Kauri Creek Rainforest walk is located within the Danbulla National Park and State Forest in the central Atherton Tablelands. Crater lakes, huge strangler figs, rainforest walks, lakeside camping areas and places of important local history are some of the interesting features along the 28 kilometres Danbulla Forest Drive.
The 5.1 kilometre Kauri Creek Rainforest Circuit track starts at the Kauri Creek day-use area. The first part of the walk winds through rainforest along the bank of Kauri Creek. The track then crosses the creek (be prepared to get your feet wet!) and passes through forest before joining an old logging road. You have another chance to dip your toes in the sandy-bottomed Kauri Creek before joining the return track, which is steep and narrow in places and should be undertaken only by fit and experienced walkers. Keep to the walking track at all times. The 5.1 kilometre track has amoderate grade and takes about 2.5 hours walking time.
