Camping at Cape Tribulation is also available at the magnificently
located National Parks Noah Beach campground, information below is sourced
The National Parks Noah Beach campground is situated 8km south of Cape
Tribulation and has 17 campsites. It does not cater for caravans or
larger campervans as they will not fit in the sites. The camping area
may be closed after heavy rain and throughout the wet season. Fifty
metres from the beach, it is beneath the forest canopy, giving protection
from both the sea breeze and the harsh sun. Camping permits are required
and fees apply. The maximum stay is seven nights.
Some sites are for tents only, while others are specifically designed
for campervans. Toilets and tap water are provided but tap water should
be boiled prior to consumption. The toilet is a bio-cycle system and
unsuitable for disposal of foreign material or waste from chemical disposal
units. No fires are permitted so bring a fuel stove for cooking. All
rubbish must be removed. Biting insects may be present so remember to
bring insect repellent. The forest is very significant so please do
not damage any vegetation.
Noah Creek is a short 1km walk to the south along the beach from the
campground. Crocodiles may be present, so stay away from the water's
edge at all times.
Lace monitors (goannas) are often seen patrolling the campground for
food scraps. Do not feed these or any other native animals, and keep
food and rubbish secure on the goanna poles provided. Feeding wildlife
can cause unnatural population increases, illness and aggressive behaviour.
