I ganders my way to the Cape via tour company and couldn't have expected better views! The crabs along the beach make some pretty good photo opportunities with the way they dig their holes.

You should set aside amble time to visit Cap Tribulation National Park especially as the access are either by ferry from the Port Douglas side or by Four week drive (The real stuff - not the sizzy 4x4) from Cooktown. There are really nice nature view and landscape. Be sure to stop and take the board walks through the Rainforest... More

it takes a little driving to get there from Cairns (and even from Port Douglas), but once you step on that beach......the scenery just blows you away. the only regret I have is to have seen it during low tide. Would have loved to have a glimpse of this paradise when the tide comes in. Along with Mossman Gorge (and... More

We did Cape Trib' in a day with the Daintree. This is a must if you are in the area. We didn't do a tour, but hired a car out of Cairns (approx AU$80 per day with full insurance) and drove ourselves. From there, you can drive yourself to any of the destinations, and basically go at your own pace.... More

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
