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.

    Brad Atkinson is this THE eagles peak? Top of Brocks Rd near lickhole gap?

  • 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!
