I would do 2 nights Daintree - depending on your budget u cannot go past Silky Oaks Lodge overlooking the Daintree River. - 5 nights PD will give u a lovely experience.
As Ellemay says Silky Oaks is beautiful but it actually overlooks the Mossman River just north of the little town of Mossman.
If you really want to explore "the Daintree" I'd suggest basing yourself further north, either in the Daintree Village area on the south side of the Daintree River or north of the river towards Cape Tribulation.
www.destinationdaintree.com has loads of information about accommodation, tours, driving times etc. etc.
4-5 nights in PD and 2-3 in the Daintree would be ideal, depending on your interests!
Thanks for the replies, thats what i was hoping to do so will go with that. Will have a look at the accomodation mentioned. Cheers.
Definitely a couple of nights in the Daintree, Cockatoo Hill Retreat is breathtaking otherwise do a little bit of research and you're sure to find an awesome holiday home to suit your budget that will blow away any resort.
The Daintree is so much more magical when you spend a couple of nights there and listen to the sounds of the rainforest as you drift off to sleep and you get a much better sense of the world's oldest rainforest.
Thanks again for the info, almost have it all sorted now. Looking forward to the trip, nearly 40 years since I have been up that way, wonder if it has changed much!!!!
Another vote for a night or two in Daintree. On our last trip we did 7 nights in PD but that was primarily because we got a better rate by staying 7 nights in PD.
