It was under repair and I felt it was shorter with less to see. It won't take long to compleat and it takes you to the beach. So if you have time, it's alright to do.

This is a lovely boardwalk through the tropical forest that ends in a stretch of lonely white sand beach. The fan palms are enormous. The walk is 1-1.5kms and worth every step.

self guided walk through the edge of the rainforest, along a boardwalk so no damage to the undergrowth. Used by the tour parties to explain the different environments between the forest and the shoreline.

The board walk takes about 20 minutes to tour and the beautiful flora and fauna are well worth it. The diversity in this area is incredible and I could have spent hours here!

This is a great walk which is close to the Jungle Safari Park and shops. It is a easy walk and very beautiful. Take it slowly to fully appreciate the beauty.

Great walk through mangrove and rainforest. Very peaceful listening for birds but a bit dry at the time for water creatures.
