With Australia having now officially welcomed back the springtime, landscapes abundant with gorgeous greenery, like today’s image of the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest, will become more commonplace down under. On the north-east coast of Queensland, the Daintree is positively ripe with adventure. Adrenaline junkies, for example, can zipline through the rainforest canopy, while those with a keen eye can cruise the waterways on the lookout for saltwater crocodiles. Covering around 460 square miles, the forest is said to present one of the most complex ecosystems on our planet. In fact, the scenery here is so beautiful that James Cameron reportedly drew inspiration from it for his hit film Avatar, while Sir David Attenborough called it “the most extraordinary place on Earth”. That’s good enough for us!
