The Koolmoon Creek walk is part of the Misty Mountain wilderness walking trails, a 130 kilometre network of short and long wilderness tracks takes visitors through pristine, high altitude rainforest with crystal clear creeks, waterfalls and panoramic views.
The Misty Mountains walking tracks cross the Walter Hill Range and the Cardwell Range, extending from the coastal plain to the tablelands. The area forms part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and is recognised for its diversity of rainforest types, plant species and outstanding landscape features.... more
The Koolmoon Creek track leads through Tully Falls and Tully Gorge national parks from near Ravenshoe to Cochable Creek camping area, north-west of Tully. Sections of some of the track are accessible for shorter walks. Walkers are advised to arrange vehicle pick up from the end of their walk because Tully Falls Road is narrow and winding and dangerous for pedestrians.
The Misty Mountain wilderness walking track network is intended for visitors with medium to advanced bushwalking and navigation skills. Walkers may be required to find their way along indistinct tracks in remote locations. All walkers should carry maps and navigation equipment. Walkers must be well-prepared, self-sufficient and are responsible for their own safety. Inform a responsible person of your walking plans and when you expect to return. Carry at least one reliable form of communciation equipment. Satellite phones and personal locator beacons (PLBs) are the most effective.
