Walk
6 h to 9 h

Starting from Newton Drive, Nightcap, this walk takes you to the Rummery Park Campground via the Historic Nightcap Track, Gibbergunyah Range Road and Peates Mountain Road; optionally visiting Mt Nardi, Mt Matheson and Peates Mountain along the way. Embark on a journey through the diverse and lively woodland, and notice the scenery change as you make your way through. The rainforest sections are mostly shaded and cool, where you can see tons of wildlife. Keep an eye on trees to spot koalas and tiger(spotted tail) quolls, but don’t be surprised by the parma wallaby that’s giving you a suspicious look. The area is also home to some rare and endangered bird species such as the red goshawk and the black-breasted button-quail. You’ll have a chance to get good views of Mount Warning(Wollumbin) as well. Keep in mind that you can stay at the Rummery Park Campground and head back to make this a return trip. The track is mostly undemanding, yet the length of it might be tiring. Remember to take 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.
