Karboora Track

Multiple Locations

The Karboora Track is located within Naree Budjong Djara National Park. The park features places of incredible conservation value and a variety of special habitats, including endangered heathlands, freshwater lakes and woodlands. These habitats are home to threatened animal species including the Cooloola sedgefrog Litoria cooloolensis, the black-necked stork Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus, and the endangered swift parrot Lathamus discolor.

The 5.2 kilometre return Karboora Track (also known as Blue Lake) passes through wallum woodlands with stunted eucalypt trees, wallum banksias and a heath understorey. The edges of the lake are thickly vegetated with eucalypts, banksias and sedges, making it a haven for birds such as honeyeaters and lorikeets. The lake supports waterbirds, such as grebes and ducks, as well as several species of native freshwater fish including rainbowfish and gudgeons. Fortunate visitors may catch sight of a golden wallaby Wallabia bicolor-a form of swamp wallaby. This walk is an easy grade; however, the path is loose sand and can be hot in summer. Allow two hours to complete the walk.

Karboora 'deep silent pool' is a place of significant cultural value to the Quandamooka people and they request that visitors respect that significance by not swimming in the lake.
