A picturesque walk on graded-tracks through lush rainforest, criss-crossing the upper-reaches of the Albert River. The track features a lookout from Echo Point giving panoramic views from Mt Wupawn to Mt Durigan and south into New South Wales across the Tweed Range all part of the eroded caldera that surrounds Mt Warning. There are a number of waterfalls along the track as well as some magnificent specimens of Antarctic Beech trees. Hopefully, the delicate beech orchid will be flowering contrasting with the massive tree trunks on which they grow.
Where to meet
8.00am – O’Reilly’s carpark for an 8.15am start.
After turning off the Pacific Highway at Beenleigh, travel thru Beenleigh to Canungra. Turn right at the park in Canungra and follow the signs to O’Reilly’s. Note: the road to O’Reilly’s is a narrow, winding road so needs to be driven slowly with care. Allow 2 hours from Brisbane Southside.
What to bring
Adequate food for a long walk – morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea plus snacks, 2-3litres water, hat, raingear, warm jacket, torch, whistle.
