Brindle Creek Walking track

A beautiful walk starting at Brindle Creek Picnic Area, Border Ranges National Park. Stunning rainforest with well maintained track. Numerous easy creek crossing and a waterfall with large boulders you can sit on for a relaxing lunch break mid walk. The track is moderate (easy in many places) but the distance and time it takes is deceiving. We left at 11am and did not complete the walk which is 5.5 - 6km each way depending on which sign you read. A great winter walk but leave by 9am as the rainforest gets dark early.

Pinnacle Walk and Lookout

“We’ve seen sunrises all around Australia – the one from Pinnacle lookout is our favourite and has to be one of the best, and the walk there is easy as.”

Without a doubt, the journey along the Pinnacle walk to Pinnacle lookout is one of the highlights of the whole park and not to be missed.

It’s a short walk through World Heritage-listed rainforest before the track reaches Pinnacle lookout. You’re bound to be mesmerised by uninterrupted views of the whole park along with spectacular 360° views all the way to the coastline, the crater escarpment and to Wollumbin-Mount Warning.

If you’re an early riser, and even if you aren’t, it’s definitely worth making the effort to see the silhouette of Wollumbin when the sun rises – it’s a completely inspiring way to start your day in Border Ranges National Park.
