Cardwell Forest Drive

Outdoors in Cardwell

From the town centre, this scenic 26km round trip through nearby forests is chock-a-block with lookouts, walking tracks and picnic areas signposted along the way. There are super swimming opportunities at Attie Creek Falls, as well as at the aptly named Spa Pool, where you can sit in a rock hollow as water gushes over you.

Other highlights include the picnic area at Dead Horse Creek (4WD only) and Cardwell Lookout.

Cardwell’s visitor centre has brochures detailing other walking trails and swimming holes in the park.
