This walk is part of the Misty Mountain wilderness walking trails, a 130 kilometres network of short and long wilderness tracks takes visitors through pristine, high altitude rainforest with crystal clear creeks, waterfalls and panoramic views.
The Koolmoon Creek track leads through Tully Falls and Tully Gorge national parks from near Ravenshoe to Cochable Creek camping area, north-west of Tully. A series of linking loop tracks, all connecting to Tully Falls Road, provides opportunities for walkers to complete both extended hikes and shorter day walks. Walkers are advised to arrange vehicle pick up from the end of their walk because Tully Falls Road is narrow and winding and dangerous for pedestrians.
Walkers must be well-prepared, self-sufficient and are responsible for their own safety. Inform a responsible person of your walking plans and when you expect to return. Carry at least one reliable form of communciation equipment. Satellite phones and personal locator beacons (PLBs) are the most effective.
