Conondale 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

This can be done in 1 day if fit and keen enough or make it a 2 dayer as part of the Conondale Great Walk. . Great weekender hike if you like to camp too. Starting from the Booloumba Creek day use area hike up past the Artist Cascades then onto Booloumba Falls following to the Wongai walkers camp. Maps state that its 11km, but the GPS marked it out at 12.1km. Returning back the way you came. And best of all its most down hill for the return trip.

Getting there:

From Kenilworth travel south on the Maleny Kenilworth Road for 7km before turning right onto Booloumba Creek Road. Travel a further 5km along this road to the entrance of the park. From here on, the road is unsealed and you will need a High Clearance 4WD as there a number of creek crossings. After 1km you will reach the Day Use Area on the right, where you can park.

All the walks start from here, although they can be accessed from the three camping areas.

The "CLIMB" ( hahaha) after Cascades will sort ya out -- nothing but steps for vertical of 270 odd mtr Altitude

It was a long steady climb after crossing the cascades and drying the feet. I was the only one too lazy to wear my gaiters on the way up and had the leeches because of it. The return trip the next day is easier, being almost all downhill.
