Brits should check out the Daintree Rainforest, which is the oldest rainforest in the world.

Brits on flights to Australia should take the opportunity to visit the Daintree Rainforest, which is the oldest rainforest in the world.

It is a popular spot for travellers wanting to get away from the world as it has many acres of untouched natural beauty to enjoy.

It is approximately 135 million years old and a cornucopia of plant and animal life that predates human life by many years.

The traditional owners of the island are the Kuku Yalariji tribe, who are one of thousands of aboriginal tribes in Australia.

The wildlife is exotic. Cruise boats take people on a tour of the area, zipping past reptiles like crocodiles and pythons.

It is believed that Sir John Banks was the first man to record the areas existence when he arrived there in the 1770s.

He was travelling with none other than the very famous Captain Cook on the HMS Endeavour.

The Daintree was given a World Heritage Listing on the 9th December 1988.
