Melaleuca Track

Woodgate, Bundaberg Area

If you are after bushwalking gold, then stop hunting - the treasure lies right here in the Melaleuca Track.

This walk is a four-hour return journey of softly lapping waves on the sand, native landscape, birds, butterflies and other wildlife with none other than the Melaleuca (which comes from a family of over 300 types of trees - most will be familiar with the common paperbark or tea tree) ending the journey.

Kilometres of quiet beaches run parallel to the track providing a soft ocean soundtrack for your walk and when you wind your way through saltpans, mangroves and swamp you might just spot a Brolga or Jabiru.

Flowering wattle blossoms and other native plants such as the Acacia attracts a diverse range of butterflies and birds such as the Rufous Whistler and Bronze Cuckoo with its distinctive striped underbelly.

This track is part of the Burrum Coast National Park and is easily accessible via Walkers Point Day Camping area or the Burrum Point Camping area (which is only accessible via Four Wheel Drive).

In four hours you can educate yourself in the native flora, fauna and wildlife so unique to the Southern Great Barrier Reef's diverse coastal habitats..

Like a loyal puppy, Labrador has been one of the Gold Coast's mainstays since its hotel was built in 1884.

If you stand along the marina and use a little imagination, you can almost picture the famous Gold Coast white-shoe brigade who put Sanctuary Cove on the map during those crazy, hazy 1980s.
