Daintree and Cape Tribulation

The Cape Tribulation headland is where the Daintree Rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef, these UNESCO World Heritage Sites offer lots to see and do for visitors who love to reconnect with nature and explore further.

Daintree Rainforest

Immerse yourself in a real-life Jurassic Park where dinosaur-like birds still roam free. The lush rainforest thrives with wildlife, history and 1200 square kilometers of green wilderness, making it one of the most complex ecosystems in the world. Take me to the Daintree Rainforest.


The terrain is rugged and untouched making it perfect for spotting the elusive cassowary. You can even see fresh water turtles, forest dragons and the Ulysses butterflies.

Culture and heritage

The custodians of the region, the Kuku Yalanji people have called this area home for over 50,000 years. Today, descendants look after the land and practice traditional hunting and gathering methods. You can take a tour with local Indigenous guides to learn more about the rainforest and the reef and what it means to the traditional owners.

Things to do

Swing through the Daintree Rainforest canopy on a zipline, kayak along the clear protected waters or join a guided walk to get acquainted with peppermint stick insects and ancient plants and ferns. And then venture further beyond Cape Tribulation in a four-wheel-drive to discover the Bloomfield Falls and beyond.
