Today we are going to find out about The Daintree Rainforest in Australia.
Rainforests are forests which grow in areas of high rainfall.
Rainforests nearest to the equator, where the climate is very hot and wet all through the year, are evergreen because the trees can grow all of the time and so are always in leaf. They are found in South and Central America, Central Africa, Indonesia, Malaysia and the north eastern tip of Australia.
