Mt Marlow - Many Peaks Track (North Queensland)

Hard
10.3km return
3.5 hrs
Following recent rainfalls in early January, the landscape has transformed and the lagoons are now at capacity. Lots of water, but the birds are more dispersed.
Mt Marlow - Many Peaks Track (North Queensland)
11 Nov, 2020
Hard
10.3km return
3.5 hrs
Commenced at Pallarenda, walked the many Peaks Track returning via the Freshwater Trail. Not unusual for November, most of the shallow waters of the wetlands have dried up leaving water in the deeper lagoons only. Whilst the Magpie Geese have moved on there was still plenty of birdlife to see. Took about 4 hours including some time spent bird watching.

Alligator Creek is still flowing (typical low dry season flow), and the creek crossings are all easy.

Walked to the top summit. Track is in good condition.
Mt Marlow - Many Peaks Track (North Queensland)
28 May, 2020
Hard
10.3km return
3.5 hrs
The summit of Mt Marlow is open and grassy, with 360 degree views of the Townsville Town Common wetlands, Townsville, Magnetic Island and the coastline to the north and south. There are a number of options to reach the summit. On this occasion I used the Freshwater Trail (from the Freshwater carpark) and the Many Peaks Track to the summit and returned the same way. The first part of the walk is across the wetlands with superb bird watching/photographing opportunities. I witnessed a pair of Brolgas dancing, and a White-breasted Sea Eagle with prey. One of Townsville's best walks.
