Lower Portals (Mt Barney National Park)

Medium
7.4km return

Forest regenerating after bushfires meant no canopy in trees but grass trees make for nice scenery. Alot of washout on tracks with alternate goat tracks made by walkers. So not an easy walk but not a long walk and waterhole makes it worthwhile! Lovely to cool down in after hiking in a pack. Campsite not very inspiring with fences and signs around but at least flat ground with trees and not too far from the creek for water. Lots of insect life including pesky marchflies/horseflies but mostly only at dusk and dawn, was cool to watch a cicada hatching from it's exoskeleton at night on a nearby tree. Were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves the first day, imagine it's popular on weekends though.
North Kobble bush camp walk (D'Aguilar National Park Bush Camps)

Bush looking very dry and just a few puddles in the creek. Good bird and insect life though and scenic with native grasses along creek. Would be great after decent rains. Camp site very dusty and uninspiring but good seating area and logs, looking at other photos seems a different place when there's grass ^_^

Nice walk with good breezes through the gorge. Water was a bit stirred up, lots of visitors being a Sunday. Would be a top spot when it's quieter midweek.

Looking dry but nice views on the walk and at the lookout. Saw eagles cruising the thermals. Watch out for ticks - we found a couple on us when we returned to the campsite.

A nice walk, nothing too strenuous except some stairs that get the heart going. Interesting to see the mountain from different angles.

Amazing views and landscape. Got out to Castle Crag, steep cliff sides though - I wouldn't do it with kids.
