About
Take a walk in the clouds in Wooroonooran National Park just 15 minutes out of Innisfail. Elevated walkways, a cantilever, and observation tower offer visitors the exhilarating experience of being high in the rainforest canopy, along with providing spectacular panoramic views of World Heritage rainforest landscapes. The Mamu Tropical Skywalk allows visitors to explore the rainforest from the forest floor to the canopy, in comfort and safety. The Skywalk passes through one of the largest-remaining continuous stands of complex vine forest on basalt soils in the Wet Tropics. Enjoy close-up views of rainforest plants, insects and birds, and take in sweeping vistas. Information signs tell of the rainforest's complex web of life and the rich culture and history of the area.

There is a lot that’s done well here. Thoughtful design for visitors, including an audio guide (needs downloading to your phone at the ticket office), good signage and a colourful booklet tying in with numbered trees along the walk. There are 3 built structures; a cantilevered lookout, an elevated walkway, and a lookout tower, all giving different views of the rainforest below and the landscape around you. We spent about 2 hours here, and it was informative as well as beautiful. There are toilets and a water bottle refill station at the ticket office only. It cost $27 per adult which, in my opinion, is over-priced, considering how many parks, walks and waterfalls are accessible in the area for free. However, you can’t experience the rainforest from high up in other places, and you are paying for the infrastructure and staffing, so I do understand there needs to be a reasonable cost for this non-government park. However, we only saw 4 other people here, so I suspect they’ve gone too high with the entry price.

The staff and are very friendly upon arrival at this well designed sky walk. We had downloaded the app prior to our arrival as recommended by other travellers. This was a great tip as the WIFI in the rainforest is a bit hit and miss.
We had a great time with not many interactions with other visitors, which made it feel like we had the place to ourselves. The interactive guide was interesting and informative.
Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area or visiting nearby.

It was a long drive to get to the walk from the city but if you combine it with other activities in the area it is well worth doing and not too expensive.
The walk itself is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness and it was a great experience to see over the rainforest instead of looking up at the canopy.
The paths are well maintained with interesting information boards in places. A cafe or a coffee vending machine would complement the existing treats offered.

I'll be honest, this place wasn't for me. And unless you're into Ecology or never walked on a Skywalk before I wouldn't recommend it either.

I think it's over priced and it's just a bushwalk on private land (hence the entrance fee).

If you're solely going because (like me) you thought the focus would be more on the skywalk itself with wonderful views, don't. Your only view is at the end, on the tower. I will say it's exactly 100 stairs to the top and yes I counted them lol

Apart from the tower, it's all wheelchair accessible. Obviously don't go if you're scared of heights or even if you don't like see through stairs as 'the steps are like a grill like structure (see pics).

I was there an hour 20 and that was including a toilet trip, a chat with 2 staff members Claire & I've forgotten the other ladies name sorry (both lovely) and a few stops for photos. If you are a Flora and Fauna then this is the place for you.

You might be lucky enough to see the resident Cassowary.

Easy to enter, even for those in a wheelchair, and all paths are accessible on more or less level ground. The elevated walkways start at ground level and reach out over steeply descending hillside, affording spectacular views directly into the canopy. A smartphone app, downloadable on site, gives a spoken narration as you walk around the site.
More labelling of plants, big and small, would be helpful.
The staff were friendly and welcoming. Use the toilet before you start the walk!

We visited the Skywalk yesterday. We have been staying at Mission Beach for a few days and we were looking for an activity not too far away. The Skywalk looked nice, the drive was very pleasant driving through miles of cane fields. We were greeted by an indigenous gentleman on arrival and after a short chat we were directed along a walkway to Kristine who was very friendly and sold us tickets. The walking track meanders through a heavily forested area for 500 metres to a cantilever lookout over the Johnston river. We continued on to the canopy walk of some 350 metres. The views were fantastic and the pathways were wide and wheelchair friendly. Would recommend it to all age groups and fitness levels.

The entry here is discounted if you buy your ticket in conjunction with Paronella Park. Essentially you walk along a track through the rain forest and then onto a cantilever over a valley and then along a steel walkway high over the ground along the forest top and finally climb a very high tower for great views. It sounds ordinary but it is excellent. There is much interpretive material providing interesting information. The walk takes a good hour. It obviously involves heights and a few kilometres of walking.

Spectacular views and world heritage listed rainforest to wander through. Highly recommended experience as you walk through at both ground level and on boardwalks through the canopy. Has the highest free standing tower in Australia to view the surrounding mountain ranges, rivers and rainforest. Self guiding audio commentary comes with the entry fee. Audio also tells of the history of the area and how the park was created. Guide book lists the flora and fauna which is sign posted throughout. Suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. Take your time and rest on supplied park benches if you need to.

For most of our visit there were torrential downpours and low lying mist but we made the most of our time here. The paths were well signed and very well maintained. We enjoyed the lookouts although we could not see too much, but we did get short glimpses of the river. We saw quite a lot of different fungi, vegetation, several birds when the rain cleared for a short while and the highlight a praying mantis.

Stopped here on our way back from the Atherton Tablelands. The walk is fairly easy and the hardest part is the 100 steps up the lookout tower. Great views of the rainforest and valley. Easy to do with tweens and took about 1.5hrs. Very quiet on the day we visited, which was during school holidays. $88 for 2a + 2c. While we connected to their free wifi we couldn’t connect to the App Store to download the app. Suggest downloading it before you go as it provides a free audio tour along the way.
