Starting from the western end of Narrows Road, North Maleny, this little circuit walk takes you to the Baroon Pocket Dam Spillway Lookout, providing you a good view over Obi Obi Creek. If you’re lucky, there’ll be water gushing down the spillway. You can use this opportunity to capture a slow-motion video of it. Keep an eye out for goannas and bush turkeys as they are pretty common in the area. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
