Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We did the longer walk, about 3kms. It is fairly steep in places, but beautiful to see. Lots of native birds if you look closely and listen. The path has reflective markers every 10 to 15 meters that you need to keep an eye out for, as the trail is not particularly clear otherwise, but we had no trouble finding those markers. It took us about an hour and fifteen mins to complete, you could do it quicker, but then you would miss out on seeing everything.

The best of the short walks in the Daintree/Cape Tribulation region. I felt the Jindalba walk was magical experience compared to the other boardwalks, as they were mainly through mangroves, whereas Jindalba was through rainforest and what I could only describe as Jurassic Park atmosphere and wilderness. I could easily walk this every day and take in something different each time. Cannot recommend this enough!

I attempted to do the Long Walk Entry,

Signals were non existence after 1 km and for the next three hours I walked through the river system for three hours in knee deep water.
With King ferns harp tentacles, I ended up walking up a steep embankment and stepped into a farm almost 5km away from my car

I was close in calling emergency service and lucky had a signal on my phone to help direct an exit.

A lucky escape

Very natural rainforest 3 km walk. Fairly easy but so interesting. Loved it. We didn't do Mossman Gorge as the walks get busy with tourists. We didn't see anyone else. Great walk!

You have a choice of doing the short boardwalk or the longer bush walk. We did the boardwalk, which was very easy to do with steps. We went at 8am in the morning and it was super tranquil and peaceful.

A friend and I completed the Jindalba Circuit walk on my latest trip to the Daintree. I had been to Jindalba Boardwalk many times but didn’t realise there was a longer circuit track until recently. After completing the Jindalba Circuit I can say that this is the perfect walk to do if you are keen to immerse yourself in the rainforest of the Wet Tropics.

The Circuit walk is a moderate in terms of difficulty and is 3km long with some uphill sections and a couple of easy rainforest creek crossings. From a botanical perspective, the walk is off the charts good, with abundant plant and tree diversity thought dense lowland Daintree rainforest. It is also cassowary habitat and you could easily spot one of these dinosaur like birds (as I have done on the boardwalk in the past). The walk encompasses the base of Mount Alexandra. You may also spot a Bennet’s tree kangaroo, musky-rat kangaroo & paradise kingfisher on the walk.

Both walks are accessed from the car park a little beyond the Discovery Centre. Some small sections of the 700m boardwalk were closed when we were there, but you can still enjoy the majority of it. Still a bit slippery in parts so take it easy! This should dry out a bit more over the next 6 months. We did the 2.7km walk as well; hardly anyone else about on this longer circuit, surprised that we saw very little wildlife, but nevertheless this is a lovely atmospheric walk through the rainforest. The path is a bit obscure in places, with tree roots, little creek crossings and debris to negotiate, so keep your eyes out for the pink ribbons tied at head height to trees, which will show you the way to go. It is described as a walk for the ‘more adventurous’, and you do need reasonable fitness and agility. It took us about 1.5hrs to complete this beautiful loop walk. Do take water and bug spray.

There are a couple of possible walks here: in addition to the 650m boardwalk, there is a 2.7km rough rainforest walk which is somewhat more strenuous. We did both.

The rainforest environment itself was great but there’s was very little to see at all in terms of wildlife when we walked from about 8am.

Fortunately, driving too this spot we did have some roadside spotting of cassowary. Worth doing but not as spectacular as the other boardwalks in the Daintree.

I love this beautiful rainforest boardwalk through the Daintree rainforest. It’s short, easy, the lush plant & tree life is amazing and cassowary sightings are common (I saw one on my first visit). It’s definitely a place I’ll keep returning to and is my favourite of the several short boardwalks in the Daintree/Cape Tribulation area.
