Promoting positive outcomes in the heart of the Daintree Rainforest via education and a goal of planting 500,000 trees by 2030.

“The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”

- Chinese Proverb

trees planted to date: 7060

C10101538 use this number at approved drop off centres in Qld to donate your 10c refund eligible drinks containers to Daintree Life rainforest revegetation.


Working in conjunction with Douglas Shire Council, various stakeholders and private landowners, our aims are to identify key areas of land for suitable revegetation to promote positive outcomes for the Daintree ecosystem and the broader environment, expand the tourism experience, and help the local economy.


Our current project is a former weedy bank, which we are replacing with 209 rainforest trees; funded by generous donations from the public and from Rainforest 4. This is a known Bennett's Tree-kangaroo crossing point and the planting will hopefully allow these rare animals to cross the road without coming down to the ground.


So honoured to have spent time with Costa Georgiadis the much-loved host of Gardening Australia and to have then won the landcare category in the Let it grow, Douglas Garden Awards - judged by Costa. Here he is planting a tree (a Brown Pine) on one of our revegetation sites with Connie. The full story is on our blog post here

“Daintree Life would like to acknowledge the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people who are the Traditional Custodians of this land. We would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people present.

Creating a better environment - 500,000 trees by 2030
