Cooloolabin Conservation Park - Kiamba Rd Section.

Just a short walk, less than 64 metres from the road. The track itself is dirt and there are plenty of raised roots closer to the creeks to trip over, no doubt exposed from flooding. The track leads to the junction of two feeder creeks that form the South Maroochy River that empties into Wappa Dam.
