Walkers Creek is on the southern end of Mount Elliot range, part of Bowling Green Bay National Park (south of Townsville). This creek is home to the impressive single-drop Walker Falls. This large granite cliff also provides views across the landscape.
Public access to this creek is via the national park, such as the Alligator Creek Falls area. From Alligator Creek car park, it's an ~18-kilometre straight line distance away. It is best accessed via private property so prior permission is required if taking this route. The easiest way to access this hidden gem is via private property and if you would like to do this walk, it is suggested to go with the Townsville Bushwalking Club. Before accessing this area from Woodstock Giru Road (outside of the main roads corridor) private landholder permission is required. Trespassers who enter private property without permission may be prosecuted.
