With 2.5km of forest walkways, a cantilevered viewing platform and a 37-meter high observation tower, the Mamu Tropical Skywalk is for many visitors the highlight of the Wooroonooran National Park. Built in 2006, the easily accessible attraction offers the chance to discover the rainforest from the ground up, following the information boards through the dense jungle and listening to audio commentary on the elevated walkway.
As well as enjoying dramatic views over the North Johnstone River gorge from the observation tower, visitors have the chance to get up close to the park’s wildlife. This is one of few remaining rainforests in the world growing on basalt soils and its unique ecosystem is home to an abundance of forest dragons, cassowary, birds and butterflies, as well as rare animals like musky rat-kangaroos and white-tailed rats, and a huge variety of wildflowers and trees.
The Mamu Tropical Skywalk is located in the Palmerston Section of the Wooroonooran National Park in Queensland and is open daily from 9.30am-5.30pm. Admission is AU$20 for adults, AU$10 for children.
