Overall rating
  • Could I reach this trail in a normal car? Or will I need a 4wd?

  • Ha, the old Hacket Track sure is non existent! Rather than bush bash I continued up Triangle to Windy Point. I’d forgotten I’d been here before a few years ago, then remembered the steep Nichols Hut Track. I was happy to walk down it this time.

      Hi Shaun, the Gembrook-Tonimbuk Road is unsealed but is suitable for 2WD vehicle.

    2. Have to love the steep downhill. Or up hill if you prefer a challenge

    3. Hey folks. Is there a gpx file for this hike? I can’t see it.

      Hey Paul. There sure is. There was a stray comma in the coding so I have just removed that and the map now appears. Thanks for the heads up.

    5. I did this walk and it was really great. It is not marked at all and the local instructions are not the best. The view from the brothers rocks is amazing and we saw a lace monitor and a koala come down a tree, walk across the ground and climb another. If you walk it in the direction written above there is a VERY steep downhill section towards the end.

    6. We did it couter clockwise and it was nice. The steep part before the Four Brothers was enjoyable. It was great to take our lunch at the Four Brothers as the view really worth it.

      I must say allowing 5 hours for this trail is very generous- we did it in 3.5 and that was with a lunch stop. Four brothers rocks was beautiful.

    8. Just a heads up, the trail is currently closed (as of November 2019) because of fires last summer (?)
      Presumably due to danger from falling trees and also to allow regeneration.

    9. Nice trail with bits of inclines that don’t last very long – keep an eye out for some other rocks before the Four Brothers Rocks. Went recently and there are quite a few fallen trees and branches and a bit of overgrowth on the Nicholls Hut Track.
      Also diverted a little and tacked on Tree Fern Track – some bush bashing required on this track and follow the fluoro orange arrows.
      Enjoyed this trail.

      Thanks for the feedback. I’ll change the hours to 3-4. Last time I did this was with a group of kids so we spent a lot of time exploring the rocky outcrops.
