From the single road, when driving to the north, the various side trachs to the right hand side go to beaches and boardwalks with easy access.

This is good for a quick stop. The beach is nice to see. The warnings do not encourage swimming. We arrived early in the morning when nobody was there yet. Kulki Lookout is a short walk away.

The weather wasn't the best on our visit but it was still a nice stroll and the surrounding scenery & birdlife noise made it a bit special.There are also several other walks you can do that lead to the beach as well. A nice Spot.

There is a short walk to the beach. There is an amazing view in store when you get there. The beach is surrounded by forest covered hills and mangrove swamps. It is a stunning location and a must see.

As with many of northern Queenslands tropical beaches Cape trib is lovely to walk on and enjoy the view. It's not suitable for swimming but is well worth a visit!

It's a long and not scenic drive. Don't go past the Daintree park...the drive from there down to Port Douglas is much better. The cape is just another beach/bay that doesn't merit the tough boring drive.
