Description

Kingfisher Circuit walk is located within the Conway National Park. This park includes the rainforest-clad Conway Peninsula and protects the largest area of lowland tropical rainforest in Queensland outside Tropical North Queensland. Hoop pines grow on coastal ridges and in damp gullies, emerging above the rainforest canopy. Rugged, steep, rocky cliffs provide a spectacular 35 kilometre-long backdrop to the Whitsunday Passage and islands.

Access to the Kingfisher Circuit is from Forestry Road car park. Pick up a self-guide brochure at the start of this two kilometre walk to learn about forest wildlife, including the fascinating buff-breasted paradise-kingfisher. From the car park, walkers will wind down into a moist rainforest valley then ascend to an old logging road. Turn right to return to the car park or left for the Wompoo Walk. (Please return the brochure when finished.) Kingfisher Circuit walk is of a moderate grade.
