The path is easy to walk and close to the airport. My flight left later in the afternoon, so I went here first.
One of the paths starts as a muddy forest, but slowly becomes a true mangrove, including the water. There are lots and lots of trees and some information boards as well. I would not go here during or just after heavy rainfall, as the wood might be a little slippery.
Also, beware of crocodiles.
I did not see any, but there’s a warning sign near the start of the path.

Exiting the airport on the left is a parking lot where the two boardwalks through the mangroves start. They are not too long, appr. 30 to 40 min. Some explanation is given on the two type of different trees. It gives you a good impression how the coast must have looked like when the British arrived and had to find a way to more solid grounds....

Nothing fancy but gives you an opportunity to walk through beautiful dense mangrove trees, under and above the canopies. Free, great picture spots, some educational posters along the way. Bring bug repellant!

One of the first things that struck me about ‘The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk’ is my admiration for the people who I envisaged waded through mud, tangled mangroves roots, labored in tropical heat and cursed mosquitoes to build this walk. Thank you: as this permits me access to an incredible eco-system. I must admit that previously I conventionalized the Mangroves as simply shrubs in the mud but in some sections the term ‘Mangrove Forest’ is apt. As a photographer, I look at this environment from an aesthetic perspective. This has compelled me to visit this walk several times now and my enjoyment of the mangroves as a beautiful environment has grown. I can also appreciate why a biologist could spend countless hours researching the interconnectedness of this eco-system and the tides that feed this environment.

バス通りからケアンズ空港に続く一本道の途中にある、マングローブの森の遊歩道です。
時間に余裕がある方はよってみるのも良いかもしれません。

There are two boardwalks of different lengths that start at the car park. Both are worthwhile. One goes to an area with very tall mangrove and it is relatively dark due to the dense canopy above. If you visit at low tide you will see crabs, snails and mudskippers walking about in the wet mud below you. Some interesting birds may be seeing as well. As you walk you may also see interesting ferns and the ant plants. These are specialized plants that live on the mangrove trees. They have small, round hollow trunks which are inhabited by large number of ants.

As with any attraction in Cairns if you do this during the wetter warmer time of the year (mid November on) it can be quite warm and humid. In early November this walk was pleasant since the weather was still relatively dry and temperatures were not too bad. Very few insects which would definitely not be the case during the rainy season.

Two well-done boardwalks with interpretive signs that provide interesting information about this very unique habitat. The elevated boardwalk over the flooded (high tide) or muddy area (low tide) allows you to walk into the fascinating mangrove forest. The other boardwalk also goes to a mangrove forest, but the trees are shorter and the forest is more open.

This is a free attraction. There are no bathrooms.

Stumbled upon this gem after leaving the airport. We went back and walked both trails twice! I could do this over and over again. It was so peaceful and serene. You would never know you were next to the airport. We even saw a small crocodile. It was pure magic. We would give this a 10 rating if we could!

This walk is situated near the airport. Not many people seem to know it is there apart from the locals.
We stopped by this walk before leaving Cairns and so glad we did.
It was a quiet day where we were the only ones at the carpark. We ventured into the mangroves and were so impressed by the work put into the board walk.
Although crocodiles may lurk in the shallows, we felt safe because the boardwalk was build high above the river bank.
We saw many small crabs and mudskippers and the information boards along the way provided an educational insight for the kids.
A great way to see the importance of the mangroves and how they help the reef systems off shore.
Although the place is a bit polluted from inconsiderable people throwing rubbish, the place is a must see and more people should take time to understand how important these ecosystems are.
Be sure to take the insect repellent though!! Mozzies and sandflies were rife there.

Found this place by accident when needing to do a uturn near the airport. It is two boardwalks one is 600m and the other is 800m. It is a nice peaceful walk through the mangroves. At low tide you can see lots of frogs and crabs.
