Cape Tribulation - where the Daintree rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef




We have a farm at Cape Tribulation, in the Daintree, two hours drive north of Cairns, Australia. Twenty five years ago, we decided to drop out of the rat-race, and move to Cape Tribulation, where we could grow our own food, and live a more sustainable lifestyle, in a beautiful tropical paradise. We bought some abandoned grazing land and developed a commercial mangosteen and exotic fruit orchard.

Cape Tribulation is located 2 hours north of Cairns in the Daintree Rainforest

We grow rare and exotic tropical fruit from the Amazon, South East Asia and the Caribbean. We have over 150 species from around the world growing at Cape Tribulation, and run our farm on permaculture principles, with help from WWOOFAS. Our farm is an organic farm, with mangosteens as our main commercial crop. We also sell dried soursop leaves.
