Rainforest Circuit Ravensbourne


As the name suggests, a walk through the rainforest in Ravensbourne National Park. As well as the standard rainforest vegetation there are blue gums in this section.

Getting there

From Toowoomba drive north to Hampton and then turn right onto the Hampton-Esk Rd.  Travel for 17km before turning right onto the National Park Rd.  Look for the sign.  The walk starts at the day use area a short distance along the road.

Completed this one with the Buaraba Creek Trail, Sandstone Overhang & Palm Creek Circuit. Ended up being 8.5km in total. A lovely place to hike & a good track.

Pleasant walk for our 2 and 4 year old kids. Some handholding on the steps, but no big deal.

Took the tip to do the walk in an anti-clockwise direction then went on to the Palm Creek circuit out to the Sandstone overhang, back along the same track to the other part of the Palm Creek circuit to Buaraba creek, back to the Palm Creek circuit and finally the rest of the Rainforest circuit to make one big walk. The cool rainforest made this an enjoyable walk on a hot day.

Beautiful rain forest type environment. I combined it with the other walks in the park and had difficulties completing them all.

This is a really beautiful bit of rainforest and a good walk. We did the rainforest circuit and then the palm circuit, both were lovely but the rainforest circuit had more atmosphere and some really great old giant trees. The Rainforest has some stairs but is definitely easier than the Palm circuit.

We walked this track on our way back from Buaraba Creek. It would have been easier to walk in the other direction due to the stairs. If you're fit it wouldn't be a problem though.
