If you like waterfalls and beautiful rainforests, Springbrook National Parkâ€™s longest hike, the Warrie Circuit, is for you. The forest is part of the stunning Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage zone in South East Queensland. The loop track crosses several creeks and gullies, eventually reaching the â€˜Meeting of the Water's, where all watercourses draining the Canyon meet - this rushing water inspired the traditional landowners to name this area "Warrieâ€. It is here that we will stop and have a rest and something to eat before starting the climb out, so bring along something for an early lunch.
There are so many highlights on this adventure: The spectacular view as you look out from the top of the canyon to the forest floor; You get to walk over, behind and around more than half a dozen waterfalls; There are rock pools to rest by, creeks to scramble across and maybe a bit of mud to squelch through too; The forest is beautiful. from the smallest, most delicate lichens to swamp gums so enormous you struggle to see the top of them; There is plenty of wildlife to look out - pademelons, giant land mullet skinks and pythons; Listen for the haunting cry of the catbird or hear the cracking sound of eastern whips birds fill the early morning air.
Once we are back at Tallanbana Picnic Area we will serve hot coffee and tea with a lovely homemade treat or two (provided).
Suggestion: Stop at Apple Tree Park for toilet stop on way (map: https://goo.gl/maps/7EM7tV6bvjwwiDim8).
