Starting from the car park off Reed Road, Cairns, this track takes you to the summit of Earl Hill via the Earl Hill Walking Track. Expect to be welcomed by the remarkable views over the coastline as you feel the pleasant ocean breeze on your face. There are also great south-easterly views of the mountains near Cairns. The track was renewed and made less steep in early 2019, so it can make for a great first hike. As a plus, you can bring your dog with you, provided you keep him/her on a leash. Refuel at the drinking fountain next to a dog water bowl before going up. An insect repellant may save you from the ‘mozzies’(Australian slang for mosquitos) in summer. 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.
