A big fire has destroyed a lot of the lush green foliage but it’s still wonderful and you can see it will slowly grow back. The water is very refreshing if you’re keen for a dip.

First to Review

Great views of Mt Barney, trail is well defined, but erosion in parts of it Some slight rock scrambling going up ridge beyond Lower Portals Some steep hills, but doable. I enjoyed a good walk overall, good leg work The road to starting point is good, 2 wheel drive car can do easily
