Barney gorge junction remote bush camp to Yamahra creek camp (Mt Barney National Park)

I did this walk going up the creekline there are some pros and cons to this as the views are amazing and the scenery spectacular, there are some sections which are a bit challenging as they require some small rock climbing skills and are made more difficult if your carrying a large pack. I had one stumble and wet my boots which is not good in wintertime and getting dark in two hours. We got to the upper portals and realized that we had gone too far so we had to back track and make our way up the ridge on the right as you cant get around the portals. From there you follow the track over the ridge and down the other side and descend to the Yamahra creek campsite
Lincoln Wreck Circuit (Main Range National Park)

This was the second time I have walked this trek, first time was a one day trek but this one was an overnighter with a full heavy pack....not for the faint hearted! Made it to the northern campsite (just!) in the afternoon and decided to camp there overnight. Next morning we left our packs and trekked to the summit (small silver box) and then on to the Lincoln wreck. Had a good look over the wreck site and trekked back to our packs and back down the mountain back to our vehicle. Enjoyed the trek but I was tired and sore afterwards...will do it again coming up the other side

I started this walk in the dry and about half an hour in it teemed with rain, made the walk even more dangerous as the rocks were extremely slippery...I don't know how I didn't slip over! Other than it being massively slippery it was a enjoyable trek....would like to do it again in fair weather
