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.
Sand, wind and water have sculpted a varied landscape, the largest remnant of coastal vegetation on the southern Queensland's mainland. High sand dunes, coloured sand cliffs, sweeping beaches, sandblows, freshwater lakes, tall forests, paperbark swamps and wildflower heath make this a spectacular part of the Cooloola Recreation Area.
The Cooloola Wilderness Trail is a 47.9 kilometre one-way walking trail taking three to five days to complete. It's of a difficult grade. It's made up of various other walks - please see the website listed for detailed notes on the Cooloola Wilderness Trail. The northern end of the trail is Mullens car park and the southern end is Elanda Point.
From Mullens car park to Harry's camping area the trail crosses the western catchment and Noosa Plain. Tall eucalypt and banksia forests on deep sandy soils give way to low wallum on shallow soils. From Harry's camping area to Elanda Point, the trail passes through remnant rainforest on the rich soils along Kin Kin Creek, and paperbark and cabbage palm wetlands on adjacent waterlogged plains.
The Cooloola Wilderness Trail is managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service. Please note that this map only shows an indicative start point for the walk from Elanda. The track route and end point are not shown and this map cannot be used for navigation purposes. Please see the Queensland National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing web site for detailed maps and the latest park information, including opening hours and safety messages. When you are in the park, make sure you refer to signs at the start of the track for more information.
