We are still working to keep Jack Barnes Boardwalk open to the public. Show your support for reopening this iconic Cairns landmark by filling out the information below.

"To Mayor Bob Manning and Cairns Regional Councillors. We, the undersigned object to the permanent closure of the Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk. We believe this invaluable public educational asset must be repaired and kept open to the use of students, researchers, tourists and locals alike. A boardwalk at another location will not suffice in showcasing the diversity of mangrove species nor the tidal and estuarine gradients, not to mention involve unnecessary additional clearing of mangrove habitat."
