Buaraba Creek track begins at the Blackbean day-use area in Ravensbourne National Park, and passes through rainforest and eucalypt forest before ending with a short descent into cool, shady Buaraba Creek. Birdlife is prolific, especially where the rainforest and eucalypt forests meet. Return along the same track. Take drinking water.
About the region
Discover towering trees, palm groves, trickling streams and amazing birdlife in the best remaining example of the rainforest that originally covered this part of the Great Dividing Range. Local Aboriginal people and those travelling to the bunya feasts in the Bunya Mountains used the area extensively. Rainforest hardwoods, red cedar Toona ciliata and other timbers were felled from about the 1860s. About 14km east of Hampton (32km north of Toowoomba) or 33km west of Esk via the Esk–Hampton Road.
