Cape Tribulation

Stepping straight on to the beach from the rainforest is a very special experience at Cape Tribulation. This extraordinarily pretty stretch of the Daintree National Park is where you can climb aboard a fast boat to explore the Great Barrier Reef or take a kayak to nearby islands.

Marvel at empty beaches where driftwood and shells wash up to form natural sculptures, feel the wind in your hair as you ride a horse from the beach to the rainforest or pitch your tent so you can gaze at the ocean as soon as you wake. Taste exotic tropical fruits on a farm tour, try them in a locally made ice cream, refresh in a swimming hole or soar through the rainforest canopy on a flying fox.

Cape Tribulation is a bushwalking paradise with many short walks taking in the beaches or rainforest. The experienced can spend a day hiking to admire spectacular views from Mount Sorrow. Guided walks on private properties show you animals and plants you may otherwise miss or join a night tour to see nocturnal animals.

Australia's richest diversity of flora and fauna is found in this region, so a guided tour will explain the intricacies of this ancient environment and introduce you to the likes of the peppermint stick insect or the Boyd's forest dragon.

Cape Tribulation is popular with backpackers who enjoy the jungle setting and party atmosphere of the hostels. Accommodation options vary from camping grounds to resorts, bed and breakfasts and holiday houses.

Just 35 kilometres north of the Daintree River, Cape Tribulation is where the bitumen ends and a Four Wheel Drive is needed to venture further north.

Cape Tribulation: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Daintree Discovery Centre


A multi-award winner, the Discovery Centre is nestled in the heart of the rainforest, 10 kilometres north of the Daintree River.

The Centre is a 'must see' for anyone visiting the area and where you can experience the rainforest at every level - from the forest floor to the upper most reaches of the canopy.

From the top of the 23 metre high Canopy Tower you can see spectacular orchids and if you're lucky you might just spot a python curled up in a giant basket fern. The spectacular Aerial Walkway provides unprecedented access to the mid level rainforest. You may see a Cassowary with a clutch of chicks wandering along the creek below.

The Display Centre has a DVD theatre with films on conservation, cassowaries, crocodiles and more. Interactive computer kiosks have animated DVD's and new in 2016 is the Jurassic Forest walk, featuring simulated life-like dinosaurs from 100 million years ago to more recent mega fauna.

Self guided audio tours feature interesting information of how the traditional local Aboriginal people made good use of the natural features of the rainforest.

Cape Tribulation, Daintree National Park


Cape Tribulation, in Daintree National Park, is famed for steep rainforested mountains sweeping down to long sandy beaches and turquoise coastal waters.

One of the most biologically diverse areas in the world, this park is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and the coastal waters are within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. At Cape Tribulation, rainforest meets reef, and two world heritage areas collide, in spectacular style!

The Cape Tribulation section of the park stretches in a narrow strip from the Daintree River in the south to the Bloomfield River in the north and the dense upland rainforest that cloaks the coastal range contains many ancient plants and animals.

Camp at Noah Beach camping area and explore the park on walks ranging from the 650 metre return Jindalba boardwalk through tropical lowland rainforest, to the 1.2 kilometre return Marrja boardwalk through rainforest and mangroves. Experienced and well-prepared bushwalkers can tackle the 7 kilometre return Mount Sorrow ridge trail. Keep an eye out for cassowaries and drive slowly through cassowary territory. Remember to be croc wise around creeks and beaches.

Snapper Island, Hope Islands National Park


This high continental island, close to Port Douglas, boasts lush vine forests, dense eucalypt forest, mangroves and white sandy beaches. The islands and surrounding waters and fringing reefs are within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. Snapper Island is within easy reach of the coast by kayak or small boat, and is popular for camping, birdwatching and small boat fishing.

Join a guided kayaking trip with a commercial tour operator to paddle around the island and land on seemingly-remote beaches. Explore the short walking track to a rocky ridge to the northern side of the island. Spend the night bush camping and have the island all to yourself. Drop in a line and try your luck fishing for mackerel and other reef fish in this popular angling spot for small boats.
