Swaying palm trees fringe the sands, seemingly holding back the rainforest as it tumbles down the slopes towards the ocean.

Soak up the sun and dig your toes into the sand at stunning Myall Beach, just south of the rocky headland of Cape Tribulation. Follow the Dubuji boardwalk to the beach then decide whether to walk for hours along deserted sands or lie back in the shade of swaying palms.
In summer, see pied imperial-pigeons migrating from New Guinea to breed and feed in the rainforest. During winter, scan the ocean waves for tell-tale spouts of migrating humpback whales.
This park is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, famed for its exceptional natural beauty, outstanding examples of the record of life, evolutionary history and remarkable diversity.
