In the northern part of the Daintree forest (north Queensland), we find virtually uninhabited beaches and unparalleled splendor. Cape Tribulation Beach is one of them: although it is found on the maps, this place is not a city (you can find small inns or small shops, mostly) and off-road must venture into the jungle to reach the coast surrounded that is surrounded by hills. Unfortunately this lovely serene placed has been interrupted by the garbage left behind by tourists, that come with little regard for animal and plant species abundant in the place (frogs, fish, bats, lizards, cassowaries, pelicans ...).
Located 150 kilometers north of the city of Cairns, in northern Queensland state, this place belongs to the Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Site since 1998. It is a very special place, because the so-called "rainforest" meets the Great Barrier Reef, both declared by UNESCO World Heritage Site, as Australians say, "Where rainforest meets reef ". The forests in this area have plants and trees dating back more than a century and venturing into the jungle to see flora and fauna in its purest form is truly impressive. There are several signposted walking tours around Cape Tribulation. I recomment you get to Cape Tribulation Lookout, a viewpoint where you see the vastness of the place and its beach. You can hire day trips from Cairns to Cape Tribulation, or if you have time, you can stay there a few days and even enjoy a little dive in the area. My experience was the day trip from Cairns. This is particularly worthwhile if you like the lush vegetation of the rainforest. Note that from Cairns to Sydne the landscape is not the same.
