Right in Cape Tribulation with a large carpark, Dubuji has been well
thought out and can cater for wheelchairs on the track and also the
Dubuji means "Place of Spirits"
in the Kuku Yalanji language.
Special funding was provided to produce a walk in a what can be a busy
tourist area using a boardwalk to protect the environment. At 1.2 kms
the track is rather short but there is plenty there to satisfy most
people and there is also access to the beach. With the interpretive
signage allow about an hour for the journey.
This walk is also well used by the public and starts at the carpark for
the Cape Tribulation Beach.
It leads to a terrific lookout over the beach and the mountainous
coastline. Look out for a pair of Shining Flycatchers near the beach.
Check where to stay in Daintree:
B&B, Holiday Home or Camp Ground.
Jindalba means "Foot of the Mountain" in the Kuku Yalanji language.
Jindalba is accessed from the Tulip Oak Road intersection on the Cape
Tribulation Road. This is where the Discovery Centre is and just before
the Cow Bay Hotel. Turn right and travel the short distance to the
carpark at Jindalba. The visitation rate here is much less than Mossman
Gorge. It is often used by birdwatchers looking for Cassowaries and
other rainforest species along the tracks.
This 650 metre rainforest boardwalk circuit winds up the hill and
sometimes reaches 3 metres off the ground. This provides elevated views
of this lowland rainforest, including king ferns and fig trees. The
interpretive signs explain the rainforest structure and ecological
processes of how different species have evolved to make up the
rainforest. Keep a look out for Cassowaries. These are large flightless
birds and it is best to keep your distance. Please do not feed them or
act as if you are going to feed them. Cassowaries are best ignored and
left on their own.
