Are you brave enough? Step onto this swaying bridge suspended across Rex Creek, near where it joins the Mossman River, and stride (or tiptoe) to the other side. From the bridge, watch the clear waters cascading over rocks below and try to spot fish and turtles in the quieter pools.

You can reach the Rex Creek bridge from Baral Marrjanga track. Once safely across, retrace your steps or continue on the Rainforest circuit track.

This park is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, famed for its exceptional natural beauty, outstanding examples of the record of life, evolutionary history and remarkable diversity.
