Starting near McFarlane Saddle, on Moroka Road, Moroka, Alpine National Park, this walk leads to Lake Tali Karng via the Wellington Plains Walking Track. Reaching the lake requires descending a steep rocky path. The strenuous descent is worth the effort for the tranquillity and beauty of the lake, where the water is ice cold all year round. Two creeks feed the lake, Snowden Creek and Nigothoruk Creek. Snowden Falls is a set of three waterfalls along Nigothoruk Creek. The track across the plains is flat and mostly well defined, with some rocky sections that require careful stepping. Keep an eye out for snakes, especially in summer. As this is an alpine region, the weather can change pretty quickly, so come prepared. If you decide to stay the night, keep in mind there are many spots to camp between Nyimba and Riggall Spur. 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.
Warning This journey requires significant bushwalking experience, specialised equipment and navigation skills. Please ensure you and your group well prepared and equiped for this journey.
