Baldy & Yabi Mountain Circuit Hike - Half or Full Day Adventure
Experience our beloved mountain on foot!
Meet at the trail head where we tighten our bootlaces and adjust daypacks. This is a steady yet challenging walk that undulates through open eucalypt forest which includes the 1109m summit of Mount Baldy and the adjoining 1055m peak of Yabi Mountain, offers impressive views of the Atherton Tableland and Lake Tinaroo on a clear day.
Our expected walking time is 2.5 to 3 hours. Wear whatever you’re comfortable walking in but we recommend you bring sturdy runners / boots, a hat, wear long sleeve shirt and walking pants (long or short), bring sunscreen and two litres of water in a small backpack – we can assist with a spare water bottle if required. Optional gear includes sunglasses, walking poles, binoculars and a camera. Your guide will be carrying a First Aid kit.

FULL DAY ADVENTURE OPTION
To extend your day we will transfer you to Hasties Swamp, a large seasonal wetland renowned for its diverse birdlife, to enjoy a picnic lunch with a spot of birding. We then head to the internationally-renowned local Bat Hospital for a guided tour of the visitors centre. Meet some of the cute Australian flying foxes up close and learn what’s special about these mammals. You will get an insight into their unique upside-down world.
Add $55/guest for lunch at Hasties Swamp and the visit to the Bat Hospital.
