Cairns has multiple rainforest regions, understanding the difference is important. Travelling 2 to 2.5 hours north of Cairns is the Daintree Rainforest, often called Cape Tribulation.

Daintree National Park is the entire rainforest region that is World Heritage listed and is the worlds oldest continuous living rainforest. This is the only location in the world where 2 world heritage listed sights meet. This is where the slogan "where the rainforest meets the reef" is referring to. Cape Tribulation is a beach location in the Daintree Rainforest that has many accommodation choices and activities on offer.

Tours depart between 0700 and 0730 and return between 1800 to 1900. You can always consider staying 1 or more nights to really relax and enjoy this amazing region. Overnight Cape Tribulation Packages can include activities such as Jungle Surfing, Beach Horse Rides, Guided Night Walks or Sea Kayaking.
