MUSGRAVEA TRACK

World Heritage Rainforest wraps around this track at Mission Beach for a beautiful ride over a number of freshwater creek bridges through Djiru National Park. This family-friendly ride is on a solid surface with some hard-packed blue metal.

This mainly flat trail is suitable for all weather access and requires a medium level of fitness. It follows an old forestry road used in the 1960s and 1970s to haul timber from South Mission Beach to the El Arish timber mill. The trail heads north from the car park at the Licuala day-use area and exits on to the El Arish–Mission Beach road about 2km east of the Lacey Creek day-use area. Creeks in this area are subject to flash flooding and caution should be exercised. Riders must arrange pick up or return along the Musgrave Trail.

To get to the Licuala day-use area and car park, turn north off the Tully–Mission Beach Road onto the signposted unsealed road, about 8km east of the town of Mission Beach. The day-use area and car park are 1.6km along this unsealed road. It is accessible by conventional vehicles. Lacey Creek day-use area is beside the El Arish–Mission Beach road, 8 km from the junction with the Bruce Highway and 7.5 km from Mission Beach township.
