Hard track
Starting from Mount Glorious Road, Mount Glorious, this walk takes you on a circuit in the woodlands of D’aguilar National Park, visiting Middle Kobble Creek Falls and a couple of campsites along the way. Accessible with a side trip from the bush camp nearby, the gorgeous waterfall has a tranquil feel to it. It’s best viewed after some decent rainfall, and generally teeming with skinks and freshwater(keelback) snakes. Although they’re mostly harmless, keelbacks can bite if threatened. You may come across lots of other wild animals such as goannas and boars as you explore the diverse rainforest. The track also has campsites on each side where you can spend the night(permit required) and make this a multiday trip. Keep in mind that these sites are old school, meaning you have to bring everything with you(don’t forget the mozzie spray). Good trekking shoes and hiking poles will lessen the load on your body. Keep an eye out for sunbaking snakes of different sizes and species. 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.
