Getting there:

Take the Kawana Way exit off the Sunshine Motorway. To your right, you will see a rough off-road track that runs along the side of the Park. At 250m there is a distinct entrance into the Park.

Route/Trail notes:

This clearly defined trail runs parallel with Kawana Way and back.



Other References/Comments:

You can extend your walk by doing a full circuit, by walking along Kawana Way to pick up the Melaleuca Trail, back onto the Aemula Trail that intersect the Boronia and back to your start.


I don’t usually comment on subsequent walk visits, but in this case, there was a purpose to the revisit. In late 2021 this area was devastated by a bush fire that took out 300ha. I wanted to see the devastation and also to see how it was recovering.
The primarily lowland wetland habitat was destroyed, but nature is a wonderful thing and the grasses, ferns and ground level plants are back, but as yet no evidence of tree and scrub growth.

Close to home (and Anaconda!), this is an area we had not previously visited. Originally described as 'wheelchair friendly', it was obviously not unless you had sand tyres: (I have changed it to 'Easy'). There are very few highlights, except for the occasional goanna, but a good trail for a bit of exercise. There was also a sign for the Robur Fire Trail at the start of the Boronia Trail, but not investigated, but presume that it follows the edge of the NP to the river?

We walked this as part of the whole circuit. This part is probably the hilliest, but not at all hard, and is quite pleasant.
