Walk

Starting from Lamington National Park Road, O’Reilly, this circuit walk takes you deep into the lush rainforests of Lamington park, navigating partly along Albert River and visiting multiple waterfalls and lookouts. Expect to be amazed by the stunning view of the waterfalls and the interchanging vegetation throughout the track. Although the track is roughly 20 kilometres long, it may not feel like it as the tracks are gentle and undulating. When you’re near water, keep an eye out for the native Lamington crayfish, also known as the blue spiny crayfish due to its vibrant blue coloured shell. Other wildlife you can run into in the area are king parrots and dingoes. You’ll be going through some ancient Antarctic Beech trees along with other interesting rainforest plant species. The Echo Point camp site midway is meters away from the same-titled lookout, where you can get exceptional panoramic views to the south. During the day, you’ll be able to see many mountains and hills including Mount Warning, whereas the night offers you an exceptional opportunity for stargazing. Decent(preferably waterproof) hiking boots and gaiters are recommended against the muddy and leechy conditions. Keep an eye out for snakes. 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.

Walk
3 h 30 min to 5 h 30 min

Starting from the Booloumba Creek Day Use Area, Kenilworth, this walk takes you to the Artists Cascades and back via the Conondale Range Great Walk Track, visiting the Strangler Cairn and potentially the abandoned gold mine along the way. Try to allow as many hours as possible to this walk as you won’t understand how much time has passed whilst enjoying the lovely swimming spot at the end. Besides the refreshing water, the track offers possible side trips to a unique cairn and a historic gold mine from the 1920s. Additionally, the wildlife in the area include goannas, skinks and wallabies as well as different species of snakes. Scan the treetops for a chance to spot yellow robins and black cockatoos. All in all, this adventure of a walk is rated amongst the best walks in eastern Queensland. Keep in mind that the track can be quite slippery when wet, along with an increased 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.

Circuit

Walk

Starting from the car park at the end of Bunya Avenue, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Bunya Mountains National Park, crossing multiple creeks and visiting several lookouts & waterfalls along the way. You’ll have the option to visit the Barker Creek Lookout and a colossal strangler fig that you can literally go through. Expect a leisurely hike that pushes you just the right amount as you go through the dense subtropical rainforest. From lovely waterfalls to panoramic picturesque views, this quiet walk through nature disconnects you from the thrum of modern life with ease. The area is home to colourful bird species such as Pittas and a dab of the exceptional Victoria’s Riflebird. The waterfalls are best viewed after some decent rainfall, but this leads to an increased number of leeches. Remember to bring a raincoat regardless of the forecast.

Starting from the Carnarvon Gorge Visitor Centre, Carnarvon Park, this walk takes you to the summit of Battleship Spur and back via the Big Bend Walk and Carnarvon Great Walk tracks. A 30+ km return walk with the potential side trips included, this adventurous journey is one of the most satisfactory hikes in Queensland, if not the best. From the Battleship Spur, you’ll be rewarded by truly exceptional views of the gorge after spending your whole day in it. Landmarks along the way include the Moss Garden and the well-known Amphitheatre. Try to visit each one of them and stay at the creekside campsite to make the most out of your ‘Big Bend’ experience. Notice the change of terrain and vegetation as you make your way through the subtropical bush to colossal sandstone walls. This route involves rock hopping and scrambling, but the steps carved by the park rangers on the sandstone walls will aid you. Bring some insect repellent to protect yourself from the mozzies(Australian slang for mosquitoes) and expect to get wet feet. Let us begin by acknowledging the Bidjara & Karingbal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Big Bend walkers’ camp, Carnarvon Park, this walk takes you to the Gadd’s campsite via the second section of the 87 km Carnarvon Great Walk, visiting the Battleship Spur along the way. The humongous meandering gorge looks absolutely captivating from the 1000-metre-high Battleship Spur, as it was carved out by some mighty being. As you ascend from Big Bend campsite along Boowinda Gorge, the relatively narrow Boowinda Gorge will show you its picturesque sandstone walls. The rays of sunlight hitting the walls at different angles make them look even better. The Gadd’s campsite is located near an old stockyard and only features a shelter. Keep in mind that you’ll need a permit to access Carnarvon Park and the campsites. This walk is closed from the 1st of November to the last day of February.

Binna Burra to Woonoongoora

Oneway

Walk
6 h to 8 h

Starting from the Binna Burra Mountain Lodge Campsite, Beechmont, this track takes you to Woonoongoora walkers’ camp via the second section of the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk, crossing Nixon Creek and Waterfall Creek along the way. This scenic journey through the vast valleys and dense woodlands of Queensland also has a feeling of remoteness to it, even though you walk on paved roads for a bit. The said valleys include Waterfall Creek Valley and Kurraragin Valley. You’ll be able to see the white (rhyolite) cliffs, Burma cedars, rose gums and much more along the way. Both trailheads have a place for you to stay, yet the Binna Burra end has more amenities including hotel rooms and a restaurant. Many walkers have rated this track “demanding yet worthwhile” so don’t expect a stroll in the woods. Keep in mind that there may be horse riders on parts of the track, so keep an ear out.

Box Forest Waterfall Circuit
10 km
Circuit

Walk
4 h to 6 h

Starting from Lamington National Park Road, O’Reilly, this walk takes you on a circuit in the heart of Lamington National Park mostly via the Box Forest Circuit Track, visiting the iconic Elabana Falls, Box Log Falls, and the Picnic Rock area. As you start hiking through the beautiful forest containing 1000+ year old trees, you’ll be welcomed by the harmonic birdsong. Then, you’ll hear the soothing sound of water gushing down as the refreshing air around the cascades fill into your lungs. The lovely waterfalls hidden amidst the dense forest are exceptionally beautiful after rain as they are at their strongest. The Picnic Rock near Elabana Falls is a great spot to have a little picnic -hence the name- and swim(depending on the conditions). You may be able to spot some Lamington Crayfish, the spiny blue crayfish also known as ‘Yabby’ amongst Australians. The Box Log Falls are also worth stopping by as the setting of this little waterfall is quite picturesque, even more so than Elabana Falls according to some. The circuit itself other than the falls goes through a scenic forest that’s teeming with wildlife, teasing you with easterly views along the way. Although it’s best to view the falls after some decent rain, leeches become more abundant in such conditions. Wear long sleeves and pants to make this less of a problem. Keep in mind that you may run into some red-bellied black snakes as well, especially in warmer months. The track can be muddy in sections, and some rock scrambling/hopping may be required to reach the base of the falls. 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.
