Welcome to Cape Trib Farm
Cape Trib Farm is located in the Daintree Rainforest, adjacent to the Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage site. UNESCO describes the Wet Tropics as exhibiting “exceptional natural beauty, with superlative scenic features highlighted by extensive sweeping forest vistas, wild rivers, waterfalls, rugged gorges and coastal scenery. This is particularly apparent between the Daintree River and Cedar Bay, where exceptional coastal scenery combines tropical rainforest and white sandy beaches with fringing offshore coral reefs.”
Aside from being in a beautiful area, we are also more in tune to our natural environment as a result of being “off the grid” – a situation which sees us having to generate our own power and water supply. We have a solar system with 42 solar panels, inverter and battery bank, which supplies 85% of our electricity needs; a generator supplements the needs, running for two to three hours per day and using approximately 3 litres of diesel. Water comes from a natural spring and bore – water at its best! And with no curb-side collection, household waste is sorted for into recycling, composting and general waste to minimise trips to the waste transfer station.
Although we do not profess to be an organic farm, we aim to keep chemical application to a minimum – this is better for our environment, as well as the consumers of our fruit, and ultimately our viability. We are implementing a plan over the next five years to improve productivity of the orchard through innovative techniques such as trellising of trees, inter-planting of different varieties and canopy management.
What Our Customers Say About Us
Brilliant! Perfect place to relax and great location to enjoy rainforest and reef …
Merran and Jeremy were very welcoming bringing early morning tea and offering friendly advice about things to do in the local area. The tropical fruit provided for breakfast was delicious and we appreciated being able to use the kitchen, fridge, wifi and coffee making facilities. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The fruit farm was charming and peaceful. It’s the perfect place to relax but there’s also lots to do there; rafting to the reef, horse riding, rainforest walks, and a brilliant restaurant Cafe Whet. We loved it and wished we could stay longerRachel England
We are very grateful to have you and your family (including the dogs) guide our stay at Cape Tribulation. As Danes from the cold north we are very happy to have felt the warmth of your little community with so many stories told by everyone. We think it helps you all being kept tied together, and we wish you at the farm stay all the best in times to come.Solveig and Morten Denmark
Your farm is definitely one of the most beautiful places on our trip on the east coast and we are so happy to find this fantastic getaway. We loved every minute of our stay and the beautiful beach walks. Thanks for all the tips you gave us.Juliane and Maurice Germany
Comfortable, Clean, and Wow the Fruit!
I booked this stay partly because it is a tropical fruit farm and provides fruit each morning for breakfast. It did not disappoint. The breakfast was outstanding and it alone was worth the trip. The room was simple, but exceptionally clean and very comfortable. I stayed in mid November, when the daytime temperatures were hot and humid, but remarkably the nights in this farm stay were temperate enough that I didn’t even use the airy ceiling fan in the room. Jeremy and Merran are extremely friendly and helpful, and helped me plan my time there with great suggestions. I was only planning to stay one night, but stayed 2 nights and wished I could have stayed longer. One of the best places I’ve ever stayed at. I just hope I can return some day.Tom USA
Go, just go! OMG this place is heaven on a stick. We spent a glorious afternoon tasting 12 fruits we’d never heard of, let alone tasted before. Our hosts were pleasant and knowledgeable, the portions were plentiful and we had seconds twice. Our group asked many, many questions which were all fielded and answered with a smile. The walk around the orchard with the dogs at the end of the day gave us an unexpected connection to the fruit we’d just tasted. I wish these fruits were available commercially outside the region as I could easily become a black sapote addict. If you’re in the region, find the time, just go, you will never regret it.Emma Melbourne, VIC
We are sure this was the place where Eve gave the apple to Adam. Nowadays, she could do it here at the farm with 64 other exotic fruits. We loved everything about our stay here. Truly a garden of Eden!Sylvia and Thomas Germany
