Cutten Brothers Walking Track
Map your trip
In the late 1800s the first white settlers came to the Mission Beach area to farm for mangoes, bananas, pineapples, coffee, citrus fruit and coconuts – the Cutten Brothers Walking Track commemorates these people.
The walk takes you through one of the most beautiful rainforest in the region, with spectacular views back to Boat Bay. The vegetation in the area is quite incredible, and you’ll see king ferns, arenga palms and a variety of other trees. Keep your eyes peeled too for Cassowaries and a wide variety of rainforest birds.
As you walk along the track take a few minutes to read about the Cutten family who were the early pioneers of this area, together with the traditional owners, the Djiru people and some of the iconic features of the diverse landscape. There are seven signboards along the track that help share this story.
The walk will take you about 30-45 minutes and is around 1.6 kilometres in length. It’s suggested that you wear good walking shoes, and ensure that all rubbish is taken with you and not left behind.
