NOAH BEACH, CAPE TRIBU­LA­TION, QLD

Australian Traveller - - The 100 -

To re­ally ex­pe­ri­ence where the rain­for­est meets the sea, the best thing to do is to ac­tu­ally stay within this renowned bound­ary along the spec­tac­u­lar coast­line of Cape Tribu­la­tion. The camp­site at Noah Beach is just 50 me­tres from the white sands bor­der­ing the Coral Sea, set within the fringes of the Dain­tree Rain­for­est eight kilo­me­tres south of Cape Tribu­la­tion vil­lage. From here you can sim­ply walk the stretch of beach with palms and rain­for­est creep­ers hang­ing over the sand; if you’re lucky you may see a cas­sowary tak­ing a stroll too. Swim­ming in the sea is prob­a­bly not the best idea ow­ing to stingers and rav­en­ous crocs; you’re far bet­ter off ex­plor­ing the flora and fauna of the old­est rain­for­est on the planet at the Dain­tree Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre.
