The Australian Bicentennial National Trail runs through the North Burnett region, commencing its journey south at one of the toughest parts of the entire trail: Kroombit Tops National Park, with its rugged wilderness terrain.
The Trail winds its way through rainforest and rare native fauna to Cania Dam and Cania Gorge National Park. Beyond Monto the terrain eases as the Trail follows roads and tracks to Mount Perry, then through the Goodnight Scrub to the Burnett River. Shorter treks are more feasible in this section and an agreeable climate allows year-round enjoyment.
The Trail continues past Paradise Dam and Degilbo to Biggenden then on to Maryborough via the Golden Fleece camp and Broomfield.
The Trail is not suitable for, or available to any form of motorised transport such as four wheel drive vehicles or trail bikes.
Conditions and access details of the Trail change regularly, so please contact the Trail office on 1300 138 724. You will be provided with more detailed information on planning a trek, water, climate, terrain, membership and guidebooks.
