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.
Jindalba is the traditional Kuku Yalanji people's name for this area. This 700 metre rainforest boardwalk circuit winds up the hill and sometimes reaches four metres off the ground. It offers some elevated views of this lowland rainforest, including creeks, king ferns and fig trees. The information signs explain the complexities of rainforest structure and ecological processes - how different species have evolved to survive in the rainforest environment.
The Jindalba Boardwalk is on the Daintree/Cape Tribulation Road, midway between the Cape Kimberley and Cow Bay Roads (3-4 kilometres from either road and ten kilometres north of the ferry). The turnoff is well signposted.
