Cape Tribulation & Bloomfield Track

Cape Tribulation

Stretching from the Mighty Daintree River in the south to the Bloomfield River in the north, the Cape Tribulation section of Daintree National Park is a popular four-wheel drive area for those who love the great outdoors.

The Bloomfield Track is considered the more scenic route from Cape Tribulation to Cooktown. This unsealed road has a number of water crossings as well as some steep ascents & descents, though nothing too extreme.

You’ll get to experience two of Australia’s most significant World Heritage sites – the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics. Both of which are known for their amazing biological diversity.

If you’re taking on the Bloomfield Track for the first time make sure you allow yourself a whole day to explore some of the stops along the way. The remote scenery can be quite breathtaking as you come across secluded beaches, Bloomfield Falls, steep mountain passes, creek crossings, and swimming holes along the way.

It's often closed during the wet season which runs from February to April so make sure you plan your trip accordingly.
