Continue on Kaputar Road from the park entrance for 20km until you reach the T-junction, where you turn right. Lindsay Rocks car park where you start the walk is 500m on the left opposite the entry to Dawson Spring Camp Ground  or Eckford Lookout car park is a further 200m up the hill.


Mount Kaputar Walking Tracks

Route/Trail notes:

Bundabulla Circuit walking track connects Lindsay Rock Tops and Eckford Lookout, with plenty of attractions along the way. Following Lindsay Rock Tops walk and turn right at the signposted junction.

From here, the self-guided walk passes through a variety of vegetation types and rock formations. After 1.2km a track to your left leads down across the lava flows to the obelisk at Bundabulla Lookout. There are markers across the lava flows but some have worn away or are hard to spot.

Return to the main track, turning left to Eckford and Horsearm Creek Lookouts before reaching the top car park. From here is it a short walk back down the road to your starting point.



Other References/Comments:

With so many bushwalking options here and a length drive in, why not take advantage of the excellent camping facilities at Bark Hut or Dawsons Spring.

Bundabulla and Horsearm Creek Lookouts are superb spots for viewing wedge-tailed eagles. You might even see one of the famous pink slugs and carnivorous native snails if the weather is on the cold side.

This was the last walk I had not completed or been recorded on Mount Kaputar after two visits. It was a great way to finish off this trip with a leisurely walk along the southern perimeter. I have to say that the markers down to Bundabulla Lookout were a little vague and took the wrong track more than once and had to really concentrate to get back on the circuit.
