Tips

The first part of this hike is a difficult ascent to the top of the ridge line. From there head SSW along the ridge line (trail is marked very infrequently with bright orange plastic ribbon). Once the ridge line starts to descend, you will start seeing debris from the reckage culminating in well preserved, intact fuselage of the Arvo Lincoln Bomber A73-64 This is the more difficult route to this site. Less experiences hikers will want to choose the Emu Creek Trailhead instead. Check the weather before you go by calling 0402002337 or 0746648053. The weather here changes rapidly and it is dangerous to go without being informed of the weather.

Really neat walk, super easy to get lost and go off trail if you don’t have the correct maps with you. Not many views as expected which in turns mean less people on the trail

This trail can get tricky if looking for the wreckage. We hiked to the summit first, and it’s some steep sections and some overgrown sections. The hike to the summit alone without trying to find the wreckage was approx 8km. From there we attempted to find the wreckage, we lost the trail and got confused with conflicting information on websites about where it was. The trail is actually flagged with pink flagging tape and is approximately 45mins - 1 hr additional walking to get to the crash site. We finally found it, but covered just over 20km in total. Not a bad hike, it was good to see the crash site, not really many view points from the summit. Bring plenty of water and food.

We couldn't find the Lincoln wreck. We went all the way to the Mt Superbus summit and did a loop around but no sign of it.

Super Sketchy track in the wet, quite visible, but extremely slippery, good hiking shoes and/or personal stability & balance, very steep in sections but can be climbed. once you reach the ridge line, can head left to the summit or right to lizard point.

Did this trail as part of a two night hike. Very steep elevation all the way up till you reach the ridge line but definitely worth the challenge. Whether your doing a day trip or multi-day hike - be sure to take a rain jacket. The weather turned very quickly for us despite a clear forecast. We found our selves in a very muddy situation with a lot of equipment in tow. Nevertheless - absolutely loved it!

The lack of views and as the tallest peak was a little disappointing but great for the history of the crash

Gorgeous walk, quite steep at certain points so bring plenty of water and arrive early so there’s time to spare if you get lost. Follow the old rabbit proof fence posts and mesh if lost. There are no views besides a few at the saddle of Superbus. The top is a bit of a scramble but there’s a humanly arranged pile of rocks which marks the top.

We hiked up to Mt Superbus Shoulder, then over Mt Roberts to camp at Lizard South Remote Bushcamp. Love the sunset & sunrise views to be had at Lizard Point. Also scouted part of the trail from Lizard Point to The Steamers Lookout. Returned to Teviot Gap down Mt Roberts ridge (tape trail marked by cairn of rocks along the trail on the south side of Mt Roberts, part of the way up from the Superbus-Roberts Saddle). A fabulous two days in remote, very steep, rugged wilderness. Tough with overnight pack with all the associated gear; including food & water for two days, but well worth the effort - for experienced hikers only.

Winter hike, Liat & Sandy, parked on Bretts Rd, Teviot Gap, hiked up to Superbus Shoulder & out to Lizard South Remote Campsite, Tuesday July 2nd. camped the night, visited spectacular Lizard Point, reconoitered part of the way to The Steamers Lookout, then hiked back to the campsite, collected our backpacks, lugged them back up & over Mt Roberts, to the rock cairn along the track on the south side of Mt Roberts, where we then turned left & followed the ribbon-marked trail down the Mt Roberts ridge to Teviot Brook on the right, which we crossed and then walked the overgrown old logging road back out to our awaiting car. Truly rugged & remote. Tough going with overnight packs on, but well worth t the effort. - Liat Ham

Overnight hike to the steamers. Very easy to loose the track so use gps and keep to the ridgelines
