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
  • Completed this one today. Keep in mind that the trail from Falcon’s lookout until you’re back in the state park is now off-limits (private) property so no access to Werribee River from Falcon’s lookout. I cut through from where the “Private Property” sign is to the (dry) riverbed.

  • I have done a lot of this place but I still have no idea where and how to safely traverse the saddle i’m guessing there’s a bit of actual rock climbing involved?

    Jo, have you walked thus?
