Lamington National Park – Green Mountains – Toolona Creek Circuit – 17.4 km return (class 4)
The Toolona Creek circuit branches from the Box Forest circuit near Elabana Falls, then continues beside Toolona Creek, up through a gorge, passing Chalahn Falls, Toolona Falls to emerge on the Border Track near Wanungara lookout. The narrow Toolona Gorge creates a protected moist and shady refuge for many ancient flowering rainforest plants. The king fern Todea barbara is a relict of one of the oldest fern families, Osmundaceae, evolving even before Gondwana formed.
The return trip via the Border Track passes Mount Toolona and Toolona Lookout, and follows to Mount Bithongabel. Many large clumps of Antarctic beech Nothofagus moorei trees are found in the area.
