You’ll find the Eckford Lookout walk entrance on the left at the top of Mt Dowe after about 21km, which is the end of the road.

Route/Trail notes:

From the car park, the entrance track heads down to the lookout. Return the same way.



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.

Could not get very excited about this one, but if it is there, then you just got to walk it. Think we are now up to walk four for the day, with four to go.
