Gheerulla Creek Circuit
6 h, 9 h 30 min to 2 days
Starting from Delicia Road, Gheerulla, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Mapleton National Park, visiting Gheerulla Falls and following the same-titled creek along the way. There are multiple campsites spread along the track that allows you to make this an overnight walk. Expect a satisfactory creekside hike half the way, then a decent ascent taking you into a different type of vegetation and environment. The Gheerulla Falls are best viewed after decent rainfall, forming a lovely swimming hole for you to jump in below. You’ll have a chance to view the picturesque valley from the various lookouts throughout the track. Keep an ear out for bellbirds, owls and kookaburras. If you’re planning on staying the night, remember to place a booking beforehand. 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.
