Walk thru a lovely wetlands area with bird life all around and the sound of frogs singing in your ears.

SUITABLILITY
This location is suitable for walkers of all levels as there are a series of loops possible and they are all relatively flat.

HIGHLIGHTS
This is a quiet little walk with great views and many a different bird to spot along the way. From the Dusky Mororhen which abounds to the rarer sighting of the White-necked Heron every day is a new potential sighting. All along the way there is a very good chance the frogs will be calling as you enjoy your morning walk. Also try and get out here on a foggy morning for a different walk yet again where you’re in your own little world.

AFTERWARDS
Continue along the Maleny Trail and the Obi Obi Creek, if you are early enough you might spot a resident Platypus at one of the many viewing areas. Grab brunch in town then walk back to the car to have the Full Maleny Trail experience. Also stop by the Pattemore house on your way out for some local history.

HOW TO GET THERE

Drive past Pattemore House to the giant fig at the bottom of the road. Park and walk across the road
To the end point: The end point is the same as the starting point.
