Spend the School Holidays in Cape Tribulation

We might be biased but we think that Cape Tribulation is the perfect spot to spend the school holidays with the family. The school holidays are the perfect time to travel north and explore Tropical North Queensland (especially if you are planning to holiday here this year). We like to think of Cape Trib as natures playground, and there is no shortage of activities that will keep all of the family happy. We guarantee that the kids won’t even miss the fact that there is no phone reception.


Here are is our list of the top reasons to spend the school holidays in Cape Tribulation:

Situated where the Daintree Rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef, Cape Tribulation is not short on natural wonders. You can easily spend an entire day exploring along Cape Tribulation Beach, swimming at Emmagen Creek or the waterhole at Mason’s and taking a stroll along Dubuji or Marrdja Boardwalks.

One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, a visit to Cape Tribulation wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. Hop aboard one of the daily tours run by Ocean Safari and take the opportunity of a lifetime to experience the largest coral reef system on earth.


Spot some of the locals

No trip to the Daintree Rainforest is complete without spotting some of the local wildlife. In Cape Tribulation, you have the opportunity to spot a brush turkey, goanna, Boyd’s forest dragon and even a cassowary before breakfast! There is also a plethora of birds and insects that are easy to spot so keep your eyes peeled as you walk around. Hop onto one of the Cooper Creek or Daintree River crocodile tours to spot the world’s largest reptile in its natural habitat.


Join a fun organised activity

If the thought of spending an extended period of time together as a family has you feeling nervous don’t worry. We promise you won’t be able to get cabin fever up here. Sign the family up for one of the many guided tours available to explore more of the area. D’Arcy of the Daintree run fun half and full-day tours up the Bloomfield Track to Wujal Wujal and Cooktown. Our Beach Horse Ride allows you to take in the majestic Myall Beach on horseback.


We hope that this list will give you the inspiration that you need to book your next family holiday to Cape Tribulation and the Daintree. We guarantee that you’ll have the best time ever spending the school holidays in Cape Trib.
