Walks in the Wallum 2023

Updated: Aug 30, 2023

Update: Due to popular demand, Ben's guided walks are continuing through to November! See the calendar on our Events page to find a date that suits you.

BIEPA's annual Wonders of the Wallum walk is being supplemented this year with guided walks by BIEPA member and botanist Ben Timmings of Gondwana Surveys. These entertaining adventures will help raise funds while giving walkers a deeper educational experience of the remarkable wildflowers and other plants in the unique wallum habitat on and around Bribie Island.

Wildflower Festival

These walks coincide with the Sunshine Coast Council's Wildflower Festival for 2023, which runs from Saturday 19th August to Sunday 3rd September. From the SCC website you can download brochures for Wildflowers of the Sunshine Coast and ten self-guided trails managed by QPWS.

Note that BIEPA's walks are not included in those listed on the SCC Events website because they're outside that Local Government Area.

Can you help?

We need lots of volunteers on the self-guided walks to assist with setting out the little signs, checking in walkers, and helping to direct them at a few places along the route.
