Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service has rebuilt the popular toilet block at the Kulki day use area at Cape Tribulation in Daintree National Park.

The original toilet block was destroyed in an arson event in December 2014.

Principal Ranger Brett Stallbaum said the project had cost approximately $270,000, and works had included removing the fire-damaged infrastructure, rebuilding the toilets, and adding other improvements.

"The 10 toilets at Kulki now have improved wheelchair access," Mr Stallbaum said.

"Thanks to everyone for their patience during the project.

"We know Kulki is a popular site for day visitors, whether they‘re on tours or travelling independently.

"People love to stop for a picnic, take the boardwalk to the platform overlooking the beach and ocean, or walk the short track down to beautiful Myall Beach.

"These toilets are much-needed facilities, and the news that they’ve reopened will be a great relief for everyone.

"It was a difficult task to retro-fit the existing facilities, and the builders have done a great job.

"QPWS used local contractors, and environmentally-friendly decking materials that will stand up to the tropical climate.

"This is just one of several projects we are working on to keep improving the visitor experience in the Daintree," Mr Stallbaum said.
