Cape Tribulation, Daintree National Park

Explore Cape Tribulation, Courtesy of Tourism Queensland

A ferry crossing to reach Cape Tribulation operates from 6am to midnight. Two-wheel drive access is possible, but high clearance is useful and caravans are not recommended on this narrow, winding road. There are four short boardwalks into the rainforest at Cape Tribulation. Walk quietly and try to spot rare animals such as Bennett’s tree-kangaroos, Daintree River ringtail possums and southern cassowaries. The Dubuji Trail commencing near the picnic area at Myall Beach, south of the cape, has signs about survival strategies used by rainforest plants and animals. Safety warnings: keep your distance from cassowaries, which are large, dangerous birds; stingers (box jellyfish) are present in tidal and coastal waters year-round; and saltwater crocodiles can lurk in all waterways.
