Starting from Minnamurra Rainforest Centre this return walk leads through a lush rainforest of Budderoo National Park. The 500 m long track to the second suspension bridge is wheelchair accessible and also great for families with young children. Enjoy the views from viewing platforms and read interpretive signs along the way. On your way back stop for coffee at Lyrebird Cafe. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
