11/8/2012: We arrived later in the afternoon to the Daintree Village for a three night stay. We were expecting rainforest, but the area is mostly cow pastures with a few patches of remnant rainforest. Anyway, there is a nearby waterfall, and for $10, you can walk on the road to visit it.

After walking to the waterfall (which has a great swimming hole) we were shocked to find that the store had closed thus depriving us any chance to buy beer. We were forced to travel to a nearby "eco" lodge (the "eco" stands for "expensive and sterile").
