Settlers Track

Namadgi National Park

This is an easy walk that you can choose to do the full nine kilometres return walk or take the shorter six kilometre return walk. It's the same walk, you just take a short cut to cut out three kilometres of the overall walk.
The walk does have some moderate inclines, but these aren't that challenging if you pace yourself, if you find these parts a little difficult.
The walk takes you past three huts built and used by early settlers. The information brochure that is available at the track head gives good insight and detail of the walk.
