Poona Lake via Carlo Sandblow
Starting from the car park at the end of Coolala Drive, this walk takes you to the Poona Lake via the Carlo Walking Track (a part of Cooloola Great Walk) and back, visiting the Carlo Sandblow along the way. Explore the lively rainforest that is filled with the birdsong of wompoo fruit-doves, noisy pittas and catbirds as you make your way to the tea-coloured lake. The water at the lake is clear despite the tea leaves on it. The pristine white sand around the lake can make for a great picnic spot. In spring, lilly pillies cover the entire area with white berries, creating a lovely sight for you to see. Keep an eye out for impressive strangler figs and piccabeen palms as well. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
