Winding through the spectacular Blackall Range, a cool retreat in the hinterland of Queensland's Sunshine Coast, the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk traverse some of Queensland's most scenic natural areas in Kondalilla and Mapleton Falls National Park and Mapleton Forest Reserve.
Walk traverses the very best of the Blackall Range with three overnight walkers' camps. Campsites must be booked in advance. Day visitors can access sections of the great walk for shorter walks.

The Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great!Walk is a clearly marked track with a generally firm and stable surface.
The 58 kilometres multi-day adventure has been broken up into three sections: Baroon, Mapleton Falls and Delicia sections. Detailed information is available on the EPA website and the EPA topographic map available for purchase.
Track conditions may worsen during bad weather conditions (such as high rainfall), making walking slower, harder and more tiring. Walking bridges have been built over some creek crossings, but not all. Do not attempt creek crossings during times of high rainfall - flash floods can occur.
Do not leave food for native birds and animals.
Obi Obi Creek flows into Baroon Pocket Dam - the main water source for Caloundra and Maroochydore. Soap, detergent, skin creams, urine and food scraps affect water purity. Hybrid toilets can be found at all walkers camps and picnic areas along the Great!Walk.
Carry gas or liquid spirit stoves for cooking, as open fires are not allowed. Mobile phone coverage on the Great Walk is unreliable. Be prepared for fire dangers. Bushfires pose a threat to walkers and can occur without warning.
Sub-tropical weather makes this area a pleasant place to visit for most of the year.
