You’ll find this charming walk 6.5 km south of Kenilworth on the Kenilworth –Maleny Road. Built in 1994 by the Youth Conservation Corps, this easy 1.1 km return wheelchair friendly walk explores the riverine rainforest near the junction of Little Yabba Creek and the Mary River.
A sealed and boardwalk track provides wheelchair access which highlights great specimens of the Morton Bay Fig.
Walk quietly and you may hear a Wompoo pigeon, see skinks basking in the sunshine, and glimpse birds flitting about the forest’s understorey and foraging in the leaf litter.
You will enjoy some wonderful interpretive signs strategically placed around this delightful circuit where you will learn more about the rainforests of the Hinterland. Stop at the giant fig tree towards the end of the walk for a photo.
There are delightful picnic areas with river views and across the road from the boardwalk entry accessible from the car park.
