Midway Track

Long before Queen Elizabeth visited Bruxner Flora Reserve in 1970, Gumbaynggirr people cherished the land, a living culture thousands of years old.

Trail information

Midway Track

In the subtropical old growth rainforest you can see strangler figs, blackbutt, palms, and hear the calls of the diverse birdlife. Look too for the evidence of the logging that began in the 1880s, and the tramline that transported the logs to the mill in Coffs Harbour. The local member, Ray Vincent lobbied the government in the 1930s to preserve the forest, and the Flora Reserve was eventually declared in the late 1950s, when logging stopped. Look for Vincents Tree, a large flooded gum believed to be about 500 years old, on Bruxner Park Road.

Beginning at the gap on Bruxner Park Rd, Midway Track climbs up to the scenic rim, where it meets the End Peak track from Sealy Lookout. Loop back taking care on the short road section.
