Daves Creek circuit, Lamington National Park

Multiple Locations

Branching off the Border track, you’ll wind through an amazing variety of forests types. From lush rainforest to towering eucalypts, and sparse mallee woodland to colourful montane heath, this walk is a botanical delight.

Enjoy magnificent views of Springbrook, Mount Hobwee, the Araucaria lookout and Numinbah Valley. Stop in the cool shade for lunch at Picnic Creek or beside a trickling waterfall. Have your camera ready because the falls have spectacular displays of delicate wind spray. Keep an eye out for Surprise Rock—a volcanic dyke made of hardy trachyte, which is able to withstand erosion.

This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species).
