With the stunning scenery of this World Heritage Listed Area, there are some amazing walks within short distances from Public Transport.
This walk takes about 90 minutes each way. The track is quite rough with many areas that have not been maintained for many years.
As you will see from many of the photographs below, good balance is needed to use this track.
Would I take young children? Only if you are carrying them or they are tied to you with a safety rope.
There are many section where you are walking along the edge of the escarpment with a LARGE drop right beside you. The type of drop you do not survive.
You have to admit though that the scenery is absolutely stunning!
The escarpment cliffs average 200+ metres, plus another 100-200 vertical metres of tree line to the valley floor.
I did this walk on the st of June 2014, the beginning of Winter down under, so it is pretty bloody cold at 5 degrees celsius. Add in the wind chill coming off the Snow’y Mountains down South and the real temperature is definitely below 0 degrees Celsius – 32F.
All up the walk took about 4 hours. About 3 of that is walking and the other 1 hour was spent standing around feeling wonderful! Oh, and taking photographs.
There is something Primal in our psyche that needs to regularly visit places like this.
Nature is really good at putting life back into perspective.
What to bring:
- Raincoat in Winter is definitely advised.
- Warm jackets, beanie and mittens can also help.
- Feet are going to get wet! and muddy! I prefer light walking shoes so I can feel the terrain beneath my toes.
- Maps can be obtained from the NPWS office, on the left, just as you drive into the National Park.
