Description

Zamia Walk is located within Mount Archer National Park. Mount Archer National Park protects bushland remnants in the Berserker Ranges, a scenic backdrop to Rockhampton. At 604 metre above sea level, Mount Archer is the highest peak and provides spectacular views of the city and the surrounding ranges. The park covers 4,250 hectares of open forest and woodland communities dominated by eucalypts, with a large pocket of dry rainforest in the deeply incised Moores Creek valley. The dry rainforest communities are areas of high conservation value and include several plant species with restricted distributions.

The 14 kilometre one-way Zamia Walk is a long descent from the top of Mount Archer, through the national park to the park's lower entrance. It is best to walk this track from top to bottom and arrange to be picked up at the lower exit at German Street. Allow up to five hours to complete this walk of a difficult grade. Mount Archer is home to a variety of woodland birds including vulnerable powerful owls. Glossy black-cockatoos can also be seen feeding on she-oak seeds. If you wait quietly, you may see unadorned rock-wallabies come to drink from Moores Creek in the early morning and late afternoon. Keep alert and remain quiet-you might be surprised by what you find at Mount Archer.
