Destination Daintree

Cape Trib Farmstay

Cape Trib Farm is the perfect base for exploring the Daintree. We are the closest place to Cape Tribulation (Kulki) Beach, and 5-10 minutes walk to beaches, restaurants and adventure activities. The property fronts Myall Beach with access to North Myall and fantastic views from “the Cape”. 

Nestled among 30 acres of orchard and 50 acres of rainforest, and adjoining the World Heritage Wet Tropics, this is a natural retreat for eco-travellers, bird watchers, animal/nature lovers and guests who seek a quiet environment in which to relax. We strive for sustainable living practices, and being totally “off-the-grid”, this includes 90+% of our energy needs coming from a solar/battery power system. 

The farmhouse and five cabins overlook tropical fruit orchards and Mount Sorrow. Each cabin has an en suite bathroom and verandah. Guests are welcome to wander through the orchards, and every day for breakfast guests enjoy a bowl of the fresh fruit in season and homemade jams. 

The farmhouse is the central meeting place and is available for guests to use: enjoy a cup of tea or freshly ground coffee, and fruit on the verandah; prepare a meal in the farmhouse kitchen, on the BBQ or in the wood fired pizza oven; select a book from our library; or play a boardgame. If you must catch up with family or friends, free Wi-fi is available at the farmhouse (though note the satellite service is not suited for video streaming or online games!). 

There are more than 70 different species of fruit trees on Cape Trib Farm from the Pacific, South-East Asia, Central and South America, Africa and the Caribbean. The main commercial crops are Durian, Mangosteen, Rambutan, Breadfruit; other favourites include Duku-Langsat, Abiu, Mamey Sapote and Jakfruit. 

Cape Trib Farm has been in the family for over 40 years. Now in the second generation, your hosts Jeremy & Merran, are among the longer-term residents of Cape Tribulation and replete with a wealth of local knowledge they can assist you in enjoying the best of the Daintree.
