A few words about
who we are
In 1987, Lee & Janet Lafferty opened the Daintree River Cruise Centre with a vision to share the spectacular wildlife and rainforest in the most environmentally sensitive way possible.
Dedicated conservationists with an infectious passion for wildlife, the Lafferty name quickly became synonymous with eco-tourism and the Daintree River.
Lee was one of the original guides on the river and gained a reputation as the authority on its flora and fauna. With his encyclopaedic memory and constant fascination with the river, he spent the rest of his life educating others and sharing his passion through his tours.
When Lee passed away in 2015 his daughter Kianna inherited the business and assumed the responsibility of championing this amazing eco system to the world.
Kianna has remained dedicated to operating sustainably and in harmony with the environment and local community. She continues to uphold all the values put in place by her father and has proven herself, not only as a business owner, but also as a passionate environmental activist.
