Australia Travel > Queensland > Adventures > Bushwalking


Walking through the rainforest is one of the finest experiences that Queensland has to offer and, fortunately, opportunities for such outings abound. Options range from long trails through the cooler subtropical rainforests of places such as Lamington National Park in the Gold Coast Hinterland to short strolls along boardwalks in tracts of true tropical rainforest in areas such as Daintree National Park in the state’s far north and Eungella National Park, inland from Mackay. Most bushwalking tracks in the north of the state are limited to a few kilometers in length, though in some parks such as Eungella National Park several short walks can be linked together to create a rewarding day trip. One of the few multi-day trails is the Thorsborne Trail, a five-day hike along the east coast of Hinchinbrook Island, Australia’s largest island national park. This is one of the best bushwalks in the country. A popular inland destination for bushwalkers is Carnarvon Gorge National Park in Central Queensland. Here, the enjoyable and demanding Battleship Spur Walk, which requires tow or three days, follows a sometimes rough track that takes in a fine cross-section of the park’s varied environments. Brisbanites are fortunate in that their city lies close to several national parks with excellent walking trails. One group of such parks to the south occupies a crescent of bush-clad volcanic peaks and ridges on the New South Wales border known as the Scenic Rim. It includes the Lamington and Springbrook national parks, whose lush, shady rainforests offer a cool refuge in summer, and Mount Barney National Park, whose more sparsely vegetated ridges are popular among walkers during the cooler months.
