Blackdown Tableland rises abruptly 800 meters above the surrounding plains. Many different plants have evolved in the cooler, moister climate and nutrient deficient soil. There are 4 walks ranging from 2 to 4 kilometres, short but interesting and each with it’s own character. With two nights in the National Park we were able to walk all four.
Gudda Gumoo (Rainbow Falls)
An 8 km drive along a rough dirt road from the camp ground, a 2 km walk and a 240 step descent and we were at the Rainbow Falls.
Munall camping area
The camping area is a quiet, shady area with well separated sites. There’s toilets but nothing else. The road in was corrugated and churned up, 4WD recommended.
Goon Goon Dina (Cultural Circuit)
A 2.5 km circuit passing remains of early settlers stockyards and the ancient rock art of the Ghungalu people.
Mook Mook (Owl) Track
2.4 km return follows the Mimosa Creek to the edge of the Tableland.
Goodela (Eagle) Walk
Drier, sandier and more exposed than the other tracks, the flora changes on this 3.6 km walk to the escarpment through eucalypt forest.
