Daintree Rainforest Animals

 
 
 

The Wet Tropics rainforest is home to some truly unique animals. From kangaroos that live in trees to 6-foot tall prehistoric birds, the animal diversity is the best in the country. A half of Australia's bird species, a third of its mammals and frogs, a quarter of its reptiles and over 12000 insects have been catalogued so far. Many of these animals are very ancient and retain characteristics of the creatures found during the age of the dinosaurs - a real life Jurassic Park.
