Douglas and Djina-Wu Track
4 h 30 min, 8 h 30 min to 2 days
Starting from the end of Euodia Close, Barron Gorge, this walk takes you to the Speewah Campground and back via the Douglas and Djina-Wu tracks, visiting Glacier Lookout along the way. The said lookout provides you an exceptional and panoramic view over Cairns. Take your time and maybe try to name all the peaks you can see from here. As you continue your hike through this gorgeous rainforest, you may come across cassowaries and wild boars along with cute little echidnas. Treat them with care and keep your distance to be safe. The Speewah Campground midway can be a great spot to spend the night in nature. It has toilets, bbqs and showers for you to use, but don’t forget to book your stay beforehand. Don’t forget to bring swimmers so you can cool off in Stoney Creek after the hike. The area may be busy on weekends, so schedule for a weekday to avoid the crowd. 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.
