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!

We’ve done this walk twice now. Starts with a boardwalk then a beach walk (hard sand) then through mangrove area then along the sea edge through rocky outcrops and then another beach walk almost to Hull. Quite varied but not difficult.. quite a few steps...More
