Jack Barnes Mangrove Boardwalk

🌿 In a breathtaking journey through time and nature, this evocative mini-documentary unveils the remarkable story of the Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk at Cairns Airport. 🌿

The Jack Barnes Boardwalk, once a tranquil haven, had fallen into disrepair. The wooden planks, once trodden by countless feet, lay forgotten as nature began to reclaim its space.

But this is not just a story of decay; it’s a story of rebirth, unity, and triumph.

The film poignantly captures the essence of collaboration as John Breen (The original designer of the Jack Barnes boardwalk in 1985), Cairns Airport and the Traditional owners join hands. Their shared respect for the land and its history becomes the catalyst for an extraordinary transformation.

The Jack Barnes Boardwalk, once a shadow of its past, stands resplendent and proud, a testament to what can be achieved through unity, respect, and determination.

πŸƒ Join us as we walk the planks of this rejuvenated treasure, and immerse yourself in a story that transcends time, culture, and ecology. πŸƒ
