This scenic walk offers a rare opportunity to see the wet tropics rainforest from the high canopy.

The Mamu Tropical Skywalk offers a chance to walk high above the forest floor on a cantilever walkway that leads through the canopy. To see all the features of the skywalk requires a 2.5 km (round-trip) walk and takes at least an hour.

The Forest walk starts out by winding through the forest floor and serves the access path to the cantilever, skywalk, and observation tower. 

Just past the first rest shelter, a 40 m long elevated walkway climbs smoothly as the forest floor below disappears steeply, presenting you with your initial chance to experience the rainforest canopy.

From the second rest shelter, the Skywalk stretches for 350 m through the rainforest canopy. Be sure to keep your eyes open for birds, insects, and hundreds of different plants above and below you along the way.

The Observation Tower is near the fourth ground-level rest shelter at the end of the Forest Walk. Here you can climb several flights of stairs to gain an amazing view (37 m off the ground) of the rainforest.
