Cape Tribulation Tours

Cape Tribulation is famous for its magnificent beaches, waterfalls, wildlife, sweeping landscapes, unsealed roads and magical rainforests. Whether visiting on a 1 day tour, or staying for a weekend, Lost In Australia promises an tropical adventure you wont forget.

Cape Tribulation, located in north Queensland’s Daintree National Park, is where the rainforest meets the reef. Nowhere else in the world can you find two World Heritage Listed areas laying side by side. Compared to other visitor hot spots in Queensland, Cape Tribulation is a place where you can experience the oldest rainforest in the world and explore the Great Barrier Reef all in one peaceful location away from the tourist track.

Cape Tribulation is located 110 kilometres north of Cairns and the sealed road along the coast offers stunning scenery while driving there. The area was named by the British Navigator Lt. James Cook on 10 June 1770 after his ship hit a reef as it passed over it. This caused James Cook to shy away from the coast moving into deeper water.

From here his ship, the HMS Endeavour, hit another reef almost sinking on what's now called the Endeavour Reef. It's through these trials that Cook named the area Cape Tribulation as it was where he says "began all our troubles".
