A couple of hours north of Cairns is the 110 million year old Daintree forest.

The Daintree forest is one of the oldest on the planet. You can see living plants that are fossils elsewhere else in the world.

If you head south to Townsville Australia (~4.5 hours) there are some amazing things to see and do. Some of the road signs along the way are hilarious.
