Jumrum Creek Walk, Jumrum Creek Conservation Park
The Jumrum Creek walk is within the Jumrum Creek Conservation Park, which protects a small pocket of rainforest in the middle of the Kuranda township. The park encompasses rainforest along a section of Jumrum Creek before it flows into the nearby Barron River.
This short one-way walk can be accessed from Barang Street near the village centre or from Barron Falls Road, both of which have small parking bays.
The walk descends to the crossing over Jumrum Creek and climbs gently up to road access points. Visitors can retrace their steps or link onto the well sign-posted Kuranda village circuit walk, which includes the Jungle and River walks and passes through the village to complete the circuit.
As you walk, look for climbing palms such as lawyer vine and enjoy the diversity of plant and animal species along the way.
