Starting from Mulgrave River Forestry Road, Wooroonooran, this walk takes you to The Boulders Lookout and rock pools via the Goldfield Trail, exploring the rainforest of Wooroonooran NP along the way. This trail was used by gold miners that were travelling to the mining areas in Goldsborough Valley back in the time - hence the name Goldfield. As you walk along the same track that is now surrounded by beautiful king ferns, try to go back to their time and imagine what the environment used to look like then. The rainforest is home to many animals including boars(pigs) and cassowaries. There are multiple campsites, one along the way and one at each end of the track. You can stay the night and even make this a return trip if you’d like to. Don’t forget to pack your swimmers to be able to enjoy the rock pools along Babinda Creek, especially at the end. Expect to get your feet wet as four of the crossings are around knee-level. Sandals may come in handy. A decent level of fitness is recommended. You can bring secateurs to help you on the track, but remember to bring bushmans spray no matter what. 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.
