An interesting walk with great views, through the rainforest, along the beach and on the boardwalk. A few steps to climb along the way but they were fine! Need to go on the low tide so you can walk along the beach.

Fantastic to see this track re-opened after the damage from Cyclone Yasi in 2011. The track is better than ever with fantastic boardwalks and interesting signage explaining the flora, fauna and nearby island identification. Amazing weather heightened my day!

Reasonable fitness required here - there are a few irregular sections along the middle of the trail where the boardwalk gives way to beaten earth, stones and tree roots. I am in recovery from a broken ankle and found it fairly tricky after the first...More
