Walk

Starting from the Wongai walkers’ camp, Kenilworth, this walk takes you to the Tallowwood campground via the second section of the 56 km long Conondale Range Great Walk track. Exploring the rainforest of the national park, this scenic journey through the woods features heaps of wildlife including short-nosed echidnas, rufous fantails and noisy pittas. The male regent bowerbird will be relatively easier to spot due to its distinct black & yellow body. On the other hand, gigantic strangler figs and yellow carabeens along the track are bound to draw your attention. The bodies of water you’ll come across are actually home to multiple frog species that are at risk of extinction. Enjoy the lovely views of the canopy as you hike through the land and see if you can see the coastline in the distance. Keep in mind that you’ll need a 4WD vehicle with good clearance to get to the start. 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.
