Starting from the car park at the end of Arkaroo Rock Road, Upalinna, this circuit walk leads past Arkaroo Rock via the Arkaroo Rock Walking Track. For a fascinating Aboriginal cultural experience, enjoy an entertaining and informative walk to Arkaroo Rock, a small cave with ancient aboriginal paintings located at the base of the Wilpena Pound, in the southern part of the Flinders Ranges National Park. Retelling the story of the creation of Wilpena Pound, the paintings are found on the underside of the huge rock, which remained undiscovered by European settlers until 1957. The area was a meeting place for the Adnyamathanha people, who believe that the paintings were produced by ancestral beings. The rock art is protected by a cage, but camera lenses can easily fit through the cage wire. The journey from the car park takes you through a variety of native vegetation and large rock formations, navigating over small rock steps and bridges towards Arkaroo Rock. There are seats along the way where you can take a break and enjoy the views. There is clear signage throughout the trail, as well as interpretive signage at the carpark trailhead detailing the significance of the paintings. Sturdy shoes are recommended, as some sections are very rocky. 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.

Starting from the Booloumba Creek Day Use Area, Kenilworth, this walk takes you to the Artists Cascades and back via the Conondale Range Great Walk Track, visiting the Strangler Cairn and potentially the abandoned gold mine along the way. Try to allow as many hours as possible to this walk as you won’t understand how much time has passed whilst enjoying the lovely swimming spot at the end. Besides the refreshing water, the track offers possible side trips to a unique cairn and a historic gold mine from the 1920s. Additionally, the wildlife in the area include goannas, skinks and wallabies as well as different species of snakes. Scan the treetops for a chance to spot yellow robins and black cockatoos. All in all, this adventure of a walk is rated amongst the best walks in eastern Queensland. Keep in mind that the track can be quite slippery when wet, along with an increased number of leeches. Depending on the weather and track conditions, you may need to park your vehicle 2-3 kilometres up north and cross Booloumba Creek (twice) on foot unless you have a 4WD vehicle with good clearance.

Ashbrook Fire Trail

Return

Walk
3h 30 min to 5h

Starting from the Flints car park off Tidbinbilla Reserve Road, Paddys River, this walk crosses Tidbinbilla River, Ashbrook Creek and Mountain Creek via the Ashbrook Fire Trail, then heads back to the start. Explore the mixed Eucalypt woodland as you enjoy a little bit of Aboriginal history. You’ll visit 2 scar(red) trees near the track, which have their bark removed in the shape of a shield. The Aboriginal people used these barks to make canoes, traps and shelters as well. Fellow (kanga)roos can be spotted throughout the journey, with a chance to see some interesting birdlife near the ponds and creeks. Enjoy this stroll in nature as the singular wide fire trail lets you focus on your surroundings. Although, take care on the crossings as the water level can reach ankle-height in colder months. Thus, waterproof shoes may come in handy. Keep in mind that the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve requires a pass, which can be acquired daily or annual. This journey can be made into a one-way trip if you arrange transport. You can also reverse the direction if you’d like to.

Badjirrijirra Walk Trail
6.6 km
Circuit

Walk
2h to 3h

Starting from the Thomas Carter Lookout car park off Charles Knife Road, Cape Range National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit past the Shothole Lookout via the Badjirrijirra Trail. The Thomas Carter Lookout is the start and end of the Badjirrijirra Trail, a moderately difficult loop that traverses the top of Cape Range. Starting high in the range, the trail winds through a largely barren landscape of rocky gullies, small gorges and open spinifex bushland, leading to spectacular views down into the epic Shothole Canyon. There is a clear trailhead at the start of the walk, with waypoint poles and signs at trail junctions. The walk is mostly along a gently undulating terrain, with some steep ascents and descents. The trail has some rough uneven surfaces and there is no shade along the way, requiring a moderate to high level of fitness. The conditions of Cape Range are harsh, with temperatures often soaring over 40°C in summer. Hiking isn't advised between December and March due to extreme heat and limited resources within the park, so either avoid hiking at those times of year, or start out very early in the day. Hikers are advised to take caution when exploring, wear suitable footwear and clothing, carry plenty of water and notify a friend or park ranger before leaving. 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.
