Visiting Hallorans Hill safely
Atherton township is 84km from Cairns via the Gillies Highway or 100km via the Kuranda Range. To walk to the summit of Hallorans Hill, follow the track which starts at the council park on Louise Street. To drive, follow the signs from Robert Street or Dalziel Avenue.
Hallorans Hill Conservation Park has no wheelchair-accessible facilities. Some wheelchair-accessible facilities are available in the adjacent council park on the summit. For more information, see the tourism information links.
- Avoid stinging trees. These plants grow to 4m high and have large, heart-shaped leaves with serrated edges. Do not touch these plants as it will result in a very painful sting. If you are stung and symptoms are severe, seek medical advice.
- Stay on the track and take care on uneven surfaces, especially in wet conditions.
- Always carry water, wear a hat and sturdy footwear, and try to walk in the cooler part of the day.
