This delightful boardwalk illustrates the beginning of a long-term process of re-creating a subtropical rainforest. The gentle Obi Obi boardwalk in Maleny is both wheelchair accessible and pram friendly, providing a calm and tranquil experience for all, and even the chance to see the elusive platypus early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Enter opposite Bicentenary Lane – a superb rehabilitation project from Barung Landcare.
The Community Co-operative Walk Project was initiated in 1996, when directors of the Maleny Queensland Dairy Co-operative donated the land below the store to Caloundra City Council for the community.
Barung Landcare took on the project – extending the existing re-vegetation planted during the 1989-1991 Maleny Folk Festivals at the Showgrounds to the Boardwalk site.
