Jindalba Boardwalk

Daintree National Park
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

The Jindalba (meaning ‘foot of the mountain’) boardwalk explores tropical lowland rainforest. Quiet walkers may be lucky enough to see a tree-kangaroo or cassowary. Boardwalk transitions to gravel path through lush rainforest in the Daintree. This is quite close to the Daintree Discovery Centre which is well worth a visit also.

Route/Trail notes

The short walk starts from the carpark and continues through the rainforest often transitioning between boardwalk and gravel path.

NOTE: There is a longer walk option here for a 2 hour return trip. Those keen for the boardwalk should always keep left to avoid accidentally heading on the longer route. 


No costs associated.

How can I find more info? Any guide books?


We did this purely to try and spot a cassowary. We weren't successful but we did spot the Ulysses and Birdwing butterflies as well as some beautiful Kingfishers.
