“The 56km Mackay Highlands Great Walk is a must-do for any seasoned Queensland hiker but if you’re short of time, this might walk can be cut into sections perfect for a weekend excursion.”
Try the Pine Grove to Broken River section to start with. This is a fairly easy 10 km (one way) walk through lush rainforest across the Clarke Range. Have a picnic at Broken River before heading onto Fern Flat where you can choose to pitch a tent for the night. Another, more challenging section reserved for experienced walkers is Crediton Hall to Denham Range. Wind your way through farm land, up to a rainforest and through Crediton State Forest on this 19.5km (one way) track. Spectacular views await at Denham Range camping area. These walks can be rugged and remote so wear appropriate clothing and carry plenty of food, water and a first aid kit. Walk only between April and September to avoid wet and dry weather extremes.
