Booloumba Creek Day Use Area to Wongai Walkers Camp
Starting from Booloumba Creek Day Use Area, Kenilworth, this walk takes you to the Wongai Walkers Campground via the first section of the 56 km long Conondale Range Great Walk track. This journey along Booloumba Creek is full of highlights such as the Strangler Cairn and the abandoned barred-up gold mine from the 1920s. You’ll also pass by two gorgeous waterfalls named Artists Cascades and Booloumba Falls. This adventurous hike can be made into a return walk as well, if you’re not doing the great walk. Keep in mind that the track can be quite slippery when wet, along with the higher number of leeches. Depending on the weather and track conditions, you may need to park your vehicle 2-3 kilometres up north and cross Booloumba Creek twice on foot unless you have a 4WD vehicle with good clearance. 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.
