Very challenging
Starting from Pine Creek Road, Numinbah Valley, this return walk takes you to the top of Pages Pinnacle through the woodlands of Springbrook National Park, crossing Wild Cattle Creek along the way. After the little scramble before the summit, you’ll be met by the rewarding views over Binna Burra and Advancetown Lake. This walk is uphill all the way to the peak, but the teeming wildlife of Springbrook may take your mind off that. Whether it’s posing lizards on a tree, a gorgeous snake(keep your distance), or the soothing birdsong. Keep in mind that the path may be overgrown at the top, so cover yourself well to avoid scratches. Also take extra care around the ridge. 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.
