Starting from the Consuelo campground in Carnarvon Park, this walk takes you to the Cabbage Tree campground via the fifth section of the 87 km Carnarvon Great Walk, exploring the Consuelo Tableland along the way. The said tableland is home to Heavenly, Foley’s and Ferntree springs -- which are spread throughout the tableland, naturally concealed. These springs were once utilized by the Aboriginal people of the time as well as the stockmen that came afterwards. Explore the refreshing forest on your way to the Cabbage Tree campsite. Keep in mind that you’ll need a permit to access Carnarvon Park and the said campsites. This walk is closed from the 1st of November to the last day of February. Bring some insect repellent to protect yourself from the mozzies(Australian slang for mosquitoes). Let us begin by acknowledging the Bidjara & Karingbal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
