LOT 366 El Arish Mission Beach Road, Maria Creeks, Queensland


The 1.5km Lacey Creek Circuit runs through the Djiru National Park, offering walkers a variety of lowland rainforest vegetation. This walk is best appreciated when walked in an anti-clockwise direction. Starting from the cassowary information shelter, the track passes through rainforest and exits at the picnic area near the car park. Signs along the track provide information about the evolution of various plants and animals. About half way round, a viewing platform allows walkers to peer into a calm pool of Lacey Creek and spot saw-shelled turtles and fish of various types. Signs help with identification. Make sure you load up on the mozzie repellent before stepping out to do these walks. And watch for cassowaries along the dirt road and around the picnic area. Please do not share your lunch with them as some birds have become problematic, accosting visitors for food. The day-use area at Lacey Creek has wheelchair-accessible toilets, gas barbecues and picnic tables. Pets are not permitted. No camping or overnight parking.

Quite a nice walk & a pretty creek. There are quite a few steps & stairs so not stroller or wheelchair suitable.
