Starting from the Yerrabi Track Carpark off Boboyan Road, Booth, this return walk takes you to the summit of Mount Boboyan and the Tor Viewpoint via the Yerrabi Walking Track. THe Tor Viewpoint will provide you beautiful and soothing views of the mountains across the valley, which are covered with snow from winter to spring. You can take a sip of that hot coffee whilst enjoying the landscape as the light snowfall makes the view a little bit more magical. You’ll go through a Peppermint forest, and then a swampy grassland in which the Black Sallee surprisingly grows. Before the summit you’ll enter the Mountain Gum/Snow Gum woodland which is more moist than the Peppermint forest, due to the higher and denser canopy. The area is home to lots of wild animals such as the Red-necked Wallabies and wombats, but the mountain katydid steals the show with its brightly coloured abdomen. Come prepared for snow conditions even if it's not forecasted. Look out for snakes in the swampy grassland section in warmer times of the year. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
