About the Manjal Jimalji trail
We need your help to protect this area and keep it in its natural state.
- Domestic animals are prohibited in national parks as they can disturb and harm wildlife.
- Do not scare, chase or feed animals.
- Take rubbish (including food scraps) home with you.
- Stay on the trail. Shortcutting damages vegetation and causes erosion.
- Toilets are not provided. Use a trowel to bury toilet waste and paper. Dig a 15cm hole at least 100m away from watercourses and the trail. Take all sanitary items with you—they do not decompose.
- Please do not pull yourself up steep sections of the trail using vegetation, as plants may be damaged.
- Remember, this is a national park—everything is protected.
See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
Daintree National Park (CYPAL) is managed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) for the purposes of nature conservation and nature-based recreation. It is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.
Daintree National Park (CYPAL), made up of Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation, covers 73,500ha.
In 2007, the Eastern Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people signed a series of Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUAs) with the Queensland Government and other bodies. The ILUAs recognise Eastern Kuku Yalanji's rights to be custodians and managers of their traditional country. Under one of these ILUAs Eastern Kuku Yalanji people will be more involved in managing Daintree National Park (CYPAL).
