'Wom-poo' is the sound made by the beautifully coloured Wompoo fruit-dove, so listen and see if you can spot one. The Conway National Park covers 225-kilometres of lowland tropical rainforest and a number of walking trails on the Conway Circuit have been created. Follow an old logging road 2.4-kilometres through tall, lush rainforest. Turn left to reach a calm creek lined with Alexandra palms. This 7-kilometre return walk has a few steep sections, shallow creek crossings after rain, plentiful wildlife and will take you about four-hours to complete. The walking track is shared with mountain-bike and Segway tours.
Closed annually from 1 February to 31 March and subject to seasonal closures.
Getting there: Brandy Creek Road is located about half-way between Airlie Beach and Proserpine off Shute Harbour Road. Follow Brandy Creek Road to the Forestry Road carpark.
Wear walking shoes and take drinking water, insect-repellent, sunscreen and a hat. Let someone know where you're going when you visit the Australian bush. Mobile phone coverage may be weak or non-existent.
Follow the Conway circuit (an old logging road) 2.3 kilometres from the Forestry Road car park and then turn left onto the Wompoo way turn-off to reach a calm creek lined with Alexandra palms. Listen for wompoo fruit-doves calling from the canopy.
