    This is the only way to cross the river to get up to Cape Tribulation and don't they know it! It cost when we were there (July 2005) was AU$20 return. It only takes 5 minutes and can carry up to 16 cars across.
    It is quite exciting though, knowing about the crocodile infested waters below and that you're really heading into the rainforest proper.

    Getting to Cape Trib

    by Silvertraveller Updated Jan 20, 2007

    There is only one way to Cape Trib - by road.
    Tropic Explorer (07)40313460 do trips every day and also take in sights as the Marradja Boardwalk, Daintree River Cruise, Mossman Gorge and Port Douglas.
    Private Bus companies also do pick ups from Cairns airport to CT, Sunpalm(07)40842626 & Coral Coaches (07)40982800 for around $65pp one way.
    You can hire a car and drive up, its advisable to catch a cab into cairns and hire a car from there, you will save yourself at least $20 per day if you do this. The drive to Cape Trib takes about 3 hours, all you need to do is head north and when you see the sign for the Cape Tribulation Ferry, turn right ($16 return).
    Once you are in Cape Trib walking is suitable for all areas, you can join 'Marty' in his Cape shuttle which basicaly runs from Cape Trib to Coconut Beach. Make sure you stay in Cape Trib for at least 3 days - it takes one day to settle in, one day to see it and one day to enjoy it.

    Join a local tour

    Unless you hire a car, the best way to get to Cape Trib is to join a tour. I compared different tours and found that "Cape Trib Connections" was the cheapest.

    You can choose to get on the coach in either Cairns or Port Douglas. For me, I arrived in Cairns Airport on Day 1, took the free shuttle of Dougie Backpackers in Port Douglas to Port Douglas, stayed a night there and then got on the coach of Cape Trib Connections on Day 2; stayed 3 days there and arrived in Cairns on the way back. This saved my transportation between Cairns and Port Douglas!!!

    I chose to stay in PK's Jungle. The room was dark and not so clean, the bunk bed I slept in nearly collapsed, the kitchen was not clean and with very limited cooking utensils. Luckily the showers and the toilets were still fine. OK, it's the RAINFOREST. Don't expect so much.
