Decent year for king orchids. I estimate they will open up by the weekend. Do not wear your new hiking shirt, the wait-a-while palms recovered well during last year and will rip it to pieces. A few fallen tees on the Part off the border track.

Very enjoyable in winter. Had to “deal” with a blue-tongued lizard on the trail. Remarkable volume level as he/ she was hissing at me. Wouldn’t label the track anymore suitable for wheelchairs. The bitumen path has certainly seen better days.

Typical aussie eucalypt bush. Cockatoos and roos find a home here. A network of loops to choose from, many have a few steep sections. Good prep for the next summit climb. The centre road is some 20km return from end to end. Take a picture of the map when entering the trail area. Straightforward numbering system of each intersection.
