I loved everything about Cape Trib, we drove right up to Emmogen Creek. I am a scenery freak though so it just gelled with me, the walks were very relaxing, the beaches just stunning. Unsure what people are expecting but there isnt a town there as such & yes it is a long drive just to get to Emmogen Creek... More

Cape Tribulation National Park basically consists of the world's oldest rainforest and wild, remote beaches with a several self-guided walks in order for people to experience and learn about the forest. There are local maps available that highlight each of the National Park walking tracks (Jindalba, Marrja, Dubuji, Kulki-Cape Tribulation lookout, Mount Sorrow & Emmogen Beach) or check out the...

We self drove from Port Douglas, the trip and spots of interest along the way were worth it. The visit to Cape Tribulation is a great spot for photos and a stretch of your legs along the boardwalk. The beach and views are spectacular - pity about the stingers and the Crocs. The toilets had burnt down day before -... More

Whilst this spot may be pitched as the junction of the Great Barrier Reef with the Daintree don't let that be the reason you go. Why: - There is not really a lot to do or see - The beach is typical FNQ - Stingers / Croc's, not the best sand (certainly Vs South East QLD and NSW beaches) and... More

It was beautiful, but not what I was expecting. We didn't go on a tour, we drove ourselves to Cape Tribulation. The most annoying thing was there not being much of a town centre. We stopped at Mason's Cafe and dipped in Mason's waterhole which was nice, then went for a walk on a boardwalk.. It felt like a waste... More

Loved this beach! A great place for cool photos with gorgeous looking water in the distance. The mangroves were amazing right on the beach. Looking back into the forest from the water was neat too. Recommend this beach.

we were quite disappointed, there was nothing special to see or do. We drove all the way to CapTribulation, stopped for lunch and left. I you have something else planned like a day at the reef, anything else may be more worthwhile.

Stunning scenery of every kind, i could have spent days just sitting and watching and not seeing everything. Not that far away from Cairns and a barge/ferry trip across the river. Barges leave all through the day and night. Well worth the trip.

We did mossman gorge and cape trib in one day, it was a fantastic day out. Cape trib is beautiful and the journey there is half the fun. Some fantastic beaches on the way and amazing roads and scenery. Don't go expecting something amazing at the end, it's just a lovely area overall. Rainforest meets the sea. Just as a... More

An amazing part of Queensland and of course everyone talks about the Great Barrier Reef but the Daintree Rainforest is in the Cape Tribulation National Park and is one of the only places where two Wold Heritage Parks meet...GBR and Daintree! The variety and size of some the the rainforest trees is astounding and the self guided walks are beautiful.... More
