About the event

A morning to enjoy the bird songs, piccabean palms and joyful conversations with other adventurous women. This is an 9.7KM hike that is a down and up circuit in the Mapleton ranges. If you are feeling extremly adventurous you can hop in the stream. We will spot halfway and share morning tea together and coffee and tea.

We might come across large monitor lizards racing up trees, cascade frogs and lots of birdlife as well. Over 295 species have been counted including, finches, robins, woodswallows, honeyeaters, wrens and much more. SUITABILITY This is a shared path for walkers, horseriders and mountain bikers. At the starting point there are dedicated parks for horsefloats. Note: the first half of the trail drops 200m in elevation.

TRAIL HIGHLIGHTS On horse, bike or foot, travel through this tall, thriving and open forest as you make your way down the hill. About halfway around the the circuit, take a short walk (400m return) down to see Kureelpa Falls. Here you’ll discover water from the South Maroochy River cascading over boulders before falling 30m into a hidden gorge.

HOW TO GET THERE To the starting point: There are 2 ways to access this trail and the falls. 1) From Mapleton township take the Obi Obi Road and turn right into Delicia Road. Shortly thereafter turn right into Mapleton Forest Road, which is a dirt road but generally ok for 2WD and recreational bikes. Follow this road for about 2 km and you will come to Lookout Road on your left and then the Mapleton Day Use area, set amongst towering Blackbutts. The Kureelpa Falls Circut starts from here.
