Track description:

The Daintree Coast is popular among visitors for its reef and rainforest vistas. It is part of one of Australia's largest remaining stands of tropical rainforest with a last refuge for some unique plants and animals which have evolved here over many millions of years. The Daintree Coast is a small part of the Kuku Yalanji tribal area and has great spiritual and cultural significance for these people. There are a multitude of short walks in the area.

The Daintree Rescue Program funded the construction of the Dubuji Boardwalk to minimize tourism impacts on this sensitive area. The 1.2 kilometre track begins at the carpark and meanders through the vine forest, mangroves, sedge swamps and fan palms of this special forest. Spring fed creeks flow through area, which supports a wide diversity of plant and animal life. There are many viewing areas along the path, allowing you to stop, read the information signs and take in the surrounding beauty at this popular destination.

How to get there:

The Dubuji Boardwalk is on the Daintree/Cape Tribulation Road and abuts Myall Beach. The carpark is signposted, not far south of the Kulki/Cape Tribulation turn off.
