Sitting up near the top of the Great Dividing Range
, between the mountains and the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest encompasses approximately 1,200 square kilometres, from the Daintree River north to Cooktown and west to the Great Dividing Range
The topography of the region is diverse ranging from the eastern highlands of the Great Dividing Range
, including the Illawarra Escarpment in the north, and Mt Kosciusko and the snow fields in the south west, and a beautiful coastline that includes many areas covered in rainforest.

Adjoining the Great Dividing Range
, it boasts vast serene bushland, spectacular cliffs and gorges, wilderness areas, waterfalls, and rivers.
Over the next few months these initiatives will really start coming into play--raising crucial awareness of the holistic failure of environmental laws along the Great Dividing Range
and mobilising communities across the country.
