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.

  • There is a discrepancy between the Hike Summary and the GPX path. The summary says “Follow Estate Spur Track south-west, enjoying the incredible 360 degree views from the highest points along the way, until you reach a sign pointing right to Coller Bay. Head right and descend to the main road…”. To stay on the trail you should head LEFT, not right. The path to Coller Bay also gets you to the road (just at the info booth), but cuts off the westernmost section of the trail.

    By the way, large sections of this trail are much steeper than I would normally expect on a Grade 3 hike, and be prepared for the temperature being several degrees cooler up on the spur.

  • We left the car at the lakeside camping ground and did it in reverse. The lake side walk was quite easy to follow, but the descent on estate spur walk was really steep. There was an arrow just before the descent on estate spur track, but it was pulled out and we couldn’t find the way given in the GPX file. We searched around a lot but every direction was dangerously steep.
