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
  • Beautiful scenery and great hike but we did 9km so not sure where we went wrong! The section of track that winds along the river bank is a little overgrown so care needed for this section!

  • Good hike. Well maintained – clear path. It would not hurt if Parks Victoria would add a little more directional signage.

    1. Sounds like you took the track that ‘winds along the river bank’, which is much longer as it follows the river and is somewhat overgrown. If you had doubled back from either of the river access detours, you would have stayed on the main trail. The ‘Homestead and Mt Lofty Circuit’ uses the path along the river bank.
