Starting from the carpark on Montreal Street, Fremantle, this walk takes you on a short circuit within Booyeembara Park. Booyeembara Park is a gorgeous park that blends landscaping with environmental restoration. 'Booyeembara' is a local Aboriginal word which means 'of the limestone hills.' Years of excavation has transformed the area into a very different landscape. The land, which was once a quarry and a tip, has been reborn as sixteen hectares of public open space. The park has plenty of open space, bushland, walking trails and a central man-made lake. Located within the park is a decent sized playground, a skate park and an installation of exercise equipment. There are also a couple of BBQs, but no picnic tables or shelters. Toilets are situated close to the playground up a steep embankment, next to the carpark. Entry is via one of several paths down to the paved circuit that forms the basis of the park. Just around the corner is a path leading to a jetty sitting on the upper lake. The trail loops around the upper lake and then makes its way back down to the lower lake. Booyeembara Park has plenty to offer, despite this loop being just over a kilometre. Any fitness fanatic would love the well-maintained paths and the exercise equipment on the western edge. For those that are after some peace, the idyllic setting of the lake is a very relaxing place to be. There are a few quiet spots around the lake to sit down and enjoy the scenery, or just relax in the shade reading a book. There is also the option of dirt paths that extend past the upper lake for those that want to add some extra length to their walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Circuit

Walk
20min to 45min

Starting from Lamington National Park Road, O’Reilly, this circuit walk takes you up next to the rainforest canopy via a boardwalk consisting of 9 suspension bridges, standing 15 metres above the ground. Be prepared to embark on a small journey on the world’s first treetop walk, built by Peter O’Reilly and Peter Main along with the help of GMNHA(Green Mountains Natural Historic Association) in 1987. There are more than 160 bird species along with other wildlife residing in the lush rainforests of Lamington, and this track will let you observe them like you’ve never done before. Eastern whipbirds, catbirds and Australian logrunners will be sitting next to the boardwalk, along with heaps of rosellas. Informative signposts along the way won’t let you miss out on the interesting flora as well. There is also a ladder midway through the walk, where the adventurous can climb up and come to another deck that is an astounding 30 metres above ground. The experience is completely free, but if you want to help out with managing the track you can drop a few coins in the donation box at the end.

Starting from Lamington National Park Road, O’Reilly, this walk takes you to the Binna Burra Mountain Lodge Campsite via the Border Track, visiting many lookouts and waterfalls along the way. Embark on a 20km+ journey through the interchanging vegetation of Lamington National Park that is full of views and refreshing landmarks. The singular well-signposted and shaded track combined with the forgiving gradient makes this walk suitable for more. Keep an eye out for the gorgeous antarctic beech trees near Mount Wanungara. The lookouts provide different points of view over the land, with some letting you see all the way to the Gold Coast. There are cafes and accommodation options on both ends, so you can make this into a multi-day return walk as well. There is also the Mount Bithongabel Campsite along the track, giving you an option to split the journey up. Good hiking shoes are recommended as some parts of the track are rocky and muddy. Look out for snakes in warmer months. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
