Enjoy a different Whitsunday experience and escape to the tropical refuge of the Conway Ranges in Conway National Park. This park contains lowland tropical rainforest remnants and picturesque rocky creeks.
Stroll down an old logging road through tall, lush rainforest and notice seedlings fighting for light in small clearings. After veering left, you will reach a calm creek lined with Alexandra palms. You might catch a glimpse of a little kingfisher and hear the deep, resonating calls of wompoo fruit-doves. The Wompoo Walk is the start of the Whitsunday Great Walk.
The track is closed during the wet season from February to March. Between April and September, conditions are less likely to be very wet or too dry.
