MASSAGE IN CAPE TRIBULATION
The 140 km. long Great Barrier Reef Drive takes you from the city to the jungle and when you reach your final destination at Cape Tribulation you'll want to take a rest and relax for a few days before heading back down the road.
And there is no better way to get relaxed than with a massage in a peaceful rain forest setting.
Massage in Cape Tribulation, relax in the rain forest
Massage in Cape Tribulation
Aruni has studied massage in her native Thailand and she brought her massage skills with her to Australia where she established her own massage business at Rainforest Hideaway in Cape Tribulation.
This is a unique place to relax, and iron out those muscles that have been busy travelling and exploring the Great Barrier Reef Drive.
Swedish / Oil Massage
If Thai massage sounds too strong or rigorous to you then oil massage might be a better choice for you.
In Western society this is often referred to as Swedish massage, but the techniques that a Swedish man collected to form Swedish massage mostly originate from Asia.
Massage can be done anywhere but the most effective and enjoyable is in a quiet peaceful location, and that is what you will find at Rainforest Hideaway.
Deep inside the oldest rain forest in the world sits this gazebo, adjoining a fish pond. The building is an open design so you can listen to the rain forest birds during your massage, and it has happened that a cassowary interrupted.
Most spas or massage shops kick you out on the street straight after your massage, here you are welcome to linger around the rain forest trails on our property or have a swim in our creek. If you come together with someone else they can explore the trail while they wait for you..
Traditional Thai massage is a system of massage, stretching and manipulation, developed in Thailand thousands of years ago and influenced by traditional medicine from India and China, as well as by yoga, that is why it is also informally known as "yoga for the lazy".
In Thai massage oil is rarely used, and the receiver is fully clothed in light loose fitting clothing, and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor.
Thai massage is powerful and rigorous, and goes deeper than the western style oil massage, hands, elbows, knees, and body weight are used for effective strong massage techniques.

WHAT WILL YOU SEE ON THE GREAT BARRIER REEF DRIVE?
THE GREAT BARRIER REEF!
This drive takes you along the edge of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, but make sure you hop on a boat from Port Douglas or Cape Tribulation too so you can immerse yourself in this amazing world of wild coloured coral and tropical fish.
THE DAINTREE RAIN FOREST!
While you can see some rain forest in various places along the drive you definitely have to cross the Daintree river to see the real ancient Daintree rain forest, do some of the National Park board walks, swim in the pristine creeks, or book a guided tour in Cape Tribulation to learn more about it.
You can see cassowaries in zoos around the world but meeting a cassowary in the wild is an experience not to be forgotten. This ancient flightless bird has been walking the planet ever since all continents were still joined together as one and dinosaurs roamed the earth. The cassowary is listed as endangered but has been making a good comeback, and there is a fair chance you will see one in the Daintree if you spend a few days there.
