Wompoo Walk is located within 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.... more
Access the Wompoo Walk from the Forestry Road carpark. The seven kilometre return Wompoo Walk is a dual-use track for walkers and mountain-bike riders. Follow an old logging road for 2.4 kilometres through tall, lush rainforest and notice seedlings fighting for light in small clearings. This is the start of the Whitsunday Great Walk. Turn left to 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. Be prepared for uphill sections and shallow creek crossings after rain. (This walk is closed from 1 February to the end of March under the Whitsunday Great Walk annual closure, or subject to seasonal conditions). Allow four hours to complete this walk of a moderate grade.
The Kingfisher Circuit and Wompoo Walk are part of the Whitsunday Great Walk.... less
