Mamu Tropical Skywalk

Take a walk in the clouds in Wooroonooran National Park just 15 minutes out of Innisfail. Elevated walkways, a cantilever, and observation tower offer visitors the exhilarating experience of being high in the rainforest canopy, along with providing spectacular panoramic views of World Heritage rainforest landscapes. 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. Information signs tell of the rainforest's complex web of life and the rich culture and history of the area.

This is definitely worth a visit. The elevated walkway and observation tower gives you a very different view of the Queensland rainforest. Instead of being on the ground looking up, you are in the forest canopy itself, looking across at treetops and vines and stunning...MoreThank you very much for your positive review! Really pleased to read that you enjoyed your time with us. Have a great day!
