About Mount Sorrow

    Looking after the walk

    • Do not pull yourself up steep sections of the trail using vegetation, as plants may be damaged.
    • Always stay on the trail. Do not cut corners or create new trails as this leads to erosion and adjacent areas may be unstable.
    • Toilets are not provided. Use a trowel to bury toilet waste and paper. Dig a 15 centimetre hole at least 100 metres away from the trail. Take all sanitary items with you—they do not decompose.
    • Littering the national park is prohibited. Rubbish bins are not provided. Do not bury rubbish—take it with you when you leave.
    • Do not disturb or feed wildlife.
    • Everything in the park is protected. Please leave everything as you found it.

    See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in national parks.

    Walk management

    In 1981 Cape Tribulation National Park was declared, protecting 17,000 hectares of rainforest. The area was amalgamated into Daintree National Park in 1995.

    Daintree National Park is managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, in collaboration with the Wet Tropics Management Authority, for the purposes of nature conservation and nature-based recreation. It is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and is adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
