The track up Walshs Pyramid is steep and rocky, with stunted vegetation that offers no shade. Although a difficult track, walkers who make it to the summit are rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding ranges and local landscape. Return to the start of the walk via the same track. Walkers should take plenty of water, wear sunscreen and a hat, and start the walk in the morning to be sure of returning before it gets dark.

Getting there and getting around

From Cairns travel 25km south along the Bruce Highway, past Gordonvale. About 800m south of the Mulgrave River bridge (Desmond Trannore bridge), turn right onto Moss Road. Follow the signs along this gravel road to the car park where the walking track begins.

Wheelchair accessibility

There are no wheelchair-accessible facilities.
