Angourie to Illaroo

This was my first solo walk, under the strick instructions of my family i was to make sure i didnt do something too hard if i was going to be doing this myself... I really enjoyed this, as there was not much water supplies i ahd to carry alot of water making my full pack about 17kgs. I did plan to do this walk in 4 days. Angoruie to Brooms head, Brooms head to illaroo and then back, however as i was by myself i powered through and did 36km each day, silly me got huge blisters and had to turn back in the morning otherwise i wouldve kept going.

Baltzer Lookout (Hanging Rock)

This walk to Baltzer Lookout along Burramoko Ridge rewards you with excellent scenery and a view over the stunning Hanging Rock (aka the Finger). The track is mainly management trail, and would be great on a mountain bike (to the end of the management trail). The large cliff edges are unfenced and quite exposed, so do take care. Although short and relatively unchanging in scenery, the walk to Baltzer Lookout is well worth it.

This varied walk travels north through the Watagans. Leaving the Basin campsite behind, the walk traverses the Wollombi Brook via the Lyrebird trail.

Along the way, a side trip to Mt Warrawolong offers views on the way to the highest point in the area. This walk finishes by descending into the beautiful Watagan Valley.
