Walk

Starting from the Flaxton walkers’ camp in Kondalilla National Park, this walk takes you to the Ubajee campsite via the second section of the Sunshine Hinterland Great Walk, visiting Baxter and Mapleton Falls along the way. Get ready for a cool trip in the rainforest with heaps of canopy to shelter you from the sun on a hot summer day. Combined with the classic bushland parts, this diversity of fauna is favoured by many hikers. Both waterfalls have swimming holes that you can cool off in, but Baxter Falls is relatively more secluded than Mapleton. Speaking of, you can avoid the crowds by coming early. You’ll be able to hear kookaburras, owls and bellbirds as you make your way to Ubajee. Goannas can also be spotted basking in the sun or moving about along the track. Keep in mind that there may be an abundant number of leeches after recent rain. A moderate level of fitness and decent footwear 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.
