NOAH CREEK RAINFOREST RESERVE
In the heart of the Daintree Rainforest
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 heart of the Cape Tribulation Daintree Rainforest area, half way between Cow Bay and Cape Tribulation.
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 Creek Rainforest Reserve commences just north of here. Watch out for speed bumps and cassowary crossings.
You will need to make your way to the Reserve’s head quarters / Reception Office to obtain a gate key. The Reception Office is located on the left immediately before the Noah Creek Bridge. 25km North of the ferry.
Time to go off road!
Off road access to the reserve accommodation is via dirt track. 2WD vehicles are generally acceptable, drivers take care and drive to conditions as access can degrade over the wet. Low clearance or over size vehicles may need to be left near the beginning of the track or at reception. Guests can arrange for the Reserve staff to lend assistance by ferrying in luggage.
Please let us know of expected arrival time following booking.
