Burdekin Bridge Walk
The Burdekin River Bridge, affectionately referred to as the SilverLink, is the district’s best known landmark - it also offers a fantastic walk along the pedestrian walkway. Visitors wanting to experience the walk can do so from the north or south sides. The best place to park to access the pedestrian walkway is on the southern side at the Burdekin Diorama in Home Hill. The bridge makes a great backdrop for photos and the best place to get a happy snap is from the pedestrian walkway on the southern approach. The bridge is 1.1km long and in 2010 was recognised as a National Engineering Heritage Landmark.
The Juru Walk in Plantation Park is an important link to the region’s Aboriginal history. The Juru walk is situated in what is believed to be the Burdekin’s last remaining remnant rainforest. The area includes a lagoon teeming with wildlife as well as several art sculptures.
Rising dramatically from the vast surrounding landscape, Mt. Inkerman, south of Home Hill, offers an awe inspiring view of the landscape below. The hike up to the top via the Mt. Inkerman Nature Trail (MINT) offers a steep but scenic walk that winds through the bush to reveal the vast Burdekin landscape. The district’s rich agricultural country and the sheer size of the Burdekin River is best appreciated from here.
