Walking Track Description
As one drives north from Port Douglas to Cape Tribulation, just 12km after crossing the Daintree River is a peaceful rainforest boardwalk called Jindalba. Jindalba is the local Kuku Yalanji people’s name for this area.
Shady and lush, the boardwalk meanders around and across a small creek, far beneath a towering canopy of palms and ferns. The boardwalk is elevated at all times, and there are a variety of informative signs posted along the track describing the evolution of this rainforest.
There are also quite a few signs describing the most famous local fauna of the region, the Cassowary. Known to be occassionally aggresive if threatened, there are explicit instructions on how to retreat from a Cassowary if stalked by one of these huge, colourful birds.
