Conway Circuit

Multiple Locations

This park has been impacted by recent severe weather events in Queensland. Please check park alerts for the latest information on access, closures and conditions.

This 28 kilometre, challenging one-way circuit was created along the mountain ridge of the Conway National Park. A gruelling exercise, it will take four to five hours on a mountain bike or three days of walking and camping out under a blanket of stars.

You'll be rewarded with a very unique experience including rocky cliffs and spectacular views.

You can start or finish the circuit at either Forestry Road or at Kara Crescent in Airlie Beach. Short circuits run-off the main track at Forestry Road including the two kilometre Kingfisher circuit (walkers only), the seven kilometre Wompoo Walk and the 8.2-kilometre Honeyeater lookout track.

Two camping areas are available, both providing toilets, rainwater tanks and storage trunks to keep food away from wildlife. The circuit changes classification from easy to intermediate to difficult and both riders and walkers need to be fit and experienced to attempt the full length of the circuit. The circuit is closed annually from 1 February to 31 March and subject to seasonal and other closures.
