Description

Walk Cancelled – Hoping to reschedule in the near future.

Update – Re-route due to Track Closure Cleland NP

Please note due to a current closure of the Bartil Spur Track for upgrade works, Gate 9 is currently closed, so we can’t do the route described below.

Proposed Re-route:

Meet and start as noted below. We will go via the Burnside Track, up the “Goat Track” (at Gate 9), then the Long Ridge Lookout, follow the Long Ridge Track up to the Cleland carpark (toilet and snack stop). Then follow the Perimeter Track (anti-clockwise) around Cleland before stopping at the Cleland Cafe. After the break, back on the Long Ridge Track, then the Winter track onto Waterfall Gully Road. A short road walk then brings us back to the start.

NB – Slightly shorter than planned, now with a short section along the road.

Original Route:

Starting at the gate just off Waterfall Gully Road, we follow the gently climbing Burnside Quarry Track, then the Chambers Gully Track in an easterly direction. We take a left to include the Kilto Loop (a little up and down) before re-joining the Chambers Track once more. After an hour or so (from the start) we arrive adjacent to Greenhill Road, (that’s the hard work done) and take the Wine Shanty (for 1hr 15minutes or so) meandering past the Pillbox, Pimpala, Yerang and Lodge Tracks before turning right and heading into the Cleland Wildlife Park Cafe (via the carpark toilets) for a well earned morning tea stop. Refreshed we head out of the park and find our way through the carpark onto the Long Ridge track, and gently descend towards the Long Ridge Lookout. We take the left fork before the lookout and follow the narrow path as it descends around the knoll, and after a hard left at the bottom, taking us back onto the Burnside Quarry Track. From here its a few minutes back to the start, approx. 12.7kms in total.

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
