good workout and enjoyed the changing landscape.

Great half day hike, I hiked from Jarrahdale ( In front of the cemetery) to Serpentine falls. well signed and nice views.
Recommend doing it this way as it saves you paying for entry to the falls ($15pp).

Love it

Honestly one of the prettiest hikes. I completed with a 4 hour hike in day one and a 5 hour hike day 2 (with the excursion to the figure 8 pools, which is totally awesome!!). Would definitely recommend it although there is a lot of elevation change.

great, I'd go again

Top walk!

Trail was moderate until I hit greaves creek. Got stuck and lost the trail. Couldn’t figure out how to move forward. So I back tracked and went on an alternate trail. I looked up Luke Ryan’s recording post hike and can see that he also got stuck where I did, but it looks like he figured it out.

great track! beautiful views and easy signed

Beautiful hike the perfect combo of hills and flats. I'm pretty athletic it took me just under 2 hours to walk. Definitely will do it again.

The best and most beautiful place I've ever been

It was a good trail I would definitely do it again there where some challenging bits but overall the views made up for it the two campsites that we stayed at were good they were clean and the fire places already had some wood there for us to use and it wasn’t to cold which we were all great full for I would do it again if I could.

Loved this trail. Did it a while ago. Had sometimes problems go find the signs. (Bushfires) Lovely places to tent. Always fresh water ( July/ no treatment ). Always a good swim

I’ve done this keg of the Heyson trail and I loved it!! Camped at Yanyana Hut the first night after walking from Wilpena and Aroona Ruins the second night. The last day was Aroona Ruins to parachilana gorge and got a ride into Parachilna. A great time!

The 4 day (3 night) walk is a great way to see the rugged coastline of Tasmania and take in some of the most stunning views in the South of the island. The huts are wonderfully maintained and above average for trail accommodation!

Great way to see the heart of Tassie!

Variety of striking rock features. Idyllic mountain top glades which in September were swarming with butterflies amongst the wildflowers. Steep.

A nice walk. Went from Otford to Bundeena over two days. I clocked this walk closer to 34k so make allowances. As you travel through the boards indicating distance constantly change.

from North Era you can walk around the rocks you don't have to go over the ridge if tides permit. That would have saved plenty of effort.

Started at Berowra Waters and climbed back to Cowan. Very interesting track with a number of scenic outlooks. Lots of hard climbs and some challenging downhill sections. Well worth the effort.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Tracks. Went from Mountain Creek to Mount Bogong via the Staircase and came down via Eskdale Spur.

Tough walk but some of the most spectacular country you will find anywhere. I have bean walking in the budawangs since I was a kid. I never get sick of it. There are so many other walks and variations that are not listed on this app. Make sure you are experienced or are with experienced people when you head into this country. Otherwise just do Pigeonhouse.
Best time for wildflowers is late winter to mid spring. Birdwatching anytime. Snake spotting in warmer months. Avoid this walk in the hotter months. Despite what this app says January and Feb are the worst months to walk here. Best time April through to October long weekend.

Loved it really enjoyable and great to do if u do it make sure u do the side tracks also

As described. We did it with the kids, youngest 11, in 5 days. Challenging, but beautiful. Sea eagles, Osprey and Wedgies hunting ducks were a highlight. So were the dolphins. Plan carefully, as per parks guidelines, for water. We found fresh water at Table creek, the bunyip hole and flowing from the rocks at Cape Howe. Also at lake Barracoota, though some evidence of questionable toileting practice made us collect it well away from camp. We filtered it too.

Great falls for skinny dipping!

Great hike with some great scenery. In winter the hike is great for testing your skills in the snow without going to far of the beaten track.

amazing! highly recommend it
take plenty of water!
