May 15, 2015 - 1 min read

Go exploring this weekend with these 3 epic Mackay hiking trails. We’ve listed an easy, medium and hard level trail, so there is something for pretty much everyone.

Easy Mackay Hiking Trail

Cape Hillsborough National Park

If you’re after a leisurely walk, Cape Hillsborough National Park has a number of short and easy bush walks, so you can enjoy the rainforest with your whole family.

Take a stroll along the Diversity Boardwalk or the Yuibera Plant Trail to enjoy the surrounds and eucalyptus forest.

Where: Cape Hillsborough National Park, QLD 4740


Medium Mackay Hiking Trail

Eungella National Park

If you’ve left the kids at home but are still a little worried you’re physically not up to scratch for a difficult hike, take a short drive to Eungella National Park for a bush walk.

Eungella National Park has a huge number of walking trails to choose from, but for a medium difficulty walk we recommend the Pine Grove Circuit for a short two-hour trail, or the Clarke Range Track if you’re looking to spend a few hours in the beautiful nature.

Where: Eungella Hinterland, QLD 4741


Hard Mackay Hiking Trail

Crediton State Forest 

Part of the Eungella National Park is the Crediton State Forest. This area is home to some of the more difficult tracks in the region, so if you’re a seasoned hiker this bush walk is sure to challenge you. Try your hand at the Credital Hall-Denham Range track that is 19.5 kilometres one way if you’re looking for a real challenge; just make sure you pack proper equipment and always stay safe!
