Summary

The Beeripmo Walk represents a challenge for the more experienced bush walker, this rewarding two day walk winds through cool fern gullies and tall forests, taking in views across the surrounding hills of both Mount Cole and Buangor State park.

The track offers extensive views of Mt Langi Ghiran, the Grampians to the south towards Mt Cole and the Western Plains. The track is well defined and sign posted and the walk has been designed for those seeking a relaxing walk with time to take in the beautiful surrounds.

Overnight hike for kids

This makes an excellent overnight hike for kids as each day is not too long, the terrain is generally gently sloping with some steeper sections thrown in on the first day just for to make it a little more interesting.

Campsites

This walk starts at Richards camp site. The closest camp to the half way point is Beeripmo camp ground. Here you will find toilets and a rain water tank which you can use to refill water bladders (make sure you boil or use a filtering system). The camp ground is quiet pleasant, with about ten or so sites with their own fire pits nestled among the eucalypt forest.

Getting there

The park is located between Ararat and Beaufort on the Western Highway, Route A8.
