I get the rain forest and the need for it, I get the history of Cook's visit, but it's doesn't appear to appeal to people that aren't bushwalkers. We were on the lookout for Cassowaries and the closest we came was some very funny road signs. Their speed bumps make city speed bumps look like twigs on the road... fierce... More

There was really nothing much to see on the drive up to Cape Trib. Saw no cassowary! The beaches were not suitable for swimming due to stingers and crocs. The ferry ride cost us $25 return. We only spent a couple of hours on the other side of the river. Government should consider building a bridge across the river and... More

So many boardwalks through the Daintree and beautiful beaches. Make sure you are on the car ferry by mid morning as there is just so much to do here. Grab a map and do the key boardwalks as they give you a great understanding of the rainforest.

Cape Tribulation National Park, it was a pleasure to visit. I wish we had stayed overnight, so that we could venture further into this place's beauty. Please, never, NEVER, ever build a bridge over the Daintree River. I would be afraid of overcrowding this amazing World Heritage area.

The Daintree is a magnificent place to visit. We saw some wild Cassowary near the start of the Bloomfield Track and the beaches and board walks are truly stunning. Saw a croc sun baking on the bank of a river too.

Just a place of great beauty, peace and serenity. I hope large groups of tourists don't destroy it in years to come - bet they do. Saw a male Cassowary strutting his stuff with two chicks which was a real bonus. Go early and miss the crowds - all 14 of them.

The rainforest is a magical place as is Cape Tribulation beach. Don't expect the trappings of modern society, this is a remote area and should be enjoyed as such. You feel like you are in an adventure just visiting the place. Anyone with a strong interest in the natural world will thoroughly enjoy an extended stay, if you just want... More

We drove out to cape tribulation from Port Douglas, beautiful scenery all the way, stopped off at the Daintree River to do a croc tour, and decided to cross the river on the ferry and travel up the coast to Cape Tribulation. It was an amazing drive, the scenery was remarkable. We arrived home late, and really worth it
