Barker Creek Circuit

Multiple Locations

Barker Creek Circuit passes Paradise, Little and Tim Shea falls and through stunning Bunya Mountains rainforest, eucalypt forest and grasslands. The track can be accessed from Dandabah or Paradise car park. Take the 750 metre side track out to Big Falls lookout to view the falls and the valley to the north-east. Have lunch on the grassy bald above Big Falls and view Barker Creek Gorge. Along the gently undulating climb, look for the local Mowbullan whitewood trees with their mottled green, white and grey bark.

See colourful noisy pittas searching for a snail meal. Listen to the flocks of topknot pigeons feeding in the treetops, or hear the loud call of the whipbird and the mournful cry of the catbird. In summer, pink flowers from the lacebark tree litter the forest floor.
