Upper Portals (Mt Barney National Park)

The drive up the dirt road is not to bad, I did it in a 2015 Forester with zero issues, maybe if it was raining it may get a bit tricky?

The walk down to the creek is ok, nothing special, but once the main creek joins up and you can do some rock hopping the scenery gets spectacular and the portals are incredible! The walking is not hard at all, a bit steep on the way back but it's not to long. So overall well worth the effort.

Steep walk, I did it after and during rain and it was very slippery. Went on to point lookout as well. Overall was an enjoyable walk.

Took just over 5h door to door from the car

This was a tough walk, once you leave the Logan's track the bush is overgrown with lots of vines some of which have thorns. Once I got into the ridge there were a lot of trees down. I don't have any idea if I walked up the best way. The big slab of rock below the peak was a long climb, not as technical as Logan's but very long and exposed, I was not expecting this. I then went across to East Peak and down South East Ridge. Took a long time, just under 7h, but most of that was spent pushing through the vines and dead trees.

What a fantastic walk, well worth the challenge, the views on this route are probably my favourite from the different tracks I have done on Barney so far. What a brilliant day out, cannot wait to do it again.

What a fantastic walk, I did it via South Ridge up and down, I will add a GPS track. If you can stay on the track from Rum Jungle campsite it's pretty straightforward.

What a great walk, I managed to get to the Old Mill Road car park in a Forester, there was not too much water in the creeks and the track was not too muddy. I got a bit lost at the start so won't upload my GPS track, next time I do the walk I will upload a plot. Although it does seem that people are walking this walk from different start points so I may start a new walk from Old Mill.

Did this one with my 11 year old son, he was keen to do the loop up to the summit and back down the main track, was a big day, slippery in spots and not much of a track to speak of.
