Barker Creek Scenic Circuit
Starting from the car park at the end of Bunya Avenue, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Bunya Mountains National Park, crossing multiple creeks and visiting several lookouts & waterfalls along the way. You’ll have the option to visit the Barker Creek Lookout and a colossal strangler fig that you can literally go through. Expect a leisurely hike that pushes you just the right amount as you go through the dense subtropical rainforest. From lovely waterfalls to panoramic picturesque views, this quiet walk through nature disconnects you from the thrum of modern life with ease. The area is home to colourful bird species such as Pittas and a dab of the exceptional Victoria’s Riflebird. The waterfalls are best viewed after some decent rainfall, but this leads to an increased number of leeches. Remember to bring a raincoat regardless of the forecast. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
