My second stop of the day was the Mamu Tropical skywalk. The Mamu skywalk is located in the Wooroonooran National Park about 90mins drive from Cairns off the Palmerston Highway. The Mamu tropical skywalk is a fairly new attraction that was built after cyclone Larry. Having recently had the cyclone go through cleared out a lot of the foliage and made it easier to build the skywalk whilst minimising the impact on the environment and clearing required.
The skywalk consists of both paths that enable you to explore the forest floor as well as elevated walkways, a cantilever and an observation tower that enable you to explore the upper levels of the forest foliage as well as the canopy.
It is fairly well designed with the paths being easy to navigate and guided audio tours that introduce you to different points of interest along the way.
The cantilever is a little freaky but certainly puts you amongst the canopy and keeps you surrounded by lots of greenery.
The view from the top of the observation tower is quite spectacular. There are creeks and waterways to be seen, a never ending sea of green forest foliage and the occasional wildlife. I saw some spectacular blue butterflies although unfortunately I was not quick enough to get a photograph of them.
Definitely worth doing, does require some walking but give some spectacular views.
