Located a few hours North of Cairns, and past the crocodile infested Daintree River, Cape Tribulation offers a few retreats in the heart of the rainforest with easy access to rainforest walks, wildlife and some pretty spectacular beaches. A small but perfectly formed village in the middle of the Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation is a must visit for those in Cairns. If you are looking for a little bit of peace and quiet after a few too many nights out at The Woolshed, or if you want to see a unique part of the East Coast and just escape for a little while then Cape Tribulation is the perfect place.
