Today's Walk

Walking out of camp we cross through the farm fields before descending into Oakey Creek with it’s morning sunlight glittering through the trees.

We follow the creek before starting our ascent up the ridge line, keeping our eyes & ears peeled for the endangered Glossy Black Cockatoo that is known to frequent this particular area.

Using a combination of trails and farm roads to reach a remote section of the Main Range National Park we put our fitness to the test as we climb higher along the ridge and over rocky outcrops before resting for lunch where we are afforded stunning views of the valley below.

The level of very generous and warm hospitality from the guides, host and chef too… all the touches of thoughtful service were so so so appreciated.
— Anthony, 2 Day Walker
There was not one moment that stood out in particular, rather it was the whole experience that was exceptional. The food, the service, the walks, the guides - everything was wonderful... I can definitely see the value in this experience.
