MALENY NORTHERN WETLANDS TRAIL
The Maleny Northern Wetlands Trail is suitable for all levels of walkers. It runs through the water treatment and transpiration area where high quality treated effluent is irrigated into the rainforest and wetlands. The naturalised water eventually flows into Obi Obi Creek. This is an outstanding flora and fauna habitat which won a prestigious UN World Environment Day (business) Award in 2015. A beautiful walk with wonderful views and birdlife to enjoy along the way.
This is a quiet little walk with great views and many a different bird to spot along the way. From the Dusky Mororhen which abounds to the rarer sighting of the White-necked Heron every day is a new potential sighting. All along the way there is a very good chance the frogs will be calling as you enjoy your morning walk. Also try and get out here on a foggy morning for a different walk yet again where you’re in your own little world.
Continue along the Maleny Trail and the Obi Obi Creek, if you are early enough you might spot a resident Platypus at one of the many viewing areas. Grab brunch in town then walk back to the car to have the Full Maleny Trail experience. Also stop by the Pattemore house on your way out for some local history.
