Rambutan is an old aboriginal walking track that linked Shannonvale to Julatten. The track starts just past the top lookout on the Rex Range, go down the driveway and turn right before the farm gates. The track begins in tropical jungle and finishes in drier forest and finally the passionfruit farm at the Shannonvale causeway, where a great swimming hole is located. The track itself has a couple of small climbs and a longer pinch climb. Predominately it is a fast drop with three major steep descents. Some natural log drops and a log roll exists and the one long decscent can be technical. The trail is maintained by the D.I.R.T Club.

Access Info
