Getting there

Let someone know before you go

It’s a good idea to let someone know where you’re going. Fill in a trip intention form to send important details about your trip to your emergency contact. If you are lost or require help and have phone reception, call 000 and ask for police. The international standard emergency number is 112, if you dial this number in Australia you will be treated exactly the same as a 000 call. If you believe your life is at risk, activate your personal locator beacon (PLB), then make your position visible to rescue teams and keep warm and dry.

Overall rating
  • Hi,
    I’m looking at doing this one soon but also looking to make it an overnighter.

    Is there a place somewhere around the halfway mark (just roughly) where one might pitch a tent (especially near a stream or other water source)?

    Any info would be much appreciated.

  • I walked parts of this trail today 16/07/2022 and there are 2 x errors in the route.

    The Ferres Walking track section between 13,165m and 13,920m does not exist – use track shown as Silvertop Ridge Track.
    The Ferres Walking track section between 14,608m and 14,982m does not exist – use alternative alignment of the Ferres Walking Track 50-100m north.

    The areas has been revegetated and no trace of the previous track remains. Local parks service are actively discouraging walkers from attempting to use these parts of the track.

    Please remove these sections of the Ferres Walking Track.
