Walking trails brochure | Booderee National Park
The gentle terrain, mild climate and well signposted walking trails of Booderee National Park provide easy walking conditions. Walks range from a few hundred metres to several kilometres through a variety of scenery and wildlife habitats.
Booderee is an ideal place to see the abundance of flowering plants and animals in heath, forest and coastal tea-tree communities.
Heath grows in shallow soils and provides a colourful floral display in spring. Southern mahogany and blackbutt are the main trees found in the forests. Small pockets are enriched with species such as lilly pilly and hard corkwood - remnants from the warm temperate rainforests that once dominated eastern Australia. Beneath the canopy mats of ferns and creepers scramble over the ground and weave in and out of the trunks and branches. In the woodland, bloodwood and silvertop ash dominate.
Along the walking trails you may encounter many birds including honeyeaters sipping nectar from banksias, shy eastern bristlebirds foraging in the heath and perhaps a white-bellied sea eagle soaring above. Many insects and other small animals live in the foliage and leaf litter and sometimes quiet walkers see wallabies or grey kangaroos grazing beside the trails.
