Once you get to see the Mooloolah Conservation Park, head over to see the Mooloolah River, it’s one of the most important coastal lowland habitats within the Sunshine Coast, providing a home to numerous species that have lost their homes due to rapid development. Aside from animals, trees and plant species, including scribbly gum open forest, wallum banksia woodlands, melaleuca forests, and sedge lands are among the threatened species that thrive here.
The park’s Jowarra portion also protects important wildlife species such as the eastern yellow robin, the Richmond birdwing butterfly, and the wompoo pigeon. If you’re lucky, you may encounter these species during your visit, so don’t forget to bring along your camera. From here, you can also explore the beautiful Mooloolah River National Park either by canoe or on foot, though many also love cycling on the bikeway.
The rest of the Mooloolah Valley is filled with natural attractions; these gems are sure to favour outdoor lovers. Some of the other popular attractions here include the Ewen Maddock Dam and the Dularcha National Park.
The Mooloolah Conservation Park is one of many reasons to visit this scenic region.
