Must see · Lookout · Tourist Spot
The Mamu Tropical Skywalk allows visitors to explore the rainforest from the forest floor to the canopy, in comfort and safety.

The Skywalk passes through one of the largest-remaining, continuous stands of complex vine forest on basalt soils in the Wet Tropics.

Enjoy close-up views of rainforest plants, insects and birds, and take in sweeping vistas of World Heritage rainforest landscapes.

Information signs tell of the rainforest's complex web of life and the rich culture and history of the area.

The walkway features:

* An elevated walkway, 350 m long, rising from ground level to 15 m above the ground, meandering through the canopy of lush tropical rainforest

* A 10 m long cantilever and a 37 m high observation tower with two viewing decks, providing spectacular views over the North Johnstone River gorge and surrounding rainforest-clad peaks of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area

* More than 1100 m of forest walking tracks, connecting the elevated walkway, cantilever and tower

* Rest shelters presenting information about the history and heritage of Mamu rainforest.

  • We just loved this fabulous forest walk. It was so peaceful & serene. Walking so high up, rather than the forest floor, opened up a new forest experience with so many different flora & fauna to enjoy. We arrived at about 3pm..great time as there were no crowds..enjoyed it mostly alone which was fantastic. You must climb the tower, the views are breathtaking ☺
  • We thought this was a highlight of our trip. Not very physically demanding. Outstanding views. Beautiful rain forest. Reasonably priced. Genuinely friendly welcome.
