Living in Cape Tribulation:
Cape Tribulation is the epitome of a tropical paradise: serene and secluded, lush and vibrant, and with ample space to kick back, relax and enjoy a refreshing swim after a toasty day’s rainforest exploring.

This extraordinarily pretty stretch of the Daintree National Park with its dramatic headland and lush, unspoiled rainforest makes for some exquisite surroundings.

The remote headland of Cape Tribulation is where two UNESCO World Heritage Sites meet – the Wet Tropics Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.

Australia's richest diversity of flora and fauna is found in this region.
