house in the rain forest at Cape Tribulation

Cape Tribulation is situated at the end of the spectacularly scenic Great Barrier Reef Drive in the heart of the World Heritage listed Daintree National Park, 70 km. north of Port Douglas, 14 km. north of Cairns, and is an absolute must-do while you are in north Queensland. Door to door bus services drop off at most Cape Tribulation accommodation and any normal car can make the journey as the road north of the Daintree river is now sealed all the way to Cape Tribulation, and with the completion of the Cooper Creek bridge in 2011 we now have year-round all-weather access!

Our accommodation options include two bungalows with basic BBQ cooking facilities and the Daintree Jungle Treehouse, if you want your accommodation even more adventurous.
