Getting there

Travel 104 km north of Cairns on the Captain Cook Highway to the Daintree River crossing. The ferry operates 6.00 am–midnight every day with a small fee for a return journey (which you don't need to take on the same day). Beyond the ferry, keep following Cape Tribulation Road for 35km, the car park will then be on your right. It's well signed so you shouldn't miss it.

Conventional two-wheel-drive vehicle access is possible as far as Cape Tribulation, although high clearance is useful and caravans are not recommended. The road through this section of the park is narrow and winding. Drivers should keep left and watch for wildlife, particularly cassowaries. 



Route/Trail notes

This boardwalk travels over swamp and mangroves before winding back through the rainforest. Great for wildlife photographers as there's an abundance of birdlife as well as crabs, mudskippers and crocs in the nearby river.

Very easy circuit, popular with tour companies.

Wear mosquito repellent. 


The Daintree ferry has a cost of around $24 for a conventional vehicle return.

Nice, quite walk around the ever so old trees. Flat with plenty of parking.

This was a really fun little walk and it was a good break from the long, winding drive from Cairns to Cape Trib. Spotted alot of little critters and snapped some great pics of birds/butterflies etc. We came at a good time as 3 bus loads of tour groups were just packing up. It must be very popular in the high season.
