Where Rainforest meets Reef

Cape Tribulation is the village where two spectacular World Heritage sites meet, the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef. Located on the northern side of the Daintree River, at the end of the sealed road, here you can position yourself between the tumbling rainforest and glistening corals.

 

Cape Tribulation activities

The Daintree Rainforest is a world untouched by the world of urban development, noise and air pollution. Breathe in the purity and scent of the rainforest and explore your natural surroundings. Cape Tribulation has so many activities on offer including bush walking, kayaking, horse riding treks, diving and snorkelling, exotic fruit tastings, river cruises, zip lining through the rainforest canopy and even 4WD safaris.
Take a break from the hustle of the city and wake up to the sounds of the Daintree Rainforest. A range of Cape Tribulation accommodation is available including Cape Tribulation hotel, lodge, backpacker, B&B and camping grounds.
Around 17,000 hectares between Daintree River and Cape Tribulation is declared National Park and much of the area is also World Heritage listed to ensure protection of the rainforests which have been evolving for the past 135 million years. Plants representing all stages of the evolution over the last 400 million years are found here.

Under the forest canopy a menagerie of animal life includes many varieties of insects, birds, over seventy identified mammals, reptiles and amphibians. The Cape Tribulation region is home to over 3,000 plant species including trees, vines, palms, ferns, epiphytes, as well as the world’s largest and smallest tree ferns and cycads. Unknown plants and animal species are still being discovered. Many of the animals come alive at night and the region has many nocturnal activities, which are especially enjoyable in the summer months.

Getting to Cape Tribulation

Drive north 45 minutes from Port Douglas and arrive at the only cable ferry in tropical Australia, the Daintree Ferry, which provides the southern access into the lowland Daintree Rainforest.

The sealed road north of the Daintree River meanders through the lush Daintree Rainforest covered Alexandra Range, to spectacular lookout points and glorious tropical beaches. It is here that the rainforest meets the reef.

There are a range of Cape Tribulation tours that leave Port Douglas every day, which will take you to some of the hidden treasures the Daintree Rainforest holds. If you are a self-drive visitor to Cape Tribulation you will find many local tour options that take you where your hire car cannot!

The sealed road ends at Cape Tribulation and the 4WD track through to Bloomfield Falls and further north to Cooktown begins. Go on an adventure through the rugged rainforest terrain with eco-accredited 4WD tours and explore the pristine beaches, swimming holes and ancient rainforest plants that only this very unique piece of nature can provide.

No trip to the tropical north is complete without visiting this natural wonderland.
