ABOUT us

Daintree Life started as a way to showcase the unique Daintree region in 2017 via social media. From there (on the suggestion of a friend), it developed into a specific project concept in early 2018. After much planning and liaising, it has now progressed to the next stage as a business model - identifying key areas and then revegetating those areas, with a goal of planting 500,000 trees by 2030. We are Dave and Connie, and we are Daintree Life.

“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”

- Nelson Henderson
