Walking Track Description
Another of the Daintree National Park’s most popular walks, the Dubuji Boardwalk is a cool, coastal mangrove swamp adjacent to the vast coast of Myall Beach, south of Cape Tribulation.
From the carpark, the boardwalk winds its way through the mangroves, shaded by it’s canopy of enormous fan palms, strangler figs and vines. It’s like something from another time. A muddy creek snakes through the mangroves, supporting a diverse variety of plants and animals, including bats (look for them nesting upside down in the trees) and brilliant tropical birds. Not to mention your (mandatory) tree snakes and spiders.
Peaceful and well signposted, the walk is a charming way to (safely) discover the complex functions of a tropical mangrove – its brilliant adaptation to salt water and the ecosystem it supports. Well worth a look.
