The Kommo Toera Trail

Multiple Locations

This magnificent walking track allows you to meander under the shade of towering Melaleuca trees to observe a distinctly unique wetland ecosystem.

To access the walk, drive 15 minutes north of Mackay towards the Mackay Marina along Harbour Road. Turn left on Slade Point Road and once you reach the Melaleuca forest, turn left onto Keeleys Road. The trail is approximately one kilometre long, and takes approximately 50 minutes to complete.

Keep an eye out for the tree-top storm debris which embedded itself amongst the tree tops during a wind storm. The debris has been up there for more than 20 years, surviving many wet season cyclones.
As it is an active eco-system, watch your footing as snake sightings are common in this area. If you do encounter a snake on the trail, remain still and allow it to pass.

Insect repellent is extremely advisable as this area has a very prominent mosquito population. There are no fresh water stations or toilets along this walk. The nearest public facilities can be found further along Keeleys Road, which turns into Oak Street, at the Andergrove Shopping Centre, or at the Mackay Marina or Slade Point Beach.

The Kommo Toera Trail

The Kommo Toera Trail talks you along a boardwalk through wetlands and Melalecua Rainforest. It's a natural wonderland where you can discover a unique combination of flora and fauna all around you. The trail is pram and wheel chair friendly, making for the perfect day out and only taking about 50 minutes to an hour to complete at a leisurely pace. It's a special place where you'll find peace and tranquillity but do pack plenty of insect repellent as after a rainy day there are plenty of mosquitoes!
