Mount Allan from Charlie Moreland Campground
Starting from Sunday Creek Road in Charlie Moreland Campground, Kenilworth, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Allan and back via the Mount Allan Fire Trail, exploring the woodlands of Imbil State Forest and Conondale NP. Take in the rewarding 360 views over the pine forest after you conquer the challenging ascent. The cozy fire tower atop the summit lets you enjoy unimpeded views of the surrounding area. You may come across wallabies and crimson rosellas as you make your way through the dense forest, along with a nice surprise of monarch butterflies if you’re lucky. The sound of cicadas will accompany you if you’re here in summer. In fact, don’t forget to bring your swimmers as the campground features a beach-like sandy area near the waterhole along Little Yabba Creek. The wide, well-formed track gives you a great leg workout on the ascent, and tests your knees and ankles on the way down. Therefore, proper hiking boots with ankle support can come in handy along with hiking poles to ease the pressure on your knees. An above average level of fitness is recommended. 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.
