Henrietta Creek to Goolagan Creek is part of a network of walks in the Palmerston section of Wooroonooran National Park. It can be walked separately or as part of a longer walk from Henrietta Creek to Tchupala Falls Trackhead and possibly on to Crawfords Lookout and the North Johnstone River. Wooroonooran National Park is an integral part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Its fertile soils and extremely wet climate have fostered some of the oldest continually surviving rainforests on earth, making this area of universal importance and value.
The 800 metre Henrietta Creek to Goolagan Creek section begins at the Henrietta Creek picnic and camping area and winds along the banks of Henrietta Creek. It is an excellent track to view aquatic wildlife such as platypuses and turtles. There is a viewing area half way along the walk at a waterhole. Make sure to check out the various fig trees along the way. From Goolagan Creek you can return the short distance to Henrietta Creek or continue on to Wallicher Falls and Tchupala Falls.
Camping and picnic facilities area available at Henrietta Creek, including toilets, gas barbecues, and water.
