Route/Trail notes

This track begins just a bit before a one lane bridge just before the Gloucester River Camping Area on the left hand side if you're traveling in.  There is a car park opposite the entrance.  Follow the track until you come out at the overflow Camping area. Then follow the road to the right, through the camp ground and back to your car.  

Permits/Costs

Comments

We chose to walk this track in the opposite direction, beginning at the camp ground, and finding the track at the back of the overflow camp ground. It's not marked from this end, but a little way in there is a sign directing people coming in the other direction where to go. It appears that it's taking you in the wrong direction at first, but the track swings around at the sign, giving you confidence that you're on the right track. While this track follows the Gloucester River, you don't see much of it apart from where you cross it once, in our case, near the start of the track. You may need to paddle, though we managed to get across on the rocks.
