Melaleuca Circuit - Burrum Coast National Park


A nice walk, just 45 minutes drive from Bundaberg. Walk through the trees to come out to a beautiful mangrove and continue on to an 4WD/walk in only camp-site. A short sandy section along the beach, leads you back to the start of the circuit. Official signage says 12km return, but my GPS only measured around 11km.

Route/Trail notes

Around 500m of bitumen leads into a kilometer or so of hard packed stone/dirt. You then come out on a mangrove, with plenty of wildlife. From here you can go to the campsite, or follow the signs for the circuit (this is where the return actually starts). The campsite is around halfway through the circuit and has toilets available. Then there is a short walk alongside the beach until you return through the bushland back to the start.


No permit or costs.

Great circuit in Burrum Coast National Park. A very flat and easy to traverse track. You could bring swimmers and stop for a swim just after reaching the campground. Would be spectacular in winter.
