Start this section from the public carpark in the Dutchmans Stern Conservation Park. The carpark is at the end of the Dutchmans Stern Road into the park, however endeavour to limit the number of cars, as there needs to be room for the bus to turn in the car park. The local ranger can be contacted to allow access to the area around the walkers’ hut for parking to alleviate this problem. Lisa Taylor 0428 990 675 (as of 2023).
