Overall rating
  • Great and manageable overnight hike with kids (ages 10… for one of them his first overnight)! Just completed this on 12/13 April although got chatting at the 2k mark and stayed right and bush “bashed” back up (very easy) to meet the trail… cutting out a few cheeky ks both ways. Even though it’s not the most remarkable and wild bush, we loved seeing the grass trees appear and disappear and there are flat spots all along the trail from where it meets the creek to where it cuts back again. Lots and lots of firewood. Thank you, Darren, for the gpx file, there is no way I could have pieced together these trails, they are kind the way they go everywhere!

    This is a great day hike or possible overnighter (with kids) in a lesser known section of the Lerderderg State Park. Plenty of dry open woodland with a few spots where you can see past the treetops across the surrounding area. The section along Djerriwarrh Creek is fun to explore with a few spots where you can easily access the creek. Well worth the time to explore.
