White Rock Ridge Hike (Ipswich)

Wow holy Wow!! I took my 12 year old girl with me on this walk. It ended up totalling 7.5km. We took the White Rock Ridge Track on the way up and the White Rock Multi user trail on the way back. The Ridge track is super cool and exciting. Once you get up high you end up on top of a cliff and its easy to get confused. Once you find the trail and manoeuvre you way down the cliff you end up at White Rock. Such a spectacular bush walk and I'm keen to try the bigger trail soon.

Beautiful steady but long walk. Lots of birds and wallabies. Started off with the realisation that I left all my food in the fridge at home... DOH. At least I could purchase a couple of chocolate bars at the Hotel restaurant and my walking buddy bought some extra protein bars, so I was OK..... the first part of the walk heading up with the waterfalls is picturesque, narrow cliffs, dark and a slight incline the whole way. The Waterfalls were stunning. The creek crossings were dry-ish, I would NOT attempt them after heavy rainfall. The Lookout at Wanungara was our first and only break. Beautiful spot with some clearing to sit and chill and some spectacular views of Limpinwood Valley and Murwillumbah to the sea as far South as Byron Bay but view was a little obstructed with trees. I was just glad to have somewhere to sit for a while. On our way back we stumbled across a campsite "Bithongabel" and it excited me to see the remnants of a campfire. I would love to camp here one day. There is about enough room for maybe 2 tents? Finally we made it back to the start at O'Reillys. I discovered my knees were a bit shonky and that I need to pad up my toes after this walk. There is a lot of loose rock terrain so its a bit hard on the joints. As an avid bird lover, I will return here with my camera set up soon. The birdlife is spectacular and they aren't afraid of us humans. At about 18kms in total, I was full of self achievement as this is by far the longest hike I've ever done and I would do it again in a heartbeat. NO LEACHES at all. Maybe July is a good month to do this walk as its dry but cold. My bum was cold the whole way through. I never took my jacket off once. LOVED IT. Took us 5 hours and 10 minutes with a 20 minute break included.
