Camp within Cape Tribulation, Daintree National Park at Noah Beach campground. The campground is in coastal lowland forest adjacent to Noah Beach.

Camping permits are required and fees apply. A camping tag with your booking number must be displayed at your camp site. Camp sites must be booked and paid for before travelling to the campground.

Park-specific conditions

The campground may be closed after heavy rain and throughout the wet season. The maximum length of stay at this campground is seven consecutive nights. The campground does not cater for caravans or larger style campervans—see the table below for detailed site information.

Noah Creek is a 1 km walk south along the beach from the campground. Crocodiles may be present, so stay away from the water's edge and be croc wise 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.
