Western Girrakool Loop is a 1.1km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Brisbane Water National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.


This walk explores the western half of the Girrakool Loop track. From the picnic area this walk heads down the footpath to Illoura Lookout with views down over Piles Creek (there is an optional side trip to the top of the waterfall). The walk then has another optional trip to Bundilla Lookout providing a distant but square view of Piles Creek falls. The walk continues around the loop enjoying the wildflowers which are in bloom late winter and spring. Before looping back to the picnic area there are two more lookouts with filtered views.
