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. 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.
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.

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.

Many of the animals come alive at night and the region has many nocturnal activities, which are especially enjoyable in the summer months.
