Second time visited, this time we spoke to a local who told us about a little beach shack 10 min walk up the beach. Nice walk along the beach, water absolutely beautiful in colour. Picked up a few coral and petrified wood pieces along beach. Water lovely to swim in. Plenty of canoes out in water.

Cape Tribulation is a long drive from anywhere, but well worth the trip. Lots of history in the area, from Aboriginal times to the days of English exploration. Wide, wide beach and interesting rocks, along with that pounding surf.

Nice place to relax and enjoy scenery and wildlife. Tour guide gave us a great little story and walk. Water was super warm, just be careful and watch out for the wildlife.

Cape Tribulation, what a name. It instantly brings back the troubled waters and troubled times cook had here centuries ago. But its not just the whites who have history here. I cannot understate the importance of talking to the Aboriginal folks who live up here, their stories and myths of the area are far more fantastical and incredible than the... More

Cape Tribulation beach is a stunning, peaceful place located on the Coral Sea where 2 World Heritage listed places join - The Daintree Rainforest (Wet Tropics World Heritage Area) & the Great Barrier Reef. Spend a day (or more) exploring the wonders of the surrounding national park. A day trip from either Cairns (about 110km) or Port Douglas, you need... More

Not well sign posted, easy to miss the sign. A short drive off the main road to a small parking area. Short walk to a typical Australian coral beach. Without its' historical connection this is just a beach.

The board walk from Cape Trib. was diverted due to renovations, but could be met up with a bit further on from the usual beginning.

We caught the ferry early in the morning and spent the entire day exploring all the jungle tracks, beach walks and the Daintree Discovery Centre.

This is one of the most magnificent park in AU. It is rather isolated as it is a beautiful since it is a long travel from Cairns. It is the place where the Daintree National Park, the Wet Tropics World Heritage area and the coral reef are intermixed. It is also the place where the Endeavor of Captain Cook ran... More
