Consultation Open from 3 August to 11 September 2020.
The Wangetti Trail has been made possible with funding from the Australian Government and Queensland Government under the National Tourism Icons program. The trail is being delivered by the Queensland Government and Australian Government in collaboration with local governments, all working closely with Traditional Owners and broader local community.
When operational, walkers and mountain bike riders will be treated to a one-of-a-kind experience, including the opportunity to experience the region’s rich Aboriginal cultural history while taking in the stunning coastal and hinterland scenery of the World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics and Great Barrier Reef from Palm Cove to Port Douglas.
The Trail will feature natural ground and surface treatments, a number of low-level bridges and crossings, five public camping areas, four eco-accommodation sites and use of existing access tracks. It will be a five day/four night walk between Wangetti and Port Douglas and two days/one night for mountain bike riders from Wangetti to Port Douglas.
The southern section from Palm Cove to Wangetti will be a two day/one night walk with proposed public camping areas only or a single day trip mountain bike ride.
The Queensland Government has released further information on the Wangetti Trail here, or hard copies of the information can be viewed at Council’s offices in Mossman as well as the the libraries in Port Douglas and Mossman. Community consultation is open from Monday 3 August 2020 to Friday 11 September 2020.
