Wyperfeld multi day

Postby Hikerpete » Sat 14 May, 2016 7:30 pm

I'm looking at spending several days walking Wyperfeld and am after input for suggested waypoints/campsites.
I'd prefer to stay off vehicle tracks as much as possible, and a loop would be best by far.
If needed I'm happy to do some water drops by vehicle first.

Any input gratefully received.

Has anyone hiked the Freeway Track at Wyperfeld recently? I find the name a little off putting, even after reading the history of the track. I am undecided whether to do the 2 day hike from Wonga to Remote campsite and back or to do a couple of day walks, one in the northern section and one in the southern part.

I would avoid Freeway Track. I'd recommend using Meridian Track going north, then return on it going south as well. It goes through attractive country which has some variation, so seeing it twice is fine. Also not as wide as Freeway, as you can observe in a satellite view, and from what I could see of Freeway where it joined Meridian, the former is certainly wider and much sandier. Also note the first c.4 km from Black Flat is actually a walking track not a MVO.

The Remote campsite is not greatly attractive. You can easily do a day walk to it from Black Flat and returning there (5 to 6 hours), plus have time to do the Tyakil loop. But the best way to experience the park is to include at least some off-track sections. The vegetation is mostly quite sparse. You could try linking up some of the other MVO tracks with some off-track.
