The Daintree Rainforest is amongst the oldest rainforests on Earth, estimated to be over 135 million years old. It is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest remaining in Australia, located on the north east coast of Queensland. ​The Daintree meets the Great Barrier Reef which is the only place on earth where two World Heritage sites meet. The threats to the Daintree include global warming and residential development.
