Hard track
Starting from the campground at the end of Trephina Gorge Road, Hart, this walk takes you on a circuit in the nature park, visiting a hill summit and crossing Trephina Creek along the way. Hence the name, this walk offers you panoramic views over Mordor Pound and the Trephina Bluff in the distance. As you make your way through the well-signposted rocky track, keep an eye out for Red Gums and Ghost Gums along with colourful wildflowers. You may come across some dingoes as well. There’s a bit of steepness to the track, yet the stunning views and the red walls of the gorge shining under the sun make it worth the hassle. The campground at the start is well-equipped and maintained, see it for yourself and spend a night if you feel like it. Remember to bring plenty of water. 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.
