 Enjoy this gorgeous walk through impressive stands of ancient smooth, pink-barked brush box that give their name to the walk.

We will begin our walk on the Border Track before branching off to join the Box Forest Circuit and making our way down into the valley and along Canungra Creek where we may be lucky enough to spot the endemic and threatened  Blue Spiny Crayfish in the clear pools. The walk passes by the beautiful Tullerigumai Falls (Box Log Falls) and Picnic Rock where we may stop for morning tea, before we reach the picturesque Elabana Falls where clear mountain water cascades from high up in the forest, plunging into deep pools and over rocks before continuing down the valley. 

After a short photo op stop we will continue along the circuit enjoying views of even more waterfalls such as Darragumai and Yanbacoochie Falls as we make our way back.

Lamington National Park falls within the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famous for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity.

This walk is approx 2hrs drive from Brisbane and 1.5hrs drive from the Gold Coast.  Why not organise a carpool on our private Qld Facebook group

There is plenty of parking in the O’Reilly’s Day use area car park and toilets are available at the Mountain Café prior to starting the walk

Yoga and Brunch in The Vineyard Canungra Valley QLD

Truly wonderful day in a spectacular part of the world. Commenced with 1 1/2 hours of gentle yoga and meditation in a beautiful space overlooking the vineyard, by the beautiful Margot. After yoga we headed down to the creek to set up our picnic chairs and rugs and collect our picnic baskets. Wow what a delight the picnic baskets were, filled with delicious food catering for all diets, with enough food to take home for dinner. A lovely glass of bubbly and an ice cream finished off the scrumptious lunch. Great company and conversation over lunch. Would definitely recommend this day out in a beautiful part of the world.

Thank you for organising such a lovely morning. Margot's yoga class was relaxing and refreshing, and the venue was fabulous. The lunch basket was delicious, with enough to take home for another meal. All the ladies were friendly. Thank you Chris for hosting. A wonderful way to start a Sunday!
