Description

Rainforest, windswept hillsides, rocky headlands with majestic hoop pines, sandy beaches and secluded coves make Molle Islands National Park a scenic retreat for nature lovers.

Located on the Northern side of South Molle, the Spion Kop track leads through eucalypt forest, rainforest and open grasslands. A seasonal colony of flying foxes can sometimes be seen and heard early on in the walk.

The track passes through an area of shattered rock high on the hillside. This is an Aboriginal stone quarry of the Ngaro people. The stone here is a fine grain volcanic rock and was used for making weapons and tools.

One of the most spectacular parts of this walk are the views not only from the saddle of the mountain but from the lookout on Spion Kop. From the lookout you can take in spectacular views of Hook, Whitsunday, Hamilton, Dent, Pine, Planton and Long Islands to the east.
