Necessities of Cape Trib
A medium sized bag is OK, leave your big bag at Cairns if you are coming up A poncho can be handy although it gets so steamy in summer your better off just wearing your bikini or boardies in the rain. Closed shoes are important to do most activities. A torch is important as there are no street lights and it can be dark walking to the beach at night. There is a pharmacy in the village for any personal items required during your stay.
Cape Tribulation - Daintree Rainforest
"Cape Tribulation Lookout"
Right at the end of Cape Trib you will find the most amazing view of the bay and the rainforest meeting the ocean. This is one of the only places in the world where the forest reaches right into the ocean.
The turquoise water is very tempting, but dont be fooled, it contains various dangers and be sure to ask the locals, where it is safe to swim.
Everywhere you go in Cappe Tribulation you find beautiful nature whether it is butterflies, flowers, or plants. The strong colours attract different insects and animals and from time to time when you sitt still and observe you might just see some of the famous wildlife that the Daintree rainforest is known for.
Staying in Cape Trib might test your fobias as there are everything from spiders to giant toads, crocs and bugs. It can be very charming though to find a tiny lizzard in you bedroom...a rainforest watchdog.
"Beaches at Cape Trib"
Around Cape Tribulation there are several beaches. Cape Tribulation, Myall beach, and Coconut beach. These all look like something out of a movie and all you can think about is to run into the water for a refreshing swim. Coconut beach is safe to walk along but dont cross the creek, Myall creek, if you want to get to the other side (Myall beach) because it is inhabited by crocodiles. Also the Cape Trib beach might have warning signs up during some season due to crocs so beware.
"A Beautiful Place"
Cape Tribulation was named by Captain Cook in the late 1700s, 'Tribulation' coming from the troubles he had when his ship hit the Endeavour Reef.
It's one of the few places in the world where the rainforest meets the ocean.
