About D’Arcy of Daintree
Mike – The D’Arcy of Daintree – is an accredited Wet Tropics Tour Guide, nature writer and world traveller. Only the magic of the Daintree has lured him and his wife Trish to this rainforest paradise.
D’Arcy of Daintree Tours started in August 2010 in response to visitors wanting more personal and in-depth experience of the rainforest. During his first few years in the Daintree, Mike had immersed himself in the ethos of the area and started learning about the people as well as the fauna and flora. Working with various local tourism businesses had provided him with valuable insights and understanding of the history and dynamics of this special region. His previous career had him involved with sports development, training and community development through sport.
While responsible for international sports development at the Australian Sports Commission, his love for sharing special places and history had him hosting and guiding many groups of visitors from the Asia Pacific throughout Australia.
With his wife Trish he creates Podcasts and blogs about fauna, flora and places of the Daintree.
Mike has a special respect for Indigenous people and their culture and a long term interest in supporting Indigenous development in Australia.
He is committed to providing a quality and interactive experience, while keeping each tour unique and tailored to the interests of his customers.
