Wet Tropics Great Walk is a 37.5km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Girringun National Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 48hrs to complete.

Summary

Prepare yourself for a really memorable two day walking experience through these ancient palm-filled gullies, rainforests and open forests. The Buujan Quiinbiira (Boo-jun quin bee-rr-ar) walk starts at Wallaman Falls in the Girringun National Park and winds its way over the Herbert River to the Yamanie pick-up point. The trail is difficult and runs 37.5 kilometres one way. Ensure you have the right equipment, supplies and bushwalking gear and don’t forget to tell someone about your plans and when you expect to return. Mobile phone coverage is limited.

About the region

Girrungun National Park is a national park in Queensland, Australia, approximately 50 kilometres (31 mi) southwest of Ingham, 110 kilometres (68 mi) north of Townsville and 1,290 kilometres (800 mi) northwest of Brisbane. The park is one of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area series of national parks, and is a gazetted World Heritage site.

The park was originally named the Lumholtz National Park, after scientist Carl Sofus Lumholtz, when it was created in 1994. The Blencoe Falls Section was gazetted as part of Lumholtz National Park in 2000. The name was subsequently changed to Girringun in 2003. On National Parks Day 2010 (28 March) the Government of Queensland announced the addition of 2,810 hectares (6,900 acres) to the park.

Vehicle access into the forest include the Dalrymple Gap Track, or the Wallaman Falls track. However, for most of the park there is only very rudimentary or absent vehicle access. Most of the park is accessible for hikers, but due to its remoteness and rugged terrain only experienced bushwalkers should undertake extensive hikes.
