Starting from Bunya Street(Tourist Drive 23), Maleny, this circuit walk follows the Obi Obi Creek for most of the way along The Maleny Trail, visiting the historic ‘Fairview’ Pattemore House midway through. A 90 minute drive from Brisbane, this is one of, if not the, best destination for platypus viewing in Queensland. Come early or late in the afternoon to increase your chances of spotting one. And if you follow the instructions provided at the viewing platform, you’re almost guaranteed to see some. Along with platypuses, there are lots of bird species for you to look out for. As you’re hiking through the serene scenery, you’ll come across the historic ‘Fairview’ Pattemore House as mentioned before. This state heritage listed farmhouse was built in 1907 for Emily and John Pattemore by their 4 sons. Don’t forget to view the ‘Peace in the Trees’ sculptures on the side of the track as well. There are also plenty of spots for you to rest and BBQ areas to enjoy a creekside picnic. Remember to take a hat and apply sunscreen as the track is fairly exposed. 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.
