Booloumba creek day use area to Wongai Walkers camp

This 2 dayer is part of the Conondale 4 day hike. Its a great weekender hike.

Maps state that its 11km, but the GPS marked it out at 12.1km. Next day is just a case of returning back the way you came. And best of all its most down hill for the return trip.

Ewan Maddock Dam. Tallow-wood walk

The first part of this walk follows the edge of the lake while the second half moves away from the water's edge. You will see a mixture of Rough, Scribbly and Paperbark trees. There are also lots of birds. The path is generally shady and can be muddy after rain. Parts of it are also used by bike and horse riders. There are quite a few side tracks, though some of these get quite muddy as they get close to the water.

This is a great family walk. The No.1 track is a 5km one way track. So thats 10km return. Each kilometer is marked up to 5km, so you can turn around at anytime to make this walk as long as you wish. You also have the chance to come back via one of the smaller tracks on your return leg. Just keep an eye out for horses and bicycle riders as it is a shared track.
