About Juwun and Jambal walks

    Walk highlights

    The Herbert River Gorge is a conduit between the Wet Tropics and the drier Einasleigh Uplands. The lower section of the gorge traverses the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

    Discover some of the region’s most diverse landscapes along the walks as the Wet Tropics gives way to tropical savanna woodland. Open forest dominates the escarpments and she-oaks line the river. Vine-thicket rainforest scattered with hoop pines persists along the gullies and upper slopes.

    Walk management

    The Wet Tropics Great Walk is managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) for the purposes of nature conservation and nature-based recreation.

    A management plan for Girringun National Park will be produced in the future.
