Cape Tribulation

The last place I want to share with you during my visit to Cairns and its region with the family is the following: Cape Tribulation.

Cape Tribulation 1

Cape Tribulation is a haven of peace where beaches and tropical forest meet. The site is located between two UNESCO World Heritage sites: the Daintree Forest and the Great Barrier Reef.

If you want to get to the nearest tropical forest, I suggest you take a tour of the following footpaths: Jindalba Boardwalk, Marrdja Boardwalk, Dubji Boardwalk. With a little bit of luck, you’ll even be able to see cassowaries, a big black bird that will remind you of an emu. The species was classified as endangered a few years ago. Today, the population is about 2,500 individuals. So it’s quite rare to see them. That day, we were lucky because we were able to see a male in the company of his baby.

After walking the paths in the heart of the tropical nature that characterizes the region so much, you can go to one of my favorite beaches in the region: Cow Bay (see the article The 10 most beautiful beaches in Cairns).

In addition to enjoying the magnificent panorama of this beach, you can swing at the end of a rope to make some nice photos.

After swinging for a few hours (yes, hours!), head back to Cape Tribulation Beach. Take the Kulki landscaped trail to get to the point of view that will allow you to enjoy the beach and the bay.
