Starting from Connolly Road, Mowbray, this return walk takes you to a viewpoint near the Big Mowbray Falls along Mowbray River, mostly via the historic Bump Track. After making your way through the diverse rainforest and finally making it to the riverside, head just a 100 metres downstream to find your prize. You’ll arrive at an incredibly scenic rock pool atop the waterfall, offering you absolute serenity while you’re cooling off. Savor the views over Mowbray Valley as the cool water readies your legs for the way back. Created by Christie Palmerston(a pathfinder) in April 1877, The Bump Track was originally an Aboriginal trail. Grippy hiking shoes are recommended. The track can become dangerous and even impassable during/after rainfall, as the Robbins Creek crossing floods. Even if it doesn’t, the rocks become extremely slippery. Keep an eye out for snakes at all times. 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.
