Daintree River was discovered by Europeans in 1873, when Scottish geologist and explorer George Elphinstone Dalrymple named the river and the first settlement ‘Daintree’ after Queensland’s Agent-General in London, Richard Daintree.  First settled in the late 1870’s by timber cutters who were searching for Red Cedar near the river, the loggers moved the felled timber down the river by constructing rafts from the logs and some of their original tools may be viewed in the Daintree Timber Gallery.

Daintree Village is an hour and a half’s scenic drive North of Cairns and just 35 minutes form Port Douglas.  For over 25 years, the Timber Gallery has sought out only the most unique species of wood to create their world-famous vases, bowls and other natural works of art.

For over 20 years the Daintree Timber Gallery has sourced only the most unique species to create their globally acclaimed works of art and utility woodware – nature’s rainbow, captured in Australian native timbers.
