Because you're way out in the jungle does not mean you

Simply drive down Camelot Close to the main road, turn

daily, with tapas in between meal times.
The bar is always a pleasant and relaxed place for
a drink and there is a small cinema upstairs with only 25 seats which
are all beanbags and recliners, probably the comfiest cinema in Australia,
and you can take your beer in to the cinema too!

The nearest place to Rainforest Hideaway is Cassowary
cafe, just down the street, pizza, pasta, some other meals, and takeaways
can be found here.
The best place in Cape Tribulation is Whet, as mentioned above.
Another good value choice is the Beachhouse, five kilometres up the
main (unsealed) road, the restaurant is very close to the beach, but
