Starting from Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre and extending down to Yarrunga lookout, the connected East Rim and Wildflower walking tracks are a nature lover's dream.

A scenic and informative 6.7km return walk, the tracks have a number of spectacular lookouts with broad views of Morton National Park towards Bundanoon. Warragong lookout, just 1.25km from the visitor centre, is a particular highlight with its sensational side view of Fitzroy Falls. Keep walking though, and you'll also find impressive views of Yarrunga Creek gorge, Mount Carrialoo and Mount Moollattoo.

The gentle path features a diverse range of native plants and animals, including dry eucalypt forests, grassy woodlands, heathlands and rainforest areas bursting with birds. Seasonal wildflowers add splashes of colour, and you'll find helpful signs along the way that point out interesting hints and details about the changing environment.

Make sure to take your camera, because in the right light this walk is perfect for photography.
