This is an easy, self guided walk, with concrete and raised platforms and suitable for wheelchairs, or small children.

This is a must do walk, as it takes in many different ecosystems, some rare plants and gives visitors a good overview of the Daintree Rainfroest.

There are a number of specialised guided tours that also use this walk, and having an expert along adds a new dimension to the plants and animals of the area.

You will need to allow at least an hour for the walk, not so much because it is long (it is only 1.2km) but because there is so much to see. I have personally done this walk dozens of times, and each time I see something new.
