Tropical Coast Top Ten #2: World Heritage Rainforest

The Tropical Coast is home to a vast area of World Heritage Listed Rainforest – from Bartle Frere, the tallest mountain in Queensland, down to sea level Rainforest at Bingil Bay.

Amazing flora and fauna, quiet mountain streams, freshwater swimming holes and majestic waterfalls.
The Tropical Coast Rainforest will leave you in awe.

The Ingan Tours guides are the Janbanbarra Jirrbal Rainforest people from the Davidson Valley region situated halfway between the cities of Cairns and Townsville and only 45 minutes south-west of Mission Beach. Their people have a deep relationship with the land and have always believed to have been a part of the land not apart from it. Experience and immerse yourself in their beliefs, culture, language and traditional lands by booking one of their authentic tours or cultural activities which are great for school excursions and cross cultural awareness or simply to enjoy the beauty of their local rainforest and culture.

The Mamu 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.
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.
