The coastal range rises from the southern and western part of Byfield State Forest while the northern and eastern parts feature large areas of wallum swamp that are inaccessible during the wet season.
Pockets of rainforest thrive along the range and along Water Park Creek, a major stream running into Corio Bay to the east. Located beside Water Park Creek, Bowenia Rainforest Circuit winds through tall turpentine forest featuring an endangered and ancient fern-like cycad found nowhere else - the Byfield Fern (Bowenia serrulata).
There are wheelchair-accessible toilets at Water Park Creek. Assistance may be required.
How To Get There
Byfield State Forest is 34 kilometres north of Yeppoon via Yeppoon-Byfield Road. A sealed road to Water Park Creek is well marked from the Yeppoon-Byfield Road. There are short gravel or dirt sections. Drive with caution as trucks carrying timber share State forest roads.
