Mook Mook (Officer's Pocket)
Blackdown Tableland National Park
A lovely walk along Mimosa creek, through eucalypt forest to a lookout with incredible views of the escarpment and distant ranges.
This lightly trafficked walk starts opposite the entrance to the Munall camping area on Charlevue Road.
The track undulates through eucalypt forest, punctuated by rocky outcrops.
The first part of the track is along Mimosa Creek, crossing it once, before it moves into the forest.
The lookout at the end of the track is amazing, offering views off the edge of the tableland, to the nearby escarpments and distant ranges.
The view is unique compared to some of the other lookouts in the park, given that it does not extend to the plainlands, and for this reason is well worth the visit.
The lookout is particularly beautiful in the afternoon and at sunset.
Track: The track is a well-maintained graded path, with occasional steps, and is well-signed and easy to follow.
Difficulty: The track is relatively short, with only minimal elevation, and so is suitable for all fitness levels. While there is a fence at the lookout, it is a sheer cliff edge, so care is required.
Direction: This is an out-and-back track that returns the way it came.
The trailhead is located across the road from the entrance to the Munall camping area on Charlevue Road. The road from the Yaddamen Dhina day-use area to the campground is a gravel road and a 4WD vehicle is recommended.
The car park is 9 hours drive north-west of Brisbane and 5 hours drive north-west of Bundaberg.
It is recommended to break up the drive to the park and consider the impact of fatigue on driving safety. Many of the roads leading to the park are rural roads prone to wildlife, especially at dawn and dusk.
Parking at the day-use area is typically ample for how trafficked the walk is.

The walk can be completed year-round. If completing after recent rain, be sure to check the Queensland Parks website for updates regarding flooding and track closures.
Remember, whenever venturing into the outdoors, practice the Leave No Trace principles and be considerate of others. This means: dispose of your waste properly, don't remove things or move things from their natural position and respect all wildlife. Also be sure to plan ahead and adequately prepare for any adventure.
