Paperbark Trail

Multiple Locations

The clicking and humming of distinctive frog calls will provide nature's soundtrack as you weave your way around the circular paperbark trail in Reedy Creek Reserve.

Just minutes from brilliant beaches at Agnes Waters, a kaleidoscope of butterflies and brilliantly coloured fungi are waiting to be discovered in this lush coastal environment.

It might be only 400 metres long but it's an exciting trail with varied ups and downs, steps, boardwalk sections and water crossings in this much loved wet area where frogs thrive.

A picnic table at the start/finish of the walk makes a great spot for a cuppa and the walk is open to the public all year round (safety permitting).

Get the kids to play park ranger on this fun walk and try to spot the friarbirds, flying foxes and lorikeets in this enchanted paperbark forest.

Full Itinerary

Paperbark Trail

To reach the trail, follow Springs Road from the town of Agnes Water. Look out for the large Reedy Creek Reserve sign which leads you to a gravel car park on the right hand side of Springs Road. The start of Paperbark Trail is marked by wooden bollards. This unique trail is about 400 metres long so it's best to allow about 45 minute for a comfortable walk, however most walkers complete the trail in less than half an hour. Along the way you'll encounter stepping stones, narrow walkways and rough surfaces.

Whilst the walk is suitable for most ages and fitness levels, it is not suitable for people with limited mobility, balance or prams.
