Starting from Booloumba Creek Day Use Area, Kenilworth, this circuit walk takes you to the barred up entrance of a historic abandoned gold mine from the 1920s. Housing hundreds of bats inside, the place feels like a former base of the black cowled vigilante. The hike up features plenty of photo opportunities from the interesting wildlife to the picturesque creek setting in the dense rainforest. You’ll have a tranquilizing experience as the track is usually quiet outside the peak season. Keep an eye out for snakes. Depending on the weather and track conditions, you may need to park your vehicle 2-3 kilometres up north and cross Booloumba Creek twice on foot unless you have a 4WD vehicle with good clearance. 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.
