Great walk for the whole family. It offers changing scenery and excellent views. You may even see some wildlife. Be careful going after rain because the trail can get quite slippery.

Great hike ! Nice views across to the cliffs! Loved the waterfalls in the distance! Wasn’t 17km like this says as I left the recording button on as we drove away ... more like 14km

Really great hike. Good variety of landscape, and great views. Make sure to wear hiking boots for the puddles.

If you 360 degree views, don't mind getting a little dirty, and really enjoying the rain forest walks, then this is the walk for you. Walking at the beginning and ending isn't the most exciting part, but once you start the Ship Sterns circuit, that's where the fun begins. Even though they say you can do it in four hours, take your time and take in all the views and natural beauty of this walk. Its a definite one to do at Binna Burra.

Awesome hike today. A little muddy but totally worth it for the water running off the Molongolee cave. Had some rain but not too bad. Definitely slippery trying to get up surprise rock so we didn’t try too hard. But we still got the view from the other side. Beautiful views when the clouds parted. Saw a carpet python who had just eaten something pretty big. It didn’t care about us walking by. Watch out for leaches. I actually got one on ankle right at the end.

This is a great track through different environments. I’ve previously walked it in the dry, but not today. Very different in the wet and with lots of water flowing. A lovely walk either way.

I loved this walk. It combines rainforest with the dry forest and is simple stunning. Walking alongside the edge of the mountain range is beautiful. It can be slippery when wet.

A moderate walk, no steep parts. You start in rainforest, lots of fungi along the way. Around the halfway point it changes to woodland where you are rewarded with some spectacular views of the valley. Eventually you get back into rainforest. Its worth having a small detour to look at the Nagarigoon Falls. There are a number of streams along the trail, but you will not get your shoes wet. A little muddy in some places, but nothing to worry about.

HikingGreat!

some nice summer bush walking. Not too bad of an incline or decline so I would recommend to all ages! After the circuit we took a quick detour to Nagarigoon falls. https://youtu.be/H25JvnQJfAQ
