Owner description: Behind the Botanic Gardens is Mount Whitfield Conservation Park, home to the Red and Blue Arrow Trails. These two linked tracks ascend the slopes of Mount Whitfield. The Red Arrow loop trail (1.5Km return) beginning at Collins Avenue, climbs 100m in elevation through rainforest, Eucalypt forest and grasslands to a lookout above the Cairns International Airport offering views over the city and out to Green Island. A short link trail ascends a further 50 metres to another lookout from where the Blue Arrow loop trail (4.5Km return) commences. The Blue Arrow trail takes you through mainly rainforest to an elevation of 300m. About half way around, a short side track will take you to a lookout on the summit of Mt Lumley Hill where you get views along the coast to the north of Cairns.

Definitely a must do when visiting Cairns...great for a quick workout that has the bonus of a lovely view when at the top.

I always expect to find a secluded Buddhist temple at the top of the steps which wind up the hill. A lovely view from the top.

Situated in the beautiful botanic gardens and a short stroll from the trendy Edge Hill Village shopping and restaurant strip [too close if your trying to walk to loose weight :)]
This walk is steep in parts and the tip is to avoid times just after work as it gets really busy and its a narrow path.
Avoid wet days

This is the short brother of the Blue Arrow Walk that goes up the hill for several hours. The Red Arrow walk only takes an hour and goes on the western side through some pretty rainforest. The eastern slope is dryer and has some bamboo. Combine this with the boardwalk in the Centennial Lakes Park and you get a good idea of the local rainforest.
