    This is a pretty satisfying 2 day-er. Especially when you get to a campsite that you can’t drive to. Well, that car campers can’t drive to, I mean 😁.

      Murky Murk it is a good one. Has a lot of variety

  • Thoroughly enjoyed this walk. I took the route anticlockwise which means a steady climb most of day one and a steeper descent on day two. That worked well except for the challenge of the steep descent right near the end, which found me on my ass with a broken pole after taking a slide. Should have been more careful. My second day, mostly in the State Park I think (as opposed to the State Forest), was probably the more interesting, and being a little shorter meant I could take my time to enjoy it. Nevertheless, I also enjoyed the first day including the excellent view from the Mt Buangor lookout. Good, well marked paths and I didn’t come across any snakes or leeches (nor any other wildlife other than birds, for that matter).

    I did the overnight on Friday before Cup weekend, aiming to avoid the weekend crowds, and that certainly worked. One other car in the carpark when I arrived, whereas it was over-full when I returned. On my night, the camping area had perhaps four other tents eventually. It’s a nice campsite with everyone well spaced. Seemed like plenty of water in the tank, and I could have used two fast running creeks on the way up for water if I’d needed. I didn’t have to wander too far to find enough firewood to last a couple of hours

    Worth being aware that the camping pads are pretty hard on the surface, though pegs went through it pretty easily with help from a friendly rock. Also it can get pretty breezy up the on the range if the wind is coming in from the south, which it was. It felt a bit colder than I’d probably expected because of that.

    All in all an excellent overnight walk only a couple of hours from Melbourne. I’ll definitely be back.

    1. I should have added: I started walking about 11am on the Friday and made camp about 4pm (with plenty of stops along the way to take it all in). Left about 8.30am the next day and got back about 12.30pm, again taking plenty of time.

  • hi.
    i am planning this one on coming week.
    can anyone please give me some approx timing, like when did you start and by what time you reach the campsite and the day two finishing time please!

      Thanks Jayden. It is actually in both so I will update the description to reflect that. Appreciate you pointing it out.

    2. Still well signposted in 2020, Day 2 still much easier than day one. The whole loop is achievable as a daywalk, if you’re willing to travel light.

    3. Not to worry as I did it clockwise and got the climb out of the way.

    4. March 2021
      Day 1 – Started this hike clockwise from Richards’ Campground around lunchtime. It was a hot day so I lost a few kilos doing this lol. It took me 4 hours and 30 mins before I found a spot for my tent and stopped my GPS. Moving time was 2 hours and 36 mins which makes my stopped time 1 hour and 54 mins. It was really hot and the climb was tough with me having to take many breaks. These breaks were also to enjoy the varied views/places you find yourself in. So 1st day was 9kms.

      Day 2 – Nice soft rain and a much easier walk. 12kms in 4 hours and 7 mins. Moving time was 2 hours and 55 mins. Stopped time was 1 hour and 11 mins. Much easier than day 1 for sure. I hid my pack near the Buangor Lookout sign and proceeded to the lookout. I would recommend leaving your pack as you have to comeback the same way. Worth the walk. Missed the turn to Richard’s Campground only by a few metres along with some others.
      Loved this walk. Beautiful but my heart did sink somewhat when you imagine what it would have looked like today if it hadn’t been logged all those years ago.

      Here is a great tip! I stopped to use the bathroom at Raglan Recreation Reserve only to also find a shower there as well – bonus! Coin operated hot water (always keep a few $1 and $2 handy) and oh so worth it. Freshened me up for a great drive home.

      There is technically no reason why you cant.

    10. We did this trail over the weekend and it is a hidden gem – there are a lot of fallen trees on the second half of the walk through the gully, though, but the second day is much easier than the first, and we were genuinely surprised to see the sign telling us we had less than a kilometre back to Richards.

    Done this hike – it’s awesome

  • Great overnight hike. Hiked in May 2018. The views were glorious and we had friendly hikers at the overnight spot who shared their amazing fire. Came across some trail-bikers on D2 which, fortunately for us, had mechanical issues and were being loaded up on a trailer.

  • hi.
    can we hike in the night time?

    Awesome hike. I’ve done it 3x this year and just love it!

  • Hi.
    Do you do this hike clockwise or anticlockwise? Any recommendations for middle aged gent who is of medium fitness.

  • Great walk, completed this in the June weekend 2018. Lots and lots of other hikers on the trail and so the campsite was packed. Freezing cold during the night so take a good sleeping bag and warm clothes. Plenty of fire wood but it was sopping wet so it took a bit to get going.
    We took a wrong turn at Mugwamp Hut and ended up at Mt Buangor which we hadn’t planned on, but the lookout there was spectacular and worth the 5km detour.
    Trekking poles recommended especially with the steady but sometimes steep down hill on the second day.

Leave a Review.
