North Queensland’s latest must-see tourist attraction — the $10 million Mamu Rainforest Canopy Walkway in the Wooroonooran National Park near Innisfail has recently opened.

The tree-top walkway, the largest project ever undertaken in a Queensland National Park, features a 2.2km forest walking track that links a 40m-high, 340m-long elevated walkway through the canopy with a 37m high observation tower.

The route uses the natural clearings created by Cyclone Larry, with cyclone debris mulched for use around the site.

The project is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the traditional land owners the Mamu People.

People from all over the world will get the chance to learn more about the Mamu, their country and culture in the world class educational and interpretive facility.

Queensland Premier Anna Bligh says it’s a tremendous shot in the arm for the tourism industry in north Queensland and a stunning way to celebrate 100 years of national parks in the state.
