We did this track in the middle of winter and although it was quite muddy in places it was definitely still doable. The track begins as flat and well-maintained next to the river for about 20minutes then takes a steep incline up into the bush. For the next 45-60minutes it's more of just a route that weaves through the bush then eventually back down to the river again. Hiking boots are a must in winter and dress warmly because it's on the sunless side of the hill the whole way so can get chilly. There is a clearing at the end of the track, perfect for a picnic lunch or a dip in the river if you're game.
