Myall Beach, Cape Tribulation

#6 of 8 in Parks in Cape Tribulation
Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Stroll down the wide strip of golden sand or look for a picnic site under a palm tree at Myall Beach, a place where rainforest meets the sea. A boardwalk through the mangroves leads to the beach. At low tide, you can swim in the rock pools or explore the Myall Creek mouth at the southernmost end, but watch for crocodiles. A headland at the northern end of the beach provides great views, while Mason Creek--a popular bird-watching nook in the mangroves--sits halfway to the headland. With our custom trip planner, Cape Tribulation attractions like Myall Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Easy to access. Wonderful beach to stroll along. Short walk to the lookout. In most places the rainforest comes right down to the beach, and there is also a mangrove area at one end of the beach.  more »
  • Our visit there was very special as there were no other footprints on the beach. We really felt as if we were on a remote island!  more »
  • Absolutely stunning beach! Free from piers, walkways or marinas - feels very untouched and natural. Best not to swim here as there are warning signs for crocodiles and stingers. We recommend staying at Safari Lodge (caravan park and cabins).
  • It is at this magnificent location that the end of the Great Barrier Reef Drive journey is achieved. To reach Myall Beach, park in the Kulki Boardwalk carpark and begin the walk over the ridge of the Cape Tribulation headland and down through the coastal forest. An exquisite sight awaits, the stunning Myall Beach. The Myall Beach walk joins the Kulki Boardwalk to the north and the Dubuki Boardwalk to the south, a distance of about 1.5km
