“Dissapointing to be honest”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

The place is 'tired' and lacking a lot of much needed maintenance. To be honest I enjoyed the Mossman Gorge more than the Daintree.

The beauty of the rainforest cannot be adequately described...it's almost as if you can taste the fresh oxygen produced by the trees, vines, ferns and mosses that abound! Smell the humus, sight the flora and fauna and be at one with nature, take time out to enjoy the magnitude of this natural beauty...I absolutely recommend it!

“Cape Tribulation: amazing wildlife, tree frogs, beauty”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Cape tribulation is a highlight of my 2 years traveling Australia and New Zealand. I highly recommend staying in Cape Trib itself for several days, not just passing through on a day tour. The eco-adventures are too good to miss! Horseback riding on the beach, wonderful night walks in the jungle with a guide, kayaking, amazing. Tree frogs, incredible rainforest, breathtaking beach, refreshing watering holes to swim in (get the locals to show you the ones without crocs), enough adventure tourism activities to keep you busy for a week... amazing. The place itself has an indescribably relaxing, healing energy to it. The oldest continuing rainforest *in the world,* the Daintree rainforest around Cape Tribulation has an enormous richness of wildlife whose isolated evolutionary history means they are found nowhere else in the world. They are also pretty safe-- do a "jungle walk" with a guide and you will find out that it is an adventure you don't have to be scared of-- none of the snakes are extremely venemous, few of the spiders common to that area will really hurt you. Unless you get in the way of a Cassoary, or actively poke at a croodile for a good picture (which a Belgian tourist did years ago) you should be alright. Locals love telling stories about bumbling backpackers hurting themselves, but the stories are rare. Just make sure you are informed before you go anywhere. I first visited Cape Tribulation in 2006 and then again in 2012, it was always a "light footprint" area but in those 6 years it actually became *even more* unspoiled due to lack of tourism. As a female traveler on my own I felt relaxed and the atmosphere was great-- as anywhere, be very cautious though. I always tell people where I am going, the locals can be a bit rough around the edges (lots of drinking and a bit aggressive), and however cruisy the atmosphere it is always best to be on the cautious side. As adventures go this is accessible and sparkling with green juicy gorgeousness and amazing wildlife!
