Woodgate Banksia Walking Track

Wide Bay Burnett

A 200m paved surface leads from the entrance of the park to the boardwalk. The boardwalk is 400m in distance making a round trip from the park entrance and back about 1.4 km. The walking track varied from hard pressed dirt and grass, to quite soft sandy soil but in general was very well maintained and flat. Prams with pump-up tyres and bikes would both cope well on this track. The full circuit is 5.2km and takes about 2 hours to complete. The scenery was varied from large cabbage palms and ferns to forests of eucalypts and banksias.

Nice walk. Easy all the way and very easy to navigate. A bit tricky with little kids

Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Lots of banksias. No wildlife. Just really scenic. Few trees down over the path so you have to bush bash a couple of times. Hopefully they’ll clear them soon.
