Starting from the Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre, Edge Hill, this walk takes you on a circuit in Mount Whitfield Conservation Park via the Red Arrow Circuit track. With its well maintained track leading up to a great viewpoint, this scenic circuit is a regular cardio destination for many. You’ll be able to see planes and helicopters landing at Cairns Airport from up close. Along the way, you’ll come across a lovely part of the forest consisting of bamboo trees where you can slow down and appreciate your surroundings. While observing the environment, remember to keep an eye out for echidnas and red-legged pademelons. The area is quite popular, so scheduling it on an early weekday morning can help avoid the crowd. Keep in mind that there are heaps of steps in steep parts of the track. 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.
