Jungle Surfing in the Daintree Rainforest

Encompassing lush rainforest and incredible views out across the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest is one of the oldest landscapes in Australia as well as one of the most unique. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Listed area, it promises an eclectic mix of flora, fauna, and beautiful backdrops.

But it’s not just natural scenery that keeps visitors busy here. There is also a selection of adventurous activities you can get stuck into, particularly if you’re looking to explore the rainforest from a different perspective.

Like Jungle Surfing, which is one of the go-to activities in the region. While whizzing through the undergrowth, you can explore the diverse array of ancient trees at the same time as getting your adrenalin fix.

What Exactly Is Jungle Surfing?

But what is this weird and wonderful sport?

Jungle Surfing is a unique activity that sees pursuers fly through the canopy of the Daintree Rainforest on a zip-wire. Along the way, you go from tree platform to tree platform to experience as much of the forest as possible in one go.

It is a fully guided experience and, while you go, you’ll learn unique insights about the forest and fun facts about the local wildlife.

What Can You Expect?

To begin with, you’ll be expertly hoisted onto the start platform. From there, you’ll whizz through the canopy at various heights, getting a unique perspective on the rainforest floor below. As you glide along, keep your eyes peeled for ancient trees, serene creeks, and the turquoise depths of the Great Barrier Reef in the distance.

Each platform promises something different. Ranging in height, from 2.5 metres to a whopping 19.5 metres above the canopy floor, you’ll be able to experience every layer of the Daintree Rainforest while Jungle Surfing.

If you’re wondering whether only the pros can do it, let us ease your mind. You don’t need any previous experiences to take part in this adventure and, through your knowledgeable guide, you’ll be told fascinating snippets of information about the forest around you at each and every platform stop off.

The best part? You can make the adventure as heart-racing as you like: either take things slow to browse the scenery in a laidback way, speed things up, or even hang upside down to enjoy the landscape from a completely unique perspective.

Jungle Surfing is a must-do if you’re looking for an adventurous way to get to know the Daintree Rainforest.
