Mount Rooper Circuit and Swamp Bay Track

Conway National Park, Airlie Beach, Queensland, 4802

Website: www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/parks/conway/index.html

The Mount Rooper Circuit in Conway National Park passes through low woodland growing in shallow, stony clay soils. Lophostemons, grass trees and wattles are prominent. The grass trees can grow to four metres. Their pale yellow flowers produced on spear-like stalks provide food for many insects. Mount Rooper Lookout has a panoramic vista of the Whitsunday Passage and islands. A two kilometre track connects to the Swamp Bay track where open forest gives way to lowland rainforest. A rocky outcrop halfway down this track forms a natural lookout over Swamp Bay. Signs here describe Indigenous use of selected plants in this area. The Swamp Bay track follows the creek at the foot of Mount Rooper. The creek, like most here, flows only in the wet. The refreshing view is across Molle Passage to the Molle islands.
