Eastern Girrakool Loop is a 800m, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Brisbane Water National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 20 mins to complete.


This walk explores the eastern branch of the Girrakool Loop track. Starting from the car park this walk first visits the Aboriginal Engraving site. Before reaching Broula Lookout there is an optional side trip to a lovely section of Piles Creek. There is a second optional side trip to Illoura Lookout offering limited views down to Piles Creek waterfall. The walk concludes along the footpath which returns to the Girrakool picnic area. The lookouts do not provide the most expansive views but it is still a lovely walk.
