Starting from Rainbow Valley Access Campsite, Hugh, this circuit walk takes you to the Mushroom Rock and back, visiting Jack’s Lookout along the way. An undemanding scenic journey in the desert, this track will let you get to know the ancient Mushroom Rock. For millions of years, this sandstone boulder was eroded by rain and wind leading to its unique shape now. Although it already provides a great frame for a photograph, the different angles of sunlight can really enhance the final product. Take your time and get the perfect picture, then make your way towards Jack’s Lookout to experience one of the best sunsets in the area. A flynet and a hat is recommended. Let us begin by acknowledging the Arrernte people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
