Description

SATURDAY 2 MAY 2015

Passing Bundaleer Reservoir and the permanently flowing Bundaleer Creek, the Trail joins the Bundaleer northern intake channel at the aqueduct. After leaving the channels at the weir it follows Never Never Creek past remnant Yacca forests and grazing land towards Bundaleer Forest.

SUNDAY 3 MAY 2015

This is a diverse walk through native scrub, Bundaleer pine forest and farmland. The ridgetops and testing climbs reward walkers with spectacular panoramic views.

THEME – Jail breakers

ACCOMMODATION – Unfortunately the Gladstone Gaol is unavailable so you will need to arrange your own accommodation for the weekend.

NOTE – If you wish to walk on only one day, please contact the FOHT office to register for that day. The online registering system will only allow you to register for both walking days.
