Its a fine alternative to the paddle option, nice views toward the sand blow and a wetland (after all the rain we had). We returned late and had a beautiful sunset with views across the Noosa river. Boat/ kayak is needed to get across from Harrys Hut and back.

The Citriodora trail (part of the walk) is very well maintained and wide (fire brigade access) but also close to the freeway (noise pollution). Botanical Garden is very rewarding itself (has many paths to walk).

Medium

7 hrs
Completed the walk by walking on two occasions from either Binna Burra and O'Reillys to the middle (Chakoonya lookout) and return.
The purist: this does not count
The pragmatic: did the walk in each direction and did not have the hassle with the car pickup/ overnight backpack

I included the walk as an add on, coming back from the Coastal Walk. The sandy management trail was downhill and therefore not too exhausting.
