Take a look at this map
The Mamu Canopy Tower walkway features:
- Easy to navigate elevated walkway accessible for wheelchairs and strollers, 350 m, long, rising from ground level to 15 m above the ground, meandering through the canopy of lush tropical rainforest
- a 10 m long cantilever and a 37 m high observation tower with two viewing decks, providing spectacular views over the North Johnstone River gorge and surrounding rainforest-clad peaks of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area
- more than 1100 m of forest walking tracks, connecting the elevated walkway, cantilever and tower
- Rest shelters presenting information about the history and heritage of Mamu rainforest.
Visiting the Cape Tribulation Daintree Rainforest exposes tourists to a wonderful outdoor experience.
The scenic views across the valleys and over the mountains will take your breath away and if you are a keen photographer you will be in your element with the lush greenery around attracting colourful birds and butterflies and other tropical rainforest animals.
This place is the Mecca for bird watchers, ornithologists and twitchers. Eubenangee Wetlands are one of the most important natural environment wetlands between Ingham and Cairns playing host to a huge variety of birds that migrate in and out thru the year.
The loop track around the wetlands are an easy 48 minutes hike and a total of 3 kilometers. There is a short 1.5 kilometer walking trail that takes you to the top of a grassy knoll where you will have 360 degree views around the wetlands where you can sit for hours on end just taking in the beautiful scenery or snapping photographs of the birds and butterflies that are drawn to this location. There are around over 190 bird species that frequent this location year round and it is especially popular with bird watchers during the dry season as this is when the lilies are in full bloom and the birds are attracted to their bright colours and pollens.
Eubenangee Wetlands Map
Just a short walk from the car park enables visitors to see the refreshing cascading waterfalls coming down over the huge granite rock boulders. Viewing platforms along the way make for great photographic opportunities.
There is an opportunity here to relax and take a refreshing dip in these crystal clear waters and take in the natural beauty that surrounds you. Lunch is included at Roscoe's Restaurant for an Italian style buffet with food for everyone!
Wooroonooran Safaris are a multi award winning Cairns day tour operator and are especially popular for the European multi-cultural market so be sure to make your booking early.

Babinda Boulders is a favourite recreation swimming hole for Cairns locals and tourists alike and an old spiritual site for Aboriginals. Whilst visiting this place your day tour leader will tell you about the "Legend of the Waters" in Devils Pool as told by Aboriginal elders. The scenery here is picture perfect and a great place to just sit and listen to the water as it cascades down the granite boulders. You can take an easy walk thru the rainforest pathways for approximately 1.30 kilometers or 30 minutes on the slightly undulating bitumen track to the two viewing platforms along the river banks. There are two walking trails one called The Devils Pool Walk and the other is the Wonga Track Rainforest Circuit and you will find some secluded swimming holes for you to enjoy the refreshing mountain water.
Johnstone River Crocodile Farm
Not just a few crocodiles but absolutely hundreds of crocodiles!
On display are the ferocious salt water crocodiles that are indigenous to the top end of Australia, Tropical North Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia. You will also see the more congenial freshwater crocodiles and you can distinguish the difference between the two species from not only their size but by their smaller more narrow jaws and the shape of their heads.
There are also some international attractions like the American Alligator which are much smaller and much less aggressive than our salties. At the Johnstone River Crocodile Farm you will see lots of other Australian animals like the rare and highly endangered Cassowary, and the Australian Dingo along with Emus and Kangaroos.
Whilst you are here you can try some Crocodile snacks or buy yourself a new wallet or Crocodile belt.

My wife and I travelled on this tour and I was so gratful to have a tour in our own language we could understand without having to interpret and understand what was being said. We didn't miss out on anything and saw the beautiful rainforests south of Cairns. Wooroonoonan Safaris have a range of different laguage tours daparting daily. Grazie!!

The guide on the safari was very informative. I took a dip in the water at the boudlers and enjoyed the natural rockslide in the rainforest at Josephine Falls. Lunch was great. Crocs were amazing at the farm.
Cao from Lakes District said on June 16, 2012
I was looking for a more personalised trip of the rainforest, and I certainly got it. There was only a few of us on the bus and the guide was very friendly. I felt very comfortable asking questions. I was pleasantly surprised with how delicious the lunch was. Traditional Italian food. Yummo. I would give this trip 9/10
Sara from United States said on April 30, 2012
Thanks for a great day out. Josephine was the most lovely place, getting to swim surrounded by rainforest. This tour was quite broad in allowing me to see the rainforest, crocodiles and wetlands. The crocodile farm was particularly cool, the crocodiles were a hell of a lot of bigger then our alligators back home.

SO so good :) I agree with all the comments below and I want to add that my guide was fantastic. It really is a beautiful area.

There were alot of wonderful things about this trip, but I particularly like the board walk above the rainforest canopy. Stunning views. The food was delicious, I didn't realise I would be getting to eat such yummy italian food made by a tradition italian family. Cheers for an incredible day.

My trip to Cairns was wonderful and my favorite day of all had to be with Wooroonooran safaris. I particularly liked the trip out the wetlands, it was nice to see a variety of animals from different eco systems. It was a small group with great staff. I couldn't have been happier.
