In Far North Queensland, the ancient Daintree Rainforest meets the iconic Great Barrier Reef to create one of the most important ecological
habitats in the world. Join part-time adventurer Shuang Hu as she visits this unique and beautiful location to discover its history, its secrets, and humanity’s relationship with the region.
The journey begins with scuba training along the outer edge of the reef, where Shuang’s nerves instantly give way to the amazement at the underwater world that unfolds before her. From there, she visits the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre to help in the release of a turtle named Billie, and visits coral-spawning grounds on Mackay Reef.
Shuang’s trip then turns inland as she sets out to explore the oldest rainforest in the world. From a boat ride down a crocodile-infested river to a rafting tour in the Barron Gorge, the adventure becomes action-packed before calming down to feast on local culinary delights.
As the film comes to a close, Shuang reflects on how her journey has given her a newfound appreciation for the only place in the world where two heritage-listed locations sit side-by-side.
