Cassowary’on Cape Tribulation rd

Along the 40 kilometre stretch of road from the Daintree ferry to Cape Tribulation you will travel through dense lowland rainforest, cross several coastal creeks and drive past some spectacular tropical beach’s  including Thornton’s and Coconut beach. The ancient rainforest that adjoins the road supports a large array of wildlife and it is best to be cautious of crossing Cassowary’s, snakes, Red-Legged Pademelons and even the odd turtle near coastal mangrove systems that adjoin the beach’s. The wildlife seen along this stretch of road is present all year long but seem more active during the early mornings and late afternoon.
