Walk with a group in a tropical paradise

3rd Wednesday of each month.

On 18th November, we’ll meet at 7.30an  at RACQ Earlville for the drive up to the Tablelands towards Lakes Barrine/Eacham. We walk round Eacham first, approx. 1 hour through some beautiful forest and views across the lake, finishing at the picnic ground, where we have time for a swim and our snacks. Then we carry on to Lake Barrine with a walk of some 1 ½ – 2 hours, finishing back at the popular Teahouse for lunch.  The rainforest up here is beautiful with large Kauri and Fig Trees, wildlife and lots of viewpoints. This will be our last scheduled walk as December will be our Christmas Party.

Please book before (for details, see the bulletin/time table). Please remember that we are still required to comply with social distancing regulations, including:

  • Keeping 1.5 metres distance from each other at all times.  
  • DO NOT attend if you have any signs of illness.
  • Carry your own hand sanitiser.


Our walks are a great way to enjoy the great outdoors, fresh air and exercise, and the company of like-minded people.  We have a varied selection of walks, one each month, which range from easy to moderate to the odd strenuous ones. We have a strong core group who like to meet socially as well. We generally recommend to bring water, hat, strong shoes, sunscreen/repellent and snacks.  

Some of our trips have included:

  • Glacier Rock, both from Speewah and Rainforest Estate
  • Lakes Barrine and Eacham
  • The Bump Track, Port Douglas
  • Mossman Gorge
  • Goldfields Trail, Babinda
  • Behana Gorge
  • Blue, Red and Green Arrow walks
  • White Rock Peak
  • Copperlode
  • Fitzroy Island 
  • and more ….

We always carry drinks and snacks, but if a suitable café is available we will have a light lunch after our walk. 

New members are always welcome.  Stay fit and healthy and enjoy our beautiful bush.  Come and enjoy this beautiful place we live in!
