Easy track
Starting from the western end of Narrows Road, North Maleny, this little circuit walk takes you to the Baroon Pocket Dam Spillway Lookout, providing you a good view over Obi Obi Creek. If you’re lucky, there’ll be water gushing down the spillway. You can use this opportunity to capture a slow-motion video of it. Keep an eye out for goannas and bush turkeys as they are pretty common in the area. 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.
