Daintree | "Sanctuary", 163 Rykers Road, Cape Tribulation


Positioned high in the Daintree National park, time stands still as the captivating views take in the bay and headland of Cape Tribulation, and beyond to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Mackay Sand Cay, Undine Sand Cay and the surrounding Coral Reefs are visible on a clear day.

The Chris Van Dyke designed/built pole home is high above the tree-line on 2.1 hectares, enjoying a breeze and some of the best views of Cape Tribulation. There’s a romance in the choice of materials from the Cypress Pine flooring, timber cladding and the venetian style plaster of the walls, and the main hub of the property looks up to an impressive vaulted ceiling and double roof line, capturing yet more breeze and flooding the living area with light. There’s a large deck to the front and a terrace to the rear. The spacious master suite comes complete with ocean views, a large walk-in closet and an en suite shower room. There are a further 2 bedrooms and a shared bathroom on the same level. A fourth bedroom, laundry room and covered parking for several vehicles conveniently positioned below the main residence, and a private and substantial caretaker’s hut in the privacy of its own clearing at the bottom of the plot.

The property has been kept well presented, operating as a Rainforest getaway “Cape Tribulation Sanctuary” and has been well maintained by the current caretakers. Works include new roof and guttering in 2021, along with 12x new solar panels and battery system, and there’s a new petrol generator and 2x 22,000 ltr water tanks drawing pristine freshwater from a nearby creek.

The adjacent 23.99 ha property at 129 Rykers Road, by the same owner, is also for sale with Property Shop Agents Kurt and Matthew.
