Moderate track
Starting from Woolgoolga Creek Picnic Area, this return walk takes you through subtropical rainforest, along Woolgoolga Creek to Woolgoolga Creek Falls. You'll cross the creek several times so be prepared to get your feet wet. Let us begin by acknowledging the Gumbaynggirr people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
