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.

Beyond the ferry, 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.

Cape Tribulation

Route/Trail notes:

This is a very short and somewhat steep paved walk to a look out over the beach with the rainforest as a backdrop. There are options to walk onto the beach from this path.

Permits/Costs:

None.

WARNING: 'Crocodiles abound' here, so be very carefull in this area.

Comments

For a longer walk, follow the signs in the carpark for Cape Tribulation. A short track leads to steps, up then down, which bring you to Myall Beach. You can walk all the way along the beach (wading Mason's Creek) to PK's/Ocean Safari, which are acessed via a small but worthwhile boardwalk through the mangroves. Alternatively, keep walking along the beach and join the Dubuji Boardwalk.

Nice final walk after a long drive from Cairns. I wish we had more time to go for a swim here.

Note: There are signs everywhere for stingers along the beach.

My first full day in Australia and I come across this wonderful place where the rainforest meets the ocean and I wonder why, with all this beach, is nobody in the water? Naively, at that time, I had no appreciation of what lurks in the water around here, till I saw the sign 'crocodiles abound here'!
