Walk

Starting from the end of Euodia Close, Barron Gorge, this walk takes you to the Glacier Rock Lookout and back mostly via the Douglas Track, crossing Stoney Creek near the start. Expect to see as far as you can over Cairns from the lookout, as the high vantage point rewards you with unobstructed panoramic views. As you’re going through the rainforests of Barron Gorge National Park, you’ll cross a railway track. Time your walk to capture some good frames of the train passing through nature. You’ll have a chance to see echidnas, parrots and even a cassowary if you’re lucky. Don’t forget to bring swimmers so you can cool off in Stoney Creek after the hike. The area may be busy on weekends, so schedule for a weekday to avoid the crowd. 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.
