The heritage loop walk can be joined and exited at numerous points along its length. A range of flora from sub alpine to temperate rainforest and heath. Wildflowers displays are prolific. Reptiles are numerous. Many granite outcrops to explore with the Haystack and Dandahra Crags being two of the best. The distance stated does not include side trips. Plenty of creeks and swimming holes.

Comments

Great walk. Camp sites were good. Unseasonally hot (up to 38 degrees). No running water in creeks between Grassy Creek and Boundary Falls.

I did this walk with my son, when he was 17. We both enjoyed it. A really good introduction to both National Parks. Good variety of landscapes and flora. Some impressive termite mounds and i really loved the grove of tree ferns.
As the original reviewer noted, this is relatively easy walking, and we did the walk in three days, I think.
