Cooloola Wilderness Trail

This trail in the Cooloola Section of the Great Sandy National Park offers walkers a wilderness experience of wildflowers, chattering birds, cool clear waterways and solitude. This is a harsh yet stunning coastal environment, where conditions vary greatly, from hot and dry summers to cool winters. Low-lying areas are usually wet all year round.

The northern end of the trail is at Mullens car park and the southern end is at Elanda Point. Both points can be accessed by conventional (two wheel drive) vehicles.

From Mullens car park to Harry's camping area the trail crosses the western catchment and Noosa Plain. Tall eucalypt and banksia forests on deep sandy soils give way to low wallum on shallow soils. From Harry's camping area to Elanda Point, the trail passes through remnant rainforest on the rich deep soils along Kin Kin Creek, and paperbark and cabbage palm wetlands on adjacent waterlogged plains.

For day walks, you can access the trail from the Cooloola Way or Harrys camping and day-use area. Cooloola Way and Harrys Hut Road are recommended for four-wheel-drive vehicles only and weather conditions may limit access.
