East Rim Track (Full)

Morton National Park
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

Running from Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre to Warrawong lookout in the northern section of the park, this self-guided wildflower walk is a nature-lover’s dream. (You can also combine this trac with the West Rim track to make a longer walk - the East Rim track is the less busy/popular option, and not as spectacular as the West Rim Track).

Offering a delightful excursion through diverse native plants and trees, the East Rim Wildflower walking track is both scenic and informative. Spot the colourful flowers as you roam the track past a cornucopia of plant communities including dry eucalypt forests, grassy woodlands, heathlands and rainforest areas just bursting with birds. You’ll encounter spectacular lookouts with views over the valley as you go, along with helpful signs pointing out interesting flowers, useful hints and details on changing environment.

Comments

It was very cloudy, making this a very magical walk through the bush. A lot of interesting wildflowers on this side (compared to the West Rim). Unfortunately the clouds blocked most of the views. I was surprised with the information centre and cafe (not many walks have facilities like this). Will definitely revisit this one.
