awesome hike. camped two nights and had a great time. highly recommend. didn't see any snakes though!

Awesome trail, beautiful scenery, lovely swimming holes.

Ran the reverse (Kapunda to Tanunda). Great mix of dirt road, bush trails and farm land. Well signed, great scenery from start to finish!

Nice trail! Doesn’t take full 3 hours

A great hike that should be stretched over to 2 days, if not 3. The mountain climb is challenging yet rewarding. We camped by the river after descending from the mountain which was peaceful and beautiful. Don’t under estimate the second half of the walk though! There are multiple steep hills to hike up and the second day is as physically demanding as the first!

I completed the Gully Trail. Was a great walk. Views were worth the walk. A must for anyone who enjoys a challenge.

Great track, when you reach the bottom of the waterfall take a good rest as you'll be climbing stairs all the way and past the top!

Great track especially for a solo trecker. Easily done over two days but more enjoyable over three.

Beautiful walk, started in Bundeena and made our way to Otford so there was no pressure to catch the last ferry back.

The best section is at the beginning of the coast walk near Bundeena Wharf.

One of the best scenic trails in Victoria & the view from the summit is just breathtaking!

Excellent trail woth amazing views. Even better during the wintet months.

we didn't do the howl hike but we did 7 days and it was amazing hot in the day but freezing at night we went Stanley chasam to Ellery creek sooo so so good so fun grate school trip

Amazing place!!

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.

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

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!

Decent 3-4 hour round trip walk with beautiful Secret Falls at the end. Thoroughly enjoyed the falls & swimming here & we had them all to ourselves. Saw a few people heading here on the way back, so the earlier the better. Better to do this one for warmer weather so you can cool off & have lunch at the falls. You may think you have gone too far & haven't reached the falls yet, but there is now a small sign on the left of the track once you hit them & you just work your way through about 5-10m of scrub to get to them.

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.

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.
