Hike Summary

Smith Track takes you through the Barron Gorge National Park on a spectacular walk through World Heritage rainforest with views of the Barron Gorge and Stoney Creek Gorge. This traditional Djabugay land was once a network of Aboriginal walking tracks between the tableland and the coast. These trails were adapted by gold miners, cattle drovers and railway workers to cater for pack horses. The two main routes through the Barron Gorge became known as the Smiths and Douglas tracks. Today these historic trails, along with more recent linking tracks, form a network of long-distance walking tracks throughout the park. Walkers may choose from half and full day walks.
