Take the ferry for free
TO entice more visitors across the Daintree River, the Daintree Discovery Centre is offering a full refund on the cost of the Daintree River Ferry for the month of February.
‘‘We want people to discover just how incredible the Daintree is,’’ said Discovery Centre director Ron Birkett. ‘‘While some conditions do apply this isn’t an offer exclusive for locals, it is available to absolutely everyone.
‘‘We are heading into what is traditionally our quietest period, so if we can make it even more attractive for people to visit us, then that is our aim.’’
Mr Birkett said the promotion coincided nicely with the influx of visitor numbers for Chinese New Year, however he said the idea behind it was to help boost visitor numbers north of the Daintree River.
It is estimated around 400,000 people visit the Daintree Rainforest each year, with the majority of these travelling in their own vehicle.
