Devil's Thumb Hike

Duration | 11 hours
Mobile Ticket OK

The Devil's Thumb Hike operates from the 1st May - the 31st October. 
Located in the World Heritage-listed Daintree National Park, this challenging 10km-return walk is steep, but offers guests a truly unique experience. As you make your way up the trail, walk through a variety of terrain ranging from lowland rainforest, to a coral fern-dotted clearing 1000m up.

Scramble over boulders to reach the lookout of Devils Thumb; a large boulder overhanging the rainforest below. Enjoy sublime views across the Main Coast Range, the coast line and Coral Sea to the East. The views and abundant birdlife to spot, make the hard work worthwhile.
