These are only some of the animals you may encounter during your visit to the Daintree rainforest, there are many more, some are common and you may see them anywhere, some are harder to find and you may need the help of a guide on one of the guided walks or other tours that are available in this area.
They are a great source of inspiration and can be a part of meditation techniques and can even inspire study into the environment and wildlife of the world. A trip to the Rainforest Hideaway is certainly as good or better than meditation classes in Sydney.
