Paradise!

This is a place you will want to come back some day. The rainforest meets the beach and thats exactly where you will put up your tent or camper van. A very extraordinary place.

Such a wonderful drive up from Cairns, especially after crossing the Daintree River, the scenery just gets better and better. Beautiful winding roads through the rainforest, and great beaches when you get there too. We stayed for a few nights up there and did most of the boardwalks, well worth the time to wander around and explore the rainforest! Tip-take... More

The drive through the Daintree is one of breathtaking views and exceptional scenery. Cape Tribulation is a must see! The only let down was when we went to get ice creams for the kids. The "Friendly Grocer" was anything but, the shop assistant appeared very unfriendly and annoyed by tourists asking questions.

We travelled from Port Douglas. We crossed the Daintree River by ferry and a most interesting drive ensued. The good news is that the road is paved. There are lots of spped bumps to slow motorists down to protect the wildlife, in particular the rare Cassowary Bird, one of which we were privileged to see on the side of the... More

Absolutely magnificent. There is no water like this that I have seen. Enthralling experience with God's great creation. The drive to CT is one of the best I have completed. We will be going back for a third visit.

From Port Douglas we had a great drive to Cape Tribulation beach the key to the success was leaving early and avoiding the queues at the Daintree river ferry. The ferry costs $25 return. with many tour groups and buses if you go too late you can spend a few hours queuing. There were quite a few tandem trucks on... More

Cape Tribulation is magic. It is a great spot where the rainforest meets the ocean. The look out from Cape Tribulation provides the magical views down the coast and you can see the pristine rainforst meeting this magical blue water. A must is to go down and have a walk along the beach which has this beautiful white sand. At... More

Bit of a drive but well worth it. The beach at Cape Trib is just beautiful but equally there are many other beaches along the way plus lots of walks, viewpoints and other distractions. We only spent a day here but I can see how a few days might do it more justice. About 90 mins drive from Port Douglas.

Cape Tribulation was a beautiful spot, exactly where the rainforest meets the reef! I probably would have preferred to visit in summer to experience some blue skies and go for a swim, but the views over the ocean were still amazing, and it was such a good experience to explore the rainforest.
