About Cape Tribulation
Cape Tribulation itself is a promontory of land jutting out into the Coral Sea off the northern coast of Queensland, Australia at a latitude of 16?. Its nearest city is Cairns, 140km to the south.
The Daintree Rainforest, encompassing the Cape Tribulation section of the Daintree National Park, is Australia’s largest remaining tropical lowland rainforest, and is believed to be the oldest rainforest anywhere in the world at over 100 million years of age. The rainforest eco-system and microclimate have enabled the survival of a concentration of primitive and ancient plant species that has no parallel on earth. The area is home to many species of native mammals, birds and butterflies, many of which are found nowhere else. In 1988 the area was awarded World Heritage listing for its ongoing protection.
Captain James Cook named Cape Tribulation, “because here began all our troubles”, when his ship ran aground on what is now known as Endeavour reef off the coast in 1770. But before the arrival of Europeans it was home to the Aboriginal people of the Kuku Yalanji tribe.
Cape Tribulation is now renowned as an outstanding area of natural beauty and eco-tourism. With its warm climate, lush tropical rainforest, white sand beaches, fringing reefs and close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef (another World Heritage Area) it is a unique and unspoilt destination for travellers of all kinds. It is one of only two tiny areas in the world where the rainforest meets the reef and the only place on earth where two world heritage sites border one another. A truly unique destination!
