Wongabel Botanic Walk:

How to get there:

  • Follow the Kennedy Highway out of Atherton, travelling eight kilometres south. 
  • The Wongabel Botanical Walk is located on the eastern side of the highway in the Wongabel State Forest.
  • The walk is 2.6 kilometres long and is suggested to last two to three hours if each tree is studied.
  •  It is a gentle, easy walk which is designed to give you the opportunity to learn about rainforest trees.
  •  Often it is difficult to see the whole tree in the rainforest, especially when the canopy is dense.
  • Thus trees are often identified by the characteristics on their lower trunk. 
  • These characteristics are shown and explained along the way, even small tests are given to check your recall.
  • There are 190 trees labelled on the walk, most located on the main path, with a few straying off the path on minor avenues. 
  • The trees are labelled with their common name and botanic name for those interested, and a detailed information sheet is available from the Queensland Forestry Department located behind the Police Station in Atherton.
