Access Conditions

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.

      What an intriguing part of Victoria, at least for the Sydneysider ?
      Definitely worth a visit in the future when these ‘walking legs’ are kinda broken in…lol

      Susan Kro thank you. We got as far as Graham’s Dam. Plan to do the full circuit next time. It was just stunning ?

      Welcome to the site Jonathan and thanks for your comments. The link 2 track actually has two ascents. Parks Vic had never identified any of them so this trail covers the one that starts at LER504. Since erecting signage for the circuit walk they have now identified the track further to the north as a route. Both are shown on all maps I have.

      Thanks again for tour comments

      Cheers Darren Edwards

    14. Really nice walk with great views.

      It can get pretty challenging, and with a baby on my back, i’m very grateful we did the loop clockwise. There’s more to hold on to, and less loose gravel on the northern (Link Track 2) section.
