Beacon View Walk

Bellthorpe National Park
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

This rugged national park features open eucalypt forest, rainforest and cascades along picturesque Stony Creek. Remnants of Brandon’s Timber Sawmill can still be seen on West Bellthorpe Road. Branch Creek Road offers a moderately challenging and picturesque 4WD opportunity as it winds up through the middle of the park.
Although this is predominantly a 4wd and horse riding park , there’s nothing stopping you parking your car at a gate or side of road and walk to the destinations.

No Dogs Permitted
No Camping Permitted
Eucalypt Forest

Getting there:

Off the D’Aguilar Hwy into Mary Smokes Creek Road follow for several kilometres then turn right into Mc Cauleys Lane. Follow till you hit a small intersection , to the right into a gravel road and you will hit a gate ( 301) private property but walk past and you will find the Nat Park Gate. Turn right and walk up the hill.

A wide 4wd track but very STEEP and very soft eg: loose gravel/sand and rocks.

As per description , this is a 4wd track , very loose gravel / dirt / rocks and at times very very STEEP . Walked a lot at the edges of the track to get some traction...nice view , bit obscured by trees though
