Boulder Creek Falls

Boulder Creek walk

If you are not up to the long walks, Boulder Creek is a nice wet season walk where you may find banded fruit doves and spangled drongos.

Near the start of this walk is Plum Tree Creek, which is just a sandy creek bed during the dry season. It is named after mindu, the billygoat plum. Birn-birndok (striated pardalotes) and wirrirtwirrirt (rainbow bee-eaters) nest in the banks of this creek.

After passing through open woodland, the track leads to Boulder Creek, which is lined with a monsoon forest. Follow the markers over the boulders across the creek and back to the carpark, or detour to the Yurmikmik lookout.

2 kms return | 45 minutes

Moderate walk on marked track
