About the Sunshine Coast Great Walk
You'll enjoy walking past waterfalls, peering into gorges and resting near rock pools. There's some stunning views and wonderful lookouts along the way. Notice the plant communities around you and how they change from warm subtropical rainforest to tall open eucalypt forest; all protected in three beautiful national parks—Kondalilla, Mapleton Falls and Mapleton.
There are more than 100 species of birds, about 70 reptile species and more than 30 frog species—a hinterland habitat that you will share and leave only footprints as you discover the landscape.
Many access points along the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walks that offer different walking options:
- 58.8km long-distance walking with overnighting in the three remote, walkers' camps
- full-day walks with some comfortable holiday house accommodation nearby#
- shorter half-day walks.
# There is a range of holiday accommodation nearby—some provide a Great Walk drop-off and pick-up service for their guests. For more information see tourism information.
