Directions to property:

Cow Bay Homestay B&B is located 2 hours drive, ca 120km north of Cairns. Follow the signs out of Cairns to Port Douglas/Mossman. Once you are past Palm Cove the road winds very prettily along beaches offering spectacular views to the Coral Sea, Islands and fringing reefs. Please take note of the number of pull off bays, to let faster traffic go past. Drive past Port Douglas and through Mossman. Mossman is the commercial town of this area and still keeps the charming character of a small Queensland town. Drive north towards Cape Tribulation and after ca 30minutes there is the turn off to the Daintree River Ferry/ Cape Tribulation. The ferry runs continuously from 6 am to midnight, and the ticket can be purchased at the booth. After leaving the ferry you enter the green of the Rainforest. The road becomes very windy and offers a great view of the numerous tall trees and vines. After crossing the Alexandra Range you come into Cow Bay. Turn right to Cow Bay Beach. Ca.5 km you find the turn off to Wattle Close on the right side of the road. Cow Bay Beach is ca 800mtr down the road. Our sign “Cow Bay Homestay” is on the entry to the property and the house is on the right side from the parking area The attached map is hopefully handy for the last part of the trip.
