Cape Tribulation: The Only Place in the World…

Cape Tribulation in Tropical North Queensland is the only place in the world where two World Heritage Listed Sites collide. It’s not every day you get to visit a place that is truly the only kind in its category, so walking along the beach at “Cape Trib” was pretty special.

The whole “Australia is TEEMING with deadly animals” cliche does grate on my nerves, but TNQ is one of the few destinations which has actually earned this reputation. The beach had a sign warning of crocodiles, and another tin box with a bottle of vinegar in case of jellyfish stings.

Just because the water looks safe, don’t EVER swim in crocodile waters! I’ve heard too many sad stories from guides in the area. A little common sense goes a long way in Australia!

We also visited Mt Alexandra Lookout within Cape Tribulation National Park, which has stunning views over the rainforest and across to the ocean – and the Great Barrier Reef. We visited Cape Tribulation as part of our day tour with Discovery Tours Australia – I’d highly recommend this tour company for the value of the day ( we saw so many destinations!), the friendly & knowledgeable tour guide, Jean, and the professionalism of the company.
