Getting there (Car Park)

Turn East onto Redbank Plains Rd from the Cunningham Hwy. Turn right onto School Rd and drive South until you reach the Paperbark Flats Picnic Area. The final part of the road is unsealed but in very good condition. Ignore the horse float parking area on your left and proceed to the Paperbark Flats Picnic Area carpark. Weekends can get quite busy so you may have to park in the horse float parking area, if so park in the centre so horse floats can park near the fence on the sides.

Getting there (Car Park - Start of Track)

Follow the main walking track (Six Mile Creek Track) on the far side of the picnic area. Around 500m along the track there will be a signpost (indicating LWRT) on the left. Alternatively you could follow Six Mile Creek Boardwalk (which starts a bit before on the left) which ends at the same spot as this track starts.

Route/Trail notes

Follow the track up hill. On the left will be a path to the Little White Rock Lookout Circuit (LWRL). This then joins back onto this track. End of the track meets up with the main track, turn right to go back to the begining.


Do you need any permits? What's the cost?

Easy short walk. Nice, not much of a view though.

Great short walk with the kids. The Buff lookout is easy with a board walk most of the way. Little white rock is a little more effort with littlies, but still easy.
