Noah Creek and Noah Valley Nature Reserve Location

The Noah Valley Rainforest Walking and Hiking Reserve is located 2 hours drive north of Cairns and 1 hour from Port Douglas. It’s just 20km north of the Daintree Ferry, in the centre of the Cape Tribulation Daintree Rainforest area, half way between Cow Bay and Cape Tribulation.

How To Get Here

Travel north from Cairns and Port Douglas, through the township of Mossman. You will need to take the Daintree Ferry, which operates 6am to midnight, 7 days a week and is well sign-posted for your convenience.

Once you have crossed the Daintree River on the ferry, it’s a scenic drive north, which will take you over the Alexandra Range and into the Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation, where the rainforest meets the reef.

Once you have spotted the coast, you are at the small village of Thornton Beach. The Noah Valley commences just north of here. Watch out for speed bumps and cassowary crossings.

You will need to make your way to the Manger’s quarters / Reception Office to obtain a gate key. The Reception Office is located immediately before the Noah Creek Bridge. 25km North of the ferry.

Off road access to both The Ridge House and The Lodge is via dirt track. 4WD is recommended. 2WD vehicles or low clearance vehicles may need to be left near the beginning of the tracks or at reception. Guests may then take a short hike and / or arrange for the Reserve Manager to lend assistance by ferrying in luggage. Please let us know of any special requirements and expected arrival time following booking.
