      Daintree Rainforest Visit with a 1 year old

      State of Queensland Apr 2, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      Hi VTers!

      I have been doing a lot of reading on the Daintree Rainforest. Little did I know that there are so many different areas to explore! It seems like these all offers different things to see in the rainforest, but my main concern is that we will have a 1 year old with us. I am trying to determine if there is an area that will be easier for us to visit with him. We will most likely have to carry him. As much as we would like to do a hike through the rainforest, I don't think that will be possible, but we would definitely like to see as much of the environment as we can.

      Cape Tribulation has caught our eye, but the Daintree Discovery Centre and Mossman Gorge Center also sound like they provide good options for traveling with a young child.

      We will have a rental car 4WD. 

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

      Thanks so much, Kimberly

      We are planning for a holiday trip to Adelaide and Kangaroo Island.
      Would it be a good place to visit for a 4 year old kid?

      Perhaps, if someone could help me with the following questions, it would be of a great help to plan my travel.

      1. How many days would it require to cover all the wildlife attractions around Adelaide?

      2. What are the best value hotels to stay in Adelaide and Kangaroo Island, perhaps around any Indian restaurants?

      3. Would anyone please help me to list must see attractions especially wildlife attractions?

      4. To know about budget car rental places would be of a great help. Also could anyone please let me know how the prices are for renting a car?

      5. Are there any guide book, website or an trustable agent recommended?

      6. What are the upcoming events in this season?

      I really appreciate your help.
