Full description
The tour departs vibrant Airlie Beach and heads deep into Conway National Park where your bushwalk adventure begins. Venture into Australia’s famous ancient rainforest and learn about the colorful wildlife that calls this fascinating landscape their home. Keep a lookout for Paradise Kingfishers as they fly beneath the vast forest canopy and listen to your guide share stories about the native flora and fauna in the park.

Follow the track through the rainforest and then veer off towards Wompoo Way, a tranquil clearing with a beautiful creek. Enjoy the chance to spot a Wompoo Fruit Dove or Ulysses Butterfly, and settle into the shade for a picnic lunch. Spend some time resting to recharge for the walk ahead, and soak up the magical atmosphere of the natural and peaceful surrounds.

Continue the tour with an uphill walk to complete the 8 km circuit of the day, and then find yourself at the stunning Cedar Creek Falls. At the creek, spend the afternoon against the tranquil backdrop of the waterfall, perch on a rock to watch the adorable turtles, or cool off from the humid weather with an invigorating swim in the water.
