    Received an update from a group who attempted this hike on 25/02/2023. We attempted this hike but couldn’t get through lickhole creek track to Mt darling due to huge blackberry infestation. Was super slow going have to cut/break down the blackberry. Turned back very cut up.

  • I’ve attempted this one twice, both times starting from Sheepyard Flat, but going clockise and anti-clockwise. To date I haven’t managed to complete the circuit. Going clockwise in May 2020 we ran out of daylight and water, camped near the final ascent up Eagle Peaks and then returned back the way we had come the next day. The second time in late 2021 going anti-clockwise the path 6-7km along the river was completely overgrown with blackberries – so I decided to turn around and try again another day. I will attempt this again, I hear the section near Eagle Peaks is great – but everything leading up to it is pretty miserable!
