Starting near the Gorge Car park on Chalet Road, this walk leads first to The Monolith, then loops around Lake Catani via the Gorge - Lake Catani Track. You'll be welcomed by the colossal balancing rock as you make your way to the top. Take your time to enjoy the spectacular 360-degree views of the plateau. Continue along a well-marked trail to Lake Catani, an idyllic spot surrounded by alpine ash and snow gum forests where there are plenty of pretty picnic nooks and wildlife to be spotted. In summer, you can hire a kayak and glide atop the pristine waters of Lake Catani or enjoy a swim to escape the heat. 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.
