Ravensbourne Rainforest Circuit is a 1.7km, grade 3 return hike, located in Ravensbourne National Park, Queensland. The hike should take approximately 40 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

On the Rainforest circuit in Ravensbourne National Park, large Sydney blue gums (Eucalyptus saligna) emerge through the rainforest canopy. Walkers can admire many attractive ground ferns, epiphytic ferns and vines growing in the understorey and along the higher section of this walking track the remains of an Aboriginal yam-digging site can be seen.

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.
