COME TO CAPE TRIBULATION and stay with us in our bed and breakfast
cottage accommodation, designed for couples, on the edge of our
World Heritage Daintree Rainforest - two very private, high-set,
pole-framed timber cottages, each with an ensuite, balcony and
a stunning view to Mt Sorrow. Watch the slide show
below for the guided tour, or view our
photo album online
You can really relax on the bed and breakfast balcony; listen
to the water flowing over the rapids in the creek; enjoy an exotic
tropical fruit breakfast based around
our own organic farm produce; and walk in our rainforest and along
the beach at Cape Tribulation.
Cape Tribulation does NOT receive mobile phone coverage, so you
can truly escape. We are committed to environmental conservation:
we can offer you solar power; your own private World Heritage
Daintree Rainforest to explore; an organic permaculture orchard;
and genuine local hospitality.
We invite you to come and share our lifestyle at Cape Tribulation
for a short time, staying in our bed and breakfast accommodation.You

'A Special Place'.
WORLD HERITAGE DAINTREE RAINFORESTIN OUR OWN BACKYARD Part of our property (approximately 8 acres/3 hectares)
has been included inside the boundary of the World
Heritage Daintree Rainforest. It is very rare to have private
property included within the boundaries - less than 1%.
means our rainforest is protected for future generations, and
is considered to be of very high quality. You are welcome to walk
through this forest following our marked trail. You will meet
no other tourists, as it is privately owned land.
Both cottages are right at the edge of the Daintree rainforest,
and you will be interacting with the wildlife that passes through.
Guests have been able to watch Cassowaries
wander down the creek while eating their breakfast on the balcony.
There will be insects and spiders in the vicinity, but the cottage
has insect screensto protect you.
OUR ELECTRICITY COMES FROM
SOLAR POWER The Daintree region north of the river does NOT have
mains electrical power. This has been a deliberate government
decision to limit development in the area. Local landholders have
been subsidised to enable them to set up solar systems instead.
The resorts rely on trucks bringing in diesel fuel to power large
generators, while bed and breakfast operators use alternative
We offer you a sustainable and environmentally-friendly experience
of living with solar power, which reduces
YOUR impact on the area. This means that you need to be aware
of how you use electricity, and we ask that you turn off the lights
in the B&B when you leave so that you do not flatten the batteries.
We can NOT offer you airconditioning or electric hair dryers in
the bed and breakfast. If you feel that you need these luxuries,
then you should stay in resort style accommodation. We do provide
a fan if needed.
have designed both bed and breakfast cottages in a high-set Queenslander
style to take advantage of the natural breezes. The windows in
the B&B are floor to ceiling louvres to enable the breeze
to flow right through the room and We have built light timber
walls which do not store heat.
And best of all, we have built both bed and breakfast cottages
so that they extends right up to the creek, and when the creek
is flowing, the cool air provides a wonderful natural air conditioning
system. So you are not living in a concrete box which needs to
We recommend that you plan to stay at Cape Tribulation for at
least 3-4 days. There is a lot to do and Cape Tribulation is also
a great place to unwind and just relax. If you love the rainforest,

yourselves environmentally aware, we'd love to have you as our

Each cottage is designed to accommodate two adults
comfortably. It is possible to book one extra adult or one/two
children, but the space is designed for two people and it does
become a little cramped. Two children would need to share the
double folding futon sofa bed. We regret that we do not take children
under 6 years of age.
