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
  • I did the walk clockwise and really enjoyed it. There was quite a bit of variation in fauna from the ridges down into the valleys and the heath was flowering nicely.
    A word of warning for hikers with kids: i did come across some gold mining shafts that have not been filled in – notably on Champions Hill. They are big and obvious, but not safe for curious kids.

  • Did the walk today. It was mainly 4WD tracks, which were not difficult, but the total length made it quite a good exercise. As Justin mentioned, the reservior was closed to public, meaning that the picnic area can not be accessed from the Egerton side if driving from Melbourne (google map is not aware of the closure and still navigates through Thynes road). The picnic area can only be accessed from the Lal Lal side,

    Really disappointed in this trail, exploerd 2/3, gave up and went to the falls. No real scenery due to tree coverage and the reservior is closed to the public. The blast furnace was worth the look though.
