 50 km north of Port Douglas. It operates by a cable system and it can take maximum 16 vehicles across the river. It takes you about 5 minutes to complete the cross over.

    It's also the only cable ferry that is operating in a World Heritage area in the world.

    The Daintree Ferry makes its first crossing for the day at 6AM and it doesn't stop until midnight and it runs seven days a week. The cost is about 16 dollars for the round trip. And be patient it can be busy sometimes, especially if you think that there are more then 1100 vehicles per day that make this crossing.

    I did see tour vans but I didn't see any public transportation going to the Daintree National Park. Best to rent a car so you can stop whenever you see one of the amazing sites
