I was last in the Tarlo River National Park on 8 Aug 17. A different part of it, down by the river.
We were walking by 9.35am, paralleling the Towrang Road for a bit.
Our first points of interest, as we walked south down a drainage line near the eastern border of the NP, were two conglomerate rock overhangs.
After passing the second one, a small cliff line began on our left.
We continued south.
For morning tea, we climbed to the top of a bluff. Cool as it began to cloud over and the breeze increased.
We climbed down under it to continue after our break.
Down near the southern end of the NR it was slow going to cross the creek line and then west-ish paralleling the edge through damp, weedy growth.
Curving up to the NW, luncheon was taken. A nice open ridge for a while to get us going again.
The next hour of walking took us 1.8km on a wandering route, contouring around a few drainage line tops.
The best of the best locations of the day was a lovely fern field, small cliff line and easy pass. Just delightful.
The pass was gained through head high bracken fern.
We had a short break at the top.
An easier walking back to join Towrang Road and so back to the cars.
A very interesting area. Thanks for taking us there Jeff.
Here’s where we went.
