Cooloola Great Walk, Cooloola, Great Sandy National Park

Multiple Locations

The Cooloola Great Walk traverses the Cooloola Recreation Area, Great Sandy National Park, and showcases the very best of Cooloola's outstanding natural attractions.

Immerse yourself in nature for five days as you hike this remote 102 kilometre trail through Cooloola’s rainforest, coastal woodland and heath-clad plains. Linking Noosa North Shore with Rainbow Beach, the Great Walk will take you over the eastern high dunes of the Cooloola sandmass, between the pristine upper Noosa River and the coast.

Climb over vast sandblows, discover perched lakes and long sandy beaches and be rewarded with sweeping views of the Cooloola coastline. Along the way, glimpse snakes, skinks, lizards, emus and echidnas, and admire the views from many natural lookouts. Relax at night in the four walkers’ camps—Brahminy, Dutgee, Litoria and Kauri—where it’s only you and the wildlife.

Ensure you carry a topographic map and have experience in navigation and remote bushwalking before you attempt this challenging walk.
