Added by Madison Sankovitz

This scenic walk offers a rare opportunity to see the wet tropics rainforest from the high canopy.

The Mamu Tropical Skywalk offers a chance to walk high above the forest floor on a cantilever walkway that leads through the canopy. To see all the features of the skywalk requires a 2.5 km (round-trip) walk and takes at least an hour.

The Forest walk starts out by winding through the forest floor and serves the access path to the cantilever, skywalk, and observation tower. 

Just past the first rest shelter, a 40 m long elevated walkway climbs smoothly as the forest floor below disappears steeply, presenting you with your initial chance to experience the rainforest canopy.

From the second rest shelter, the Skywalk stretches for 350 m through the rainforest canopy. Be sure to keep your eyes open for birds, insects, and hundreds of different plants above and below you along the way.

The Observation Tower is near the fourth ground-level rest shelter at the end of the Forest Walk. Here you can climb several flights of stairs to gain an amazing view (37 m off the ground) of the rainforest.

Hike the Yangie Bay Trail in Coffin Bay National Park

Australia / Yangie Bay Carpark

This hike is short, but there are tons of opportunities to take in beautiful views of the bay and we saw tons of kangaroos! It was close to dusk, so this is a time when they're typically quite active.

This is one of the lesser known areas that has the conditions to allow thrombolites to thrive - a biofilm on the rocks that shows you what life looked like at the dawn of time billions of years ago.

Relax at Redgate Beach

The best times to go are either during a big swell so you can admire the waves crashing against the rocks, a bright sunny day so you can admire the red rocks and beautiful turquoise water, or at suns.
