Bryce Gorge Circuit is a 7.6km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Alpine National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Summary

The Bryce Gorge Circuit hike starts at the carpark on the Howitt Road, 23.5km north of Arbuckle Junction (46.5 km north of Licola via Tamboritha Road). From the carpark follow the well defined track across open snow plains for about 1.7km to the waterfall on Pieman Creek. The best view is from a lookout about 50 metres beyond the sign.

Return to the main track and continue around the clifftops of Bryce Gorge for 2 km to Conglomerate Falls. From the falls the track follows Conglomerate Creek through Black Sallee woodlands and across open plains to a junction with the Wonnangatta Track. Guy’s Hut is reached a further 3 km though groves of Snow Gums. Built in 1940, the hut is an excellent example of bush architecture and well worth a visit. Continue 1 km south east from the hut to the carpark

Getting there

Drive to Licola and at the road junction near the bridge take the Tamboritha Road (don’t cross the bridge). You will drive past bush camp sites before the road will turn into a dirt road. 48km from Licola you will reach the Arbuckle Junction, turn left and follow Howitt Road for another 23.5km to the Bryce Gorge Carpark.
