This was my first overnight walk carrying all my own gear - loved every minute!

We set out on Friday afternoon and hit the trail in an anti-clockwise direction. It is a nice steady descent passing through a variety of vegetation from rainforest to eucalypt forest back into semi rain forest. We reached the camp site in about 3 hours. The camp site is not marked but pretty obvious - if you get to the creek you've gone too far. Distance as per Map My Walk - 10.4 km.

Day 2 we set out just after 7. Not knowing what was ahead of us, we did the creek crossing in thongs thinking we would rock hop the rest of the 13 crossings and keep our feet dry - ha!! Don't bother, just step on into the creek as there is No WAY you can do this circuit and keep your feet dry - unless you bring your waders!

This second half of the trail is marked with Red triangle markers on trees, and you need to keep an eye out for them as sometimes the trail is not very clear. The first couple of crossings are a little challenging but ok if you take your time - walking poles make them much easier. Keep an eye on your legs for leeches - there are lots of them. Also keep an eye out for snakes, we saw 2 pythons.

It took us 4 hours 40 minutes to complete the track, that included a couple of stops and a detour down to the Gwongooral Rock Pools. Distance 15.6 km (1.2 km return to the rock pools) as per Map My Walk - bringing the total distance for the circuit to 24.8 km. i can't explain the huge variance in the distance quoted for this walk (about 17km) - we did not deviate from the trail (except as noted) and the gps map corresponds to the Topo map. I would love to hear from anyone who can explain.

Overall a fantastic walk for our first overnighter.

Great walk through beautiful surrounds . We did the loop, going right at the AS0371 marker (as per the QLD Parks & Wildlife Service topographical map), this took us 3 hours & was 11 km on my Map my Walk ap & 12 km on a Fitbit. There are challenging parts of this walk - a couple of steep descent and a very steep climb just after the bush camp - definitely not a walk for the unfit. Make sure you walk out to the waterfall, even though it wasn't flowing the view is beautiful.

Lots of beautiful scenery, bird calls and the odd glimpse of the very bright yellow Regent Bowerbird - loved every minute!
