Djiru National Park
Cassowary Coast Area
Free Entry - Entry Information
This park protects some of the last remaining lowland rainforest in the wet tropics, including a rare patch of licuala fan palm forest and is one of the few places you're likely to see an unusual and endangered bird, the southern cassowary. The park is within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.
Enjoy a barbecue at Lacey Creek day-use area and learn about cassowaries at the information shelter. Nearby, signs in the cassowary arboretum identify the trees that cassowaries feed on. Stroll along the short circuit walk through the forest and past a viewing platform overlooking the creek. Take a picnic to Licuala day-use area and follow the children's cassowary walk. Amble along the longer circuit walk that leads you under the bright green, patterned canopy of licuala fan palms. Keep a lookout for cassowaries and always 'Be Cass-o-wary!'
Children are welcome.
There is access for guests with a disability. The toilets at Lacey Creek day-use area and part of the 1.3 kilometre Fan Palm walk at Licuala day-use area are wheelchair accessible.
