Getting to Cape Tribulation in the Daintree Rainforest



Cape Tribulation is 155 kilometres and about 2 hours and 15 minutes north of Cairns. You can enjoy the journey and stop at Port Douglas and Mossman Gorge on the way to Cape Tribulation.

You cross the Daintree River on a car ferry which costs $24 return for visitors in their own vehicle. The journey is well signposted. It is possible to purchase a 4 day pass at a discount rate.

The drive through the Daintree rainforest is very scenic and memorable.

OPTIONS

Cape Trib Connections
http://www.capetribconnections.com/overnight-tour.htm
This company comes up to Cape Tribulation from Cairns each day transporting people who have bought packages. If you book ahead this is possible - phone 07 4032 0500. Leaves Cairns at 7.30 am and the return journey incldues a Daintree river cruise, a guided rainforest walk and a swim at Mossman Gorge. They will pick you up from your Cairns/Port Douglas accommodation. They will drop you at PKs and then you should call us to come and get you.

Hiring a Car
There is a wide range of car rental companies in Cairns. In the 1980s and early 90s, you were not allowed to bring normal rental cars north of the Daintree River because the road was so bad. Now it is fully sealed all the way to Cape Tribulation, so you do not need to hire a 4 WD unless you intend to keep going north to Cooktown.

Cairns Direct - Car Rental and Accommodation will find you the best car rental rate for free. They also provide discount on regional tours in Cairns, as well as all your accommodation needs.

THE JOURNEY
Visit Port Douglas on the way to Cape Tribulation. If it is Sunday, visit the local market on the foreshore. Have lunch at one of the many restaurants and cafes at Port Douglas. We recommend ‘On the Inlet’. Stop in Mossman Gorge for a swim or do the Kuku Yalanji Dreamtime tour. Stop at the look out at the top of the Alexandra range for a spectacular view over the Daintree River, and then enjoy the scenic drive through the Daintree Rainforest

THE WET SEASON
During the wet season (February to May) the rivers may flood after heavy rainstorms.There are several causeways to cross and each causeway has a depth metre marker to indicate how much water is flowing over the causeway. You should be fine in a normal vehicle, as these causeways have recently been raised.

MOUNTAIN BIKES
We have two mountain bikes available for guest use, and this gives you access to most things in the Cape Tribulation area.

ON FOOT
It only takes 10 minutes to walk down to the beach from the Bed and Breakfast cottage if you take our shortcut. The cottage is within 10 minutes walking distance of three places to eat at Cape Tribulation
