The Goldfield trail follows a 19km historic path through the rainforest of Wooroonooran National Park. It crosses numerous picturesque creeks and climbs over a low saddle between Queensland’s two highest peaks, Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker.
North-west end 46km south of Cairns, south-east end 58km south of Cairns.
The Goldfield trail passes through the country of the Dulabed Malanbarra Yidinji Aboriginal people, and closer to the Boulders Scenic Reserve, through the country of the Wanyurr Majay Aboriginal people. The Traditional Owners welcome you and ask that you respect this special place.
