Peterson Creek – Yungaburra

Peterson Creek

Cairns Day ToursThe Peterson Creek Walking Track is located in Yungaburra and is a fine example of regeneration of the native forest in progress. The locals of Yungaburra have been bringing this lovely mountain stream back to its original state by removing ferrel weeds and replanting many thousands of natives for over 15 years, providing a wildlife corridor between areas of open space.

Its takes about 35 minutes to walk the 2.3km track that not only has some historical memorabilia but offers a real chance to see a tree kangaroo, platypus or Ulysses butterfly. You can gather from that comment that often it can take much longer. Perentie Tours now offer an option to do all or part of the track. Many of the trees have name plates and there is interpretative signage along the way
