If you have the time, take the drive through the Daintree to Cape Tribulation. A beautiful drive taking in breathtaking scenery in a pristine part of the world. If you are lucky you might see a Cassowarry like we did. There are many places to stop and have great food. There are no costs, if you choose not to take... More

In 1973, before Cairns became a tourist destination and Port Douglas was but a long jetty and a mixed business, the only practical way to get from Cairns to Cooktown was on the mail boat, which was a trip in itself. Alas, it no longer runs. So we caught the boat on a hot November day. As the boat pulled... More

Walking trails, mangrove boardwalk, pristine beaches and tranquil rainforests make for a memorable and inspiring holiday. We stayed at Cape Trib Camping Ground and thoroughly enjoyed their wood fired pizzas, drinks on the deck and magic muffins and coffee. Our camper trailer was parked no more than 50 metres from Myall Beach. A visit to the Cape Tribulation General Store,... More

Cape Trib is a lovely drive. It takes about 3 hours at a leisurely rate from Port Douglas. It is very pretty and has some beautiful untouched places to visit. If you love nature then this is for you. The beach is unspoilt and you can swim there, just watch out for salties in the water. There is a short... More

We wandered along three different beaches and mostly they were very quiet. Soft sand and gentle waves lapping our feet. A great relaxing day

Have seen better in other travels so had expected much more in a World Heritage area. The short Cape Trib board walk is underwhelming at 150m and it doesn't reach the end of the peninsula. One of the 1-2km boardwalks nearby was better. Was amazed at the lack of info on the geologic history of the area which is a... More

This is very far north queensland, and you need to take at least 2 days out of your tirp to travel here, it was lovely, but I am not sure it was worth it. The lake tour was nice, seen loads of crocs, snakes and pigs, but it was also the same old things as usual. I suppose seeing these... More

Have always wanted to see Cape Tribulation.We did a self drive day trip from Trinity Beach. Very pretty beach and the drive through the rainforest was beautiful. It gets quite crowded with all the different tour groups, however worth at least one visit when in the Cairns area.
