About Cape Tribulation
Cape Tribulation is a 2 hour drive north of Cairns, located in the Daintree Rainforest. Cape Trib, as most locals refer to it, is a popular holiday destination where you can escape the crowds and retreat to your private cabin in the magnificent rainforest.
Take one of Australia's last remaining car ferries over the Daintree River, and then travel through ancient world-heritage rainforest as you journey along Daintree's main road toward Cape Tribulation National Park. Cape Tribulation is just a small section of the Daintree National Park and where the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree rainforest meet, and the only place on earth where two World Heritage areas exist side by side.
Just south of Daintree's main road is one of Australia's last remaining car ferries, which you can take into an ancient world-heritage rainforest, the Cape Tribulation National Park. Cape Tribulation is just a small section of the Daintree National Park. The Daintree Cape Tribulation coast is where the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree rainforest meet, the only place on earth where two World Heritage areas exist side by side.
The road is sealed as far as Cape Tribulation. After crossing the Daintree ferry you will travel through lowland and tropical rainforest passing road junctions for Cape Kimberley and Cow Bay. There are some excellent coastal views and several tourist attractions. The road runs over several high capes and alongside attractive beaches. Camping spots and accommodation are available.
The drive over the Alexander range is a stunning scenic rainforest drive. The Alexandra Range Lookout offers excellent photo opportunities with views overlooking the Daintree River mouth, offshore islands and along the coast, from Wonga Beach to Port Douglas and Cairns.
The best part of the Cape Tribulation experience is the beaches. Most the beaches in the Daintree region are very similar - golden sand, calm blue water and mostly deserted. They are pristine.
Cape Tribulation Beach is the showcase beach of the area. Named by Captain Cook after the trials of becoming grounded here. The beach is protected by the Cape Tribulation headland, and the water is almost always calm and crystal clear. Tourist operators visit this beach every day of the week, so there are often many people here.
It's not surprising as this stretch of the coast is incredibly beautiful. It's one of the few places in Australia where the rainforest runs right down to the water. The Wet Tropical Rainforests are now protected by World Heritage Laws so tourists have the privilege of visiting unspoilt virgin rainforest and crystal clear jungle creeks.
Activities on offer include guided rainforest walks, four wheel drive safaris taking in local features, waterfalls, swimming holes, reef trips, mangrove and crocodile watching tours, ocean kayaking and horse trekking. Activities are limitless and you can be as energetic or as relaxed as you like.
Coopers Creek is a wilderness area where locals offer terrific day and night guided interpretive walks as well as mangrove discovery and croc search tours by boat.
Most of the rare and beautiful rainforest inhabitants are nocturnal, so it is advisable to join one of the night time wildlife excursions which offer spotlighting and local naturalist guides.
