Rainforest Loop Walk

New South Wales

Meander through rich, remnant rainforest teeming with diversity on the Rainforest loop walk in Minnamurra Rainforest Centre. You’ll have a bird’s eye view over this primeval world as you wander the elevated walkway.

This easy, hour-long walk includes suspension bridges, viewing platforms and interpretive signs along the way. It’s a huge hit with kids, but the tranquil beauty of the subtropical, dry, riparian and temperate rainforest on display will appeal to all.

You’ll be impressed by the sheer variety of flora in this fragile ecosystem. Look out for bird’s nest ferns, strangler figs and colourful orchids.

If you’ve got the time and you’re keen to see more, why not add The Falls walk to your loop for a truly spectacular rainforest walking experience?

  • You can access The Falls walk from the Rainforest loop walk – allow an extra hour if you’d like to complete the Rainforest loop and The Falls walk.
  • Please remain on the walkway and paved tracks at all times.
  • There is no river access – this ensures pristine water quality for the park's aquatic life and downstream residents.

Comments

Easy walk all on boardwalks. Very popular during holiday periods. The loop walk is easy however the walk to the falls is mostly uphill and steep. There are seats along the way that are well used!

The rainforest area was beautiful and green, kept thinking I was in Tasmania. The suspension bridges are quite a source of fun for kids. The track is along a boardwalk and well signed. Don't forget to stop by the cafe near the information centre before or after the walk.
