Starting from the car park at the end of Josephine Falls Road, this walk takes you to the Broken Nose peak and back mostly via the Bartle Frere Trail, crossing Majuba Creek along the way. Around 950 metres above the ground, the Broken Nose provides you with an exceptional bird’s eye view over the hinterland and surrounding mountains. This hike can be considered training before the lengthy and challenging Mount Bartle Frere hike, with some parts of it as steep. The gorgeous rainforest provides you shade throughout the track, with interesting fungi species on trees for you to observe. Additionally, you can cool off in the suitable spots along the creek, or visit the rock pools of Josephine Falls after the journey. Speaking of, the creek crossing may require you to get your feet wet as well. The Big Rock Camp along the way offers a creekside night in the rainforest, if you’d like to make this a multi-day journey. Make sure there is no rain before, during or after your journey as the rocks and tree roots along the track become slippery and dangerous. Besides, there will be an unbelievable amount of leeches in wet conditions. The track may require a bit of rock scrambling. 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.
