Rainforest Hideaway is situated right at the end of
the Great Barrier
Reef Drive, this is a 140 km. long scenic drive from Cairns
to Cape Tribulation.
From Cairns: find Sheridan Street,
the main road that goes through all of Cairns, and start heading
north, Sheridan St. becomes the Cook Highway or Great Barrier Reef
From Cairns airport or Port Douglas: turn right
when you get to the highway and head north.
On the north side of Cairns you will go through at least a dozen
roundabouts, if you are new to Australia remember that traffic entering
the roundabout gives way to traffic that is already on the roundabout.
On the first few roundabouts follow the signs for Mossman and Port
Douglas, and from the Smithfield roundabout it gets even easier,
simply follow the brown coconut signs all the way to Cape Tribulation.
After about one hour from Cairns you will pass Port
Douglas on your right hand side, and another 15 minutes or so later
you will pass through Mossman.
Keep heading north after Mossman and following the signs to Cape
Tribulation. After 20 minutes or so you will see the sign below,
indicating you will need to turn right to the ferry;
On the highway about 25km. north of Mossman turn right at
Cross the Daintree river on this ferry,
it runs continuously from 6 am till midnight.
Once you are across the Daintree river it is another
36km. to Cape Tribulation, due to the speed limits and winding roads
this can take you close to an hour, even without stops. Keep your
speed down to save the wildlife, especially the cassowary.
On arrival in Cape Tribulation you will first see the signs for
the Cape Trib shop/info centre, and 500 metre further the sign "Welcome
to Cape Tribulation".
About 200 metres past this welcome sign turn left into Camelot Close,
there is a sign on the corner pointing to Rainforest Hideaway.
If you arrive at night keep an eye out for the Ferntree Resort sign,
this is the only one lit up on this corner.
Proceed up Camelot Close past the Dragonfly and Ferntree until you
see the sign Rainforest Hideaway and the frog mailbox on your left.
This sign will tell you that you have arrived in Cape Tribulation.
Because there is no main street with shops some people drive
200 metres further you will see this sign on your left on
the corner of Camelot Close, at night the Ferntree sign next
to this is lit up.
Turn left here.
Proceed up Camelot Close until you see this mailbox on your
