Walk Wet Tropics

There are plenty of walking tracks to enjoy right across the Wet Tropics region, catering for every level of experience.

You can experience cool shaded walks under the rainforests canopy, wander around a peaceful lake, enjoy a stroll along a mangrove boardwalk, climb a mountain, visit a spectacular lookout or simply go for a beach walk.

Be aware: some walks may be closed during the year for safety or lack of access, particularly during the wet season. You can visit park alerts and campsite bookings on the links near the search button or find more information below the search form.
