Wishing Pool Circuit (Queensland)
29 Sep, 2019
Easy
1.7km return
30 mins
A nice quiet walk - very easy but had some trouble finding how to get there. I didn't research this walk beforehand so we were hoping to swim but this isn't a walk with any swimming spots. We were lucky enough to see a platypus on our walk :). A pretty luck moment at 1pm!!

There's no road signage. There is a gravel unmarked parking area on a bend and close to the river. This is where you park and across the road there is a sign saying track access point. A short way down the path you will find the sign showing that you are close to the Wishing Pool circuit.

Plenty of facilities and parking for this walk.
Rainforest Discovery Circuit (Queensland)

I have been here several different times and pretty much every time have seen heaps of platypi. Best to take a picnic (and binoculars for up close views) and get comfortable next to the creek to see the platypus. I wouldn't recommend going there after heavy rain as the river is too rough for any animal viewing.

Easy parking and plenty of facilities at this easy walk.

I did this walk a few times while I was working in Bowen - it was awesome!

Very easy to get to and stunning views at the end. Add a walk to Rose Bay or Murray Bay from here and return the same way (or via the road) and it is quite a nice invigorating walk.

Purling Brook Falls Circuit and Warringa Pool (Springbrook National Park)

Did this walk with my gf and it was stunning as always! It's easy to get there and has decent facilities. We had a mini-picnic lunch at the pools at the bottom. The water was freezing so no swimming for us.
Although this is technically a circuit one side of it is closed and doesn't look as though it's under repair at all.
This is a really nice walk and it's not too hard.

Minyon Grass to Base of Minyon Falls (Nightcap National Park)

Took some couchsurfers here and we really enjoyed this walk. It was quite a hot day but we had plenty of shade so the walk wasn't overly difficult. Rock scrambling at the base of the falls was fun! Take a picnic and enjoy lunch under the majestic waterfall.

If you have mobility issues then you might have trouble with this one. It's quite steep and could be muddy after the rain.
