Why this Hike

This hike in rural Queensland along the edge of Lake Bindegolly is a fantastic way to place yourself in the local environment. With sandy tracks and small, fragile vegetation this track can give you a greater understanding of the area including it's bird life from the viewing platform.

Track Notes & Overview

Starting from the park's carpark the first 4.5km of the walk is well marked with little shade all the way to the bird watching platform. The track is firm and slightly sandy and past the bird viewing platform the track continues, roughly following the lakes edge but not as well marked. Even with the worse markings the track is relatively easy to follow but do make sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen for the walk as the lack of shade can burn and dehydrate you quickly. Following the track past the sand hills, continue to walk the circuit until returning back to the carpark where you started the hike.


*Please note that when the lake is full some parts of the track may be covered and inaccessible.
