Sea Acres Rainforest boardwalk is a 1.3km, grade 1 circuit hike, located in the Sea Acres National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1hr to complete.

Hike Summary

Many wonders of the rainforest reside above ground level, so getting up into the canopy is the best way to explore it properly. Rising seven metres through the forest understorey to the canopy above, Sea Acres Rainforest boardwalk provides the perfect platform from which to experience this busy habitat.
Setting out from Sea Acres Rainforest Centre, you're likely to see rainforest birds, like the scarlet robin, feeding and nesting in tree branches. And keep an eye out for goannas and the slithering diamond python.
You'll also encounter our educational and environmentally-themed attraction, Save our Koalas, which showcases 6 artist-created koala sculptures placed at intervals along the boardwalk.
This rainforest was a rich resource for the Biripai people. They used the walking stick palm as a travel aid and made weapons from the python tree, which is the second hardest wood in the world.
Take a walk in the canopy along the boardwalk, enjoy the colourful sculptures, and learn about the threatened species living in the precious littoral rainforest at Sea Acres.
Take a virtual tour of Sea Acres Rainforest boardwalk captured with Google Street View Trekker.
