    If you're not a big fan of regular well maintained trails this walk will certainly make you appreciate them. This walk was a particularly stout undertaking and could be more enjoyably done over three or even four days (t...

    What a great right up. I keep this hike in mind when I think I need to be punished. I pretty sure that this is only way ...

    Not recommended for inexperienced Hikers! Start by following the Lower Portals track for a short distance, you then exit the trail and start bushbashing about 3km cross country just to get to the start of the ascent of ...

    From Yellow Pinch car park there is a 3km walk to the start of SE Ridge. The path is well worn up to the summit. However, take care at the razor back at about 900m altitude. A length of trustworthy rope would be very hel...

    2 hard+exposed scrambles, 1 abseil. Scrubby. Great views. 10hrs car to car, descent via isolated creek. 6hrs up, 4 down. Eagles slabs the highlights.

    Do you think this would be “easier” done in the opposite direction. Must admit sitting on Toms Tum last week looking at ...
