We had limited time in the park but this walk was fantastic. Quite hot so make sure to hit it early in the day. Our 6 and 8 year olds loved the scrambling to the summit.

I took a slow stroll along here in the late afternoon with kangaroos for companions and birds calling.
Mt Barney - East Peak - South Ridge (Mt Barney Summit)

Very Hard
17km return

Started climbing early (6am). Slight navigation error as we reached the saddle meant we scrambled around some faint trails a bit and skipped Rum Jungle entirely. Picnic at the old hut site then up to East Peak for glorious views. Visited Rum Jungle on the way back down. Descent was quick but legs were complaining a lot! Plenty of water in the saddle creek.

Went late in the afternoon and had fantastic views with the setting sun. Make sure to follow on past the summit a little way to get views off to the west.

Took the whole family up for sunrise. Was quite crowded but worth it. Kids had no trouble (6 + 8 yo) but Nan and Pop struggled a bit with the climb.

Fantastic as always. Camped at the campsite with my daughter for her first overnight hike. Plenty of water in the creeks after the big rain.
