Mackay Highlands Great Walk Information
Stunning scenery including dense rainforest, deep gorges, steep escarpments and tranquil farming communities make the Mackay Highlands Great Walk a very special experience. The track traverses Eungella National Park, Crediton State Forest, and Homevale Resources Reserve and National Park.
Eungella National Park is a nature lover's paradise as it is located close to the boundary between subtropical and tropical rainforest, the area supports species from both vegetation types. Starting at Eungella township, some of the walk's highlights include a magnificent rainforest of red cedar, massive Mackay tulip oak, and groves of piccabeen and Alexandra palms.
Views of the Pioneer Valley are a feature from several locations along the walk, and you might even catch a glimpse of a platypus from the cool banks of Broken River. Further along, the track will enter mixed eucalypt forests featuring fragrant lemon-scented gums, bloodwoods, ironbarks, banksias and stunning grasstrees.
