Then there’s the amazing Daintree Rainforest where one should visit the Rainforest Habitat with its over 120 species of wildlife, and hand-feed the kangaroos. The stunning coastline and hinterland of the area will be that much more spectacular by taking a helicopter or a Hot Air balloon ride. Read more about Port Douglas, Australia
